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.

Before the fluid of the middle ear drains and sound waves penetrate for the first time, the inner ear cells of newborn rodents practice for their big debut. Researchers at Johns Hopkins report they have figured out the molecular chain of events that enables the cells to make “sounds” on their own, essentially “practicing” their ability to process sounds in the world around them.
The researchers, who describe their experiments in the Dec. 3 edition of the journal Cell, show how hair cells in the inner ear can be activated in the absence...
Planet Earth experienced a global climate shift in the late 1980s on an unprecedented scale, fuelled by anthropogenic warming and a volcanic eruption, according to new research published this week.
Scientists say that a major step change, or ‘regime shift’, in the Earth’s biophysical systems, from the upper atmosphere to the depths of the ocean and from...

Nerve cells cover their high energy demand with glucose and lactate. Scientists of the University of Zurich now provide new support for this. They show for the first time in the intact mouse brain evidence for an exchange of lactate between different brain cells. With this study they were able to confirm a 20-year old hypothesis.
In comparison to other organs, the human brain has the highest energy requirements. The supply of energy for nerve cells and the particular role of lactic acid...
