Institute of Sports Science

Educational and health research in sports

The department’s main focus under Prof. Dr. Gorden Sudeck’s direction is on educational and health research in connection with physical activity and sports. Jun. Prof. Dr. Julia Hapke is assistant professor for pedagogics and teaching methodology in physical education. Educational research emphasizes, among other areas, physical education (PE) in schools and PE teachers, placing students and their PE teachers’ competence development in the foreground. Health research, in turn, encompasses sports science applications in health promotion, prevention, therapy, and rehabilitation. Physical activity’s effects on health and wellbeing are examined integratively with interventions to promote physical activity. Health education and competence are the focus of various research projects, as these areas are key intersection points between education and health research.
