AERA Meeting: German and US-American educational researchers in dialogue

28.03.2014

DIPF booth at the conference in Philadelphia serves as a platform for cooperation and information.

The German Institute for International Educational Research (DIPF) offers German and US-American educational researchers an opportunity to deepen their professional exchange at the annual meeting of the American Educational Research Association in Philadelphia (AERA, 4th to 6th April).

At its booth, the DIPF service unit International Cooperation in Education (ice) invites research groups from Germany to present their projects. US-American colleagues can thus learn about their work and explore approaches to co-operation with the German researchers.

The teams from Germany span a broad scope of educational research ranging from early childhood to vocational education and training. Amongst others, they are based at universities and research institutions in Kiel, Tübingen, Mainz and Bielefeld.

On April 5th, at 4:30 pm, ice and the German Center for Research and Innovation (GCRI) are hosting an event at the Hilton Garden Inn in Philadelphia. At the venue, a topic that is relevant in both countries will be presented: Professor Dr. Kristina Reiss (TU Munich) and Professor Dr. Marilyn Strutchens (Auburn University, Alabama) will talk about national education standards for mathematics.

Common frames of reference will be revealed while the experts will also highlight national specificities. In the course of the following reception, participants will have the opportunity to get to know each other while sharing their views and information on the presented and other topics. 

International Cooperation in Education (ice) aims to support international networking activities of German educational researchers. At DIPF, ice services are offered on a permanent basis.

Im Focus: What would a tsunami in the Mediterranean look like?

A team of European researchers have developed a model to simulate the impact of tsunamis generated by earthquakes and applied it to the Eastern Mediterranean. The results show how tsunami waves could hit and inundate coastal areas in southern Italy and Greece. The study is published today (27 August) in Ocean Science, an open access journal of the European Geosciences Union (EGU).

Though not as frequent as in the Pacific and Indian oceans, tsunamis also occur in the Mediterranean, mainly due to earthquakes generated when the African...

Im Focus: Self-healing landscape: landslides after earthquake

In mountainous regions earthquakes often cause strong landslides, which can be exacerbated by heavy rain. However, after an initial increase, the frequency of these mass wasting events, often enormous and dangerous, declines, in fact independently of meteorological events and aftershocks.

These new findings are presented by a German-Franco-Japanese team of geoscientists in the current issue of the journal Geology, under the lead of the GFZ...

Im Focus: FIC Proteins Send Bacteria Into Hibernation

Bacteria do not cease to amaze us with their survival strategies. A research team from the University of Basel's Biozentrum has now discovered how bacteria enter a sleep mode using a so-called FIC toxin. In the current issue of “Cell Reports”, the scientists describe the mechanism of action and also explain why their discovery provides new insights into the evolution of pathogens.

For many poisons there are antidotes which neutralize their toxic effect. Toxin-antitoxin systems in bacteria work in a similar manner: As long as a cell...

Im Focus: Fraunhofer IPA develops prototype of intelligent care cart

It comes when called, bringing care utensils with it and recording how they are used: Fraunhofer IPA is developing an intelligent care cart that provides care staff with physical and informational support in their day-to-day work. The scientists at Fraunhofer IPA have now completed a first prototype. In doing so, they are continuing in their efforts to improve working conditions in the care sector and are developing solutions designed to address the challenges of demographic change.

Technical assistance systems can improve the difficult working conditions in residential nursing homes and hospitals by helping the staff in their work and...
