How do deaf-blind people communicate? How can findings on the climate change be communicated in school? How does a research cooperation across continents work? In the research podcast “Bildungsplausch” (which roughly translates to education chat or chatting about education), researchers of the Heidelberg UoE talk about current issues in the realm of education. All of this is done close to everyday life: In the conversations the researchers describe what research they currently pursue, what motivates them, and what path led them into science.
You can find the Bildungsplausch at all common podcast providers or here to download.
with Dr. Kristen Nawrotzki
Education is constantly changing. And as subjects, demographics and schools change, so does educational research. What did it mean to learn from children about children and schools in the past? And what do we learn by approaching that question from an international perspective? We welcome historian Dr. Kristen Nawrotzki from our English Department to answer those questions in the fifth episode of Bildungsplausch. We talk with her not only about her work, but also about networking in science and first steps into international research.
Ms Nawrotzki's recent publication is "Reimagining Teaching in Early 20th Century Experimental Schools", published in August 2020. Further info: https://www.palgrave.com/gp/book/9783030509637
with Prof. Dr. Andrea Wanka
How do people with deaf-blindness and/or a hearing and visual impairment communicate? How can research approach this topic? And what does this mean for the affected persons? Prof. Dr. Andrea Wanka holds the Chair for Pedagogy of the Deaf-Blind as well as Hearing and Visually Impaired at the Heidelberg University of Education and pursues these topics. In our podcast she talks about her work and why she found her calling in this research field.
