Sport and exercise are central means of holistic education, which is seen as a lifelong process. In this context, the research focus on education includes interdisciplinary projects on school and extracurricular education as well as on the educational effects of sport and physical activity and their conditions.
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.
