Research in the microcosm day care center: Topics, technologies and transference
Grand opening of the scientific institution “Forschungs- und Lehrkindertagesstätte der Erziehungswissenschaftlichen Fakultät der Universität Leipzig”
Last summer the FRÖBEL-Kindergarten “Am Elster-becken”, a child care center with a research and teaching profile, started to operate on the campus of the faculty of education, University of Leipzig. The next milestone will be the initiation of research and teaching activities associated with the child care center. We celebrate the start with a scientific Conference which you are cordially invited to join!
Supported by digital media und innovative assessment technology this throughout Germany unique research setting offers the opportunity to ‘zoom’ into the everyday life of children and pedagogues and receive an unaltered insight into the microcosm child care center.
The well-known environment, rules/rituals and the presence of familiar people will enable a new quality of research in the areas of children’s autonomous activities and self-selected play as well as in the areas of interaction and learning with teachers and peers.
The continuous education and care of the children beginning from age one until school entry additionally allows for longitudinal analysis concerning cognitive and emotional development.
The Conference will present current research projects and scientific findings in relation to the educational environment „child care center“ and discuss potentials, challenges and limitations within this exceptional setting that integrates early childhood education, care, scientific research and teaching.
Please be aware that the Conference language is German (except for english titled contributions).
