The chair deals with inclusive German didactics as well as with the special focus on language.

Over the next few years, we will be investigating how linguistic and communicative skills can be promoted in cultural/political/vocational school projects for all pupils (with and without special needs).

With the help of empirically evaluated support measures, all pupils should be able to participate culturally, politically and professionally in the sense of inclusion. All our studies are designed to be cyclical and conducted in collaboration with teachers within the framework of design-based research (Philippakos et al., 2021).
