Working Group Vocational and Business Education with a Focus on Structural Questions in Vocational Education, Prof. Dr. Dietmar Frommberger
The working group has been newly established within the framework of the foundation (Press release) and is financially supported by the donor organisations over a period of five years. The endowed professorship will continue as a full professorship after the end of the endowment period. It is fully integrated into university teaching and committee work.
In research, the work area is dedicated to basic and application-oriented questions of vocational and economic education and training research. One focus is on the structural issues of vocational education and training. These include regulatory and didactic aspects, for example for the analysis and further development of the vocational training system, curricular fundamentals, the initial and continuing training of vocational training personnel, the examination system, etc. Special consideration is given to the systematic view of other European and non-European countries and thus the international comparison.
In teaching, together with the work area of the specialist colleague Prof. Dr. Thomas Bals, the specialist area of vocational and business education, including vocational didactics, is responsible. Vocational and business education is aimed at the educational training of vocational training personnel, in particular teachers at vocational schools. The following courses of study are currently offered:
