The cross-curricular group makes use of the concept of Bildung as an integrating arena for exploring diverse concepts closely related to Bildung, as democratic citizenship, dialogue, critical thinking, and diversity. These concepts carry with them a historical understanding from their antique roots directly into today’s educational discourses and are central to a teacher education built on humanistic values.
The group belongs to the Faculty of Education and International Studies.
