Governance in the education system – international perspectives

04.04.2016

At the AERA Meeting in Washington, leading educational researchers from Germany and the United States will discuss the current state of research.

Experts from major institutions in the field of educational research – mostly from Germany and the US – will convene in Washington on April 9 to discuss governance approaches in school education from an international perspective.

The seminar is organized by the service unit International Cooperation in Education (ice), on the occasion of the annual meeting of the American Educational Research Association (AERA). The event will predominantly focus on the potential offered by digital methods and data assessment in empirical educational research for the purpose of school improvement.

Dr. Joann Halpern, Director of the German Center for Research and Innovation (GCRI) in New York, will open the event. The GCRI is a co-operating partner to the seminar. The introductory note will be followed by a panel discussion on “Data-Driven School Improvement.

The Role of Data for Teaching and Learning“ presenting Prof. Dr. Henry Levin (Columbia University), Prof. Dr. Eckhard Klieme (DIPF), Dr. Jack Buckley (Senior Vice President, College Board) and Prof. Dr. Benó Csapó (University of Szeged). The panel will be hosted by Prof. Dr. Petra Stanat from the Institute for Educational Quality Improvement in Berlin.

The subsequent poster session will display US-American and German research infrastructures, educational research institutions and large-scale comparative educational assessments. Research from the US is represented by the National Center for Education Statistics, the National Center for Research on Evaluation, Standards and Student Testing and the College Board, while research in Germany is represented by the Leibniz Institute for Educational Trajectories, the Centre for International Student Assessment, and the Leibniz Educational Research Network.

Participants are then invited to three workshops enabling them to present and discuss their own studies and identify opportunities for cooperation. These workshops will focus on:

1. Leadership and (System) Monitoring
2. Computer-Assisted Progress Monitoring Systems for Whole Classrooms in Primary and Secondary Education
3. Big Data, Little Data – Potentials and Boundaries of Digitization in Educational Research

Interested AERA visitors are warmly invited to take part in the event entitled “International Perspectives on School Governance”. You can find more information about the seminar on the internet, see http://ice.dipf.de/de/veranstaltungen/aera-tagungen/aera-2016

Date: April 9, 2016, 11: 00 hrs to 15:30 hrs
Venue: Marriott Marquis, Level Four, Capitol, 901 Massachusetts Avenue NW, Washington D.C.

Im Focus: Interfacial Superconductivity: Magnetic and superconducting order revealed simultaneously

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.

While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...

Im Focus: Designing Architecture with Solar Building Envelopes

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.

As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...

At TU Wien, an alternative for resource intensive formwork for the construction of concrete domes was developed. It is now used in a test dome for the Austrian Federal Railways Infrastructure (ÖBB Infrastruktur).

Concrete shells are efficient structures, but not very resource efficient. The formwork for the construction of concrete domes alone requires a high amount of...
