Researchgroup Subjectorientation in Didactics 


Subject orientation refers to learners and their potentials, comprehension and needs in the context of teaching and learning processes. In this context, the so-called subjective conceptions in the sense of ideas, comprehension, and general thoughts that learners have about a particular topic will be studied by the research group of which Fares Kayali is a member. A key component of the research group will be digitalization in the context of schools.
