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


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.

The German Institute for International Educational Research (DIPF) is a scientific institution serving educational research. It supports scientists, policy-makers and educational practitioners by conducting empirical research and providing scientific infrastructure. Priorities concern educational governance, the quality and effectiveness of educational processes, individual development in educational settings and the history of education. The Institute moreover operates central educational information services, such as the German Education Server and the German Education Portal. DIPF is a member of the Leibniz Association.

Im Focus: Reliable in-line inspections of high-strength automotive body parts within seconds

Nondestructive material testing (NDT) is a fast and effective way to analyze the quality of a product during the manufacturing process. Because defective materials can lead to malfunctioning finished products, NDT is an essential quality assurance measure, especially in the manufacture of safety-critical components such as automotive B-pillars. NDT examines the quality without damaging the component or modifying the surface of the material. At this year's Blechexpo trade fair in Stuttgart, Fraunhofer IZFP will have an exhibit that demonstrates the nondestructive testing of high-strength automotive body parts using 3MA. The measurement results are available in a matter of seconds.

To minimize vehicle weight and fuel consumption while providing the highest level of crash safety, automotive bodies are reinforced with elements made from...

Im Focus: Kick-off for a new era of precision astronomy

The MICADO camera, a first light instrument for the European Extremely Large Telescope (E-ELT), has entered a new phase in the project: by agreeing to a Memorandum of Understanding, the partners in Germany, France, the Netherlands, Austria, and Italy, have all confirmed their participation. Following this milestone, the project's transition into its preliminary design phase was approved at a kick-off meeting held in Vienna. Two weeks earlier, on September 18, the consortium and the European Southern Observatory (ESO), which is building the telescope, have signed the corresponding collaboration agreement.

As the first dedicated camera for the E-ELT, MICADO will equip the giant telescope with a capability for diffraction-limited imaging at near-infrared...

Im Focus: Locusts at the wheel: University of Graz investigates collision detector inspired by insect eyes

Self-driving cars will be on our streets in the foreseeable future. In Graz, research is currently dedicated to an innovative driver assistance system that takes over control if there is a danger of collision. It was nature that inspired Dr Manfred Hartbauer from the Institute of Zoology at the University of Graz: in dangerous traffic situations, migratory locusts react around ten times faster than humans. Working together with an interdisciplinary team, Hartbauer is investigating an affordable collision detector that is equipped with artificial locust eyes and can recognise potential crashes in time, during both day and night.
