Educational Science Profile

The research at the Heidelberg University of Education is characterized by an interdisciplinary variety of educational topics as well as by a nationally and internationally visible focus on educational science. We are especially committed to the topic of inclusion in educational contexts. Thereby we understand inclusion as the individual promotion of all learners. This requires a high level of awareness for their respective talents as well as their potential special needs and living conditions.
