About the Institution
The Center for the Education of Teachers and School Research constitutes a roof organization for all institutes and faculties of Leipzig University that are charged with the education of teachers. It coordinates the cooperation between schools and universities, and is particularly active in the field of continuing education for teachers. In this framework, the center assumes activities in the field of consultation regarding the organizational structure of the university, and the content-wise orientation of teaching courses. It constitutes an interface between social, public-political, and university spheres, and is thus charged, on the one hand, with the implementation of political directives in the field of education, and, on the other hand, with the improvement of cooperation between schools and the university. Prof. Dr. Alfons Kenkmann is the managing director of the Center for Teacher Education, and holds a chair for Didactics of History at the Historical Seminar at Leipzig University.
