The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic led to enormous societal changes worldwide and touched many different areas of daily life.

Viele Jahre dominierte das Bild, Politik als Fach und Demokratie als Gegenstand würden sich nicht für den Primarbereich eignen (Kolleck und Eller-Eberstein 2019). Grundschulkinder sollten sich auf den Erwerb der grundlegenden Kompetenzen konzentrieren und dazu gehörten bspw. der Schriftspracherwerb oder die Grundrechenarten; nicht aber das Fach Pol...

With the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD), inclusive education has become the main alternative to special schools for the schooling of children with disabilities. In order to promote the global implementation of inclusive education, a variety of stakeholders form networks to transmit and exchange information and knowledg...

Der Beitrag wendet sich den Fragen zu, inwiefern Stiftungen ihr Agieren im Bildungsbereich als innovativ deklarieren und welche impliziten Verständnisse von Bildung ihrem Engagement zugrunde liegen.

Im Bildungssystem ist spätestens seit der Etablierung der empirisch vergleichenden Messung von Schulleistungen eine Zunahme an inhaltlich und strukturell tief greifenden Reforminitiativen zu beobachten. Während die aktiv in der Bildungsarbeit stehenden Akteure, vor allem die Schulen und ihre Lehrerinnen und Lehrer, lange Jahre „in Ruhe gelassen wur...
Article
Full-text available
In this article I examine how foundations use the concept of education and how they try to shape its definition and implementation. In accordance with Steven Lukes’ notion, I argue that changes in social fields are mainly triggered by normative and semantic shifts. By drawing on techniques of discourse analysis, I explore the use of discursive stra...
Article
The authors examine in how far foundations profess their actions in the field of education to be innovative and which implicit understanding of education is underlying their involvement. They start by looking at the structural and relational dimension of the actions of foundations from a field-theoretical perspective (chapter 2), and then focus on...

Although the role of trust in quality management is clear, there is a lack of research work in this area. This is due to the fact that trust is difficult to capture theoretically. Because analyzing trust requires understanding the influence of ever-changing human negotiations and social context, social network analysis (SNA) can play a valuable par...

The success of innovations essentially depends on two types of trust. First, innovations are implemented when the network members responsible for implementing them trust in their efficacy. Second, innovations are diffused through social networks whose relations are built on trust. Thus, both perceptions and relational factors play a decisive role f...
