Leisure time physical activity and sports are key elements of an integrated education and important resources for lifelong learning. The research line “education” covers interdisciplinary projects on physical education in schools as well as extracurricular education in sports. Moreover, educational effects of leisure time physical activity and sports and their conditions are explored.
Within the framework of a multitude of different research foci and projects, the departments of the Institute of Sports Science push education-related topics:
The Interfaculty Research Institute for Sports and Physical Activity conducts project-related research on the subject of school and out-of-school education. In addition, application-oriented basic research within the framework of the interdisciplinary LEAD Graduate School & Research Network is intended to create a basis for evidence-based education policy.
