Research Based on Learning in Primary Teacher Education A comparative case study on Continuous Development on Inquiry Based Natural Science Education

Astrid Huber


This article shows the results of numerous teacher-training courses at universities in Austria and Germany. The main goal is to find a successful concept that
enables students and teachers to plan research based lessons in primary schools. Di-rective instructions – as well as in the university and in the classroom – are institution-alized, but a large number of studies provide unsatisfactory results compared to inquiry based learning arrangements. With this concept, the students work on their own topics according to their own ideas, imagination and creativity. Of course, practical experi-ence in the classroom is absolutely imperative, as well as reflection with the fellow teachers and students.
