Working in small groups and open to the world
For the last few years the Faculty of Education has been listed as being one of the top universities in Italy in its field by the national daily newspaper ‘La Repubblica’. Among many other factors, this is due to the excellent research being conducted at the Faculty; research which is seamlessly integrated into the teaching in all the various subject areas. This means that students can take advantage of the most up-to-date research findings.  

Active collaboration between German and Italian education experts creates a close and mutually beneficial connection between German and Italian educational traditions in Brixen/Bressanone. One of the distinguishing features of the Faculty is the study programme in the field of early childhood education accompanied by research projects, which is unique in its form in the German-speaking area.  

In addition to teacher training for all levels of education, the Faculty offers trilingual Bachelor’s degree programmes in Applied Social Sciences as well as Communication Sciences. Students may continue their studies with the Master in Innovation and Research for Social Work and Social Education, which is offered as a distance learning programme, too. In Europe, the Faculty in Brixen/Bressanone is one of the few faculties offering a postgraduate degree in a structured PhD course.  

The degree courses are characterized by their trilingualism (German, Italian, English), excellent support, small student groups and practical orientation, as well as teaching by internationally renowned professors. Thanks to its state-of-the-art equipment, the Brixen/Bressanone campus provides the ideal study conditions and the chance to improve language skills in the Language Centre or in the “Writing centre”.
Further information is available in German and Italian.

Teachers’ Acting and (T)acting in Heterogenous ClassroomsExternal eventsHeterogeneous classrooms are transcultural spaces of tension calling for adequate pedagogical responses. What is it like for teachers to teach and act in these spaces? How do teachers experience and deal with the tensions of cultural diversity? How do they know what is the right thing to do? We will zoom in on particular moments from daily classroom life when transcultural tensions surface, and how teachers respond, assess, judge, decide and act – in the heat of the moment. Drawing on the construct of pedagogical tact, embedded in the German tradition of pedagogy, we will explore what tact looks like in handling the tensionalities of transcultural situations in day to day classroom life.Room BX A2.24, Regensburger Allee 16 - Viale Ratisbona, 16, 39042 Brixen-BressanoneNeda Forhghani-Arani
