Research syntheses promote the transfer of scientific knowledge into practice by bridging the gap between educational research and educational practice. They not only provide an overview but also offer decision-making foundations. As a result, they facilitate access to educational research for teachers, schools, parents, administrators, and policymakers.
Our working group ForSynZIB – Research Syntheses in Learning and Instruction at the Centre for International Student Assessment (ZIB), is part of the Professorship for Research on Learning and Instruction at the Technical University of Munich (TUM). We regularly produce research syntheses on relevant topics in educational research.
Topics of our Research Syntheses
As a scientific research body and as an affiliated institute of the Technical University of Munich (TUM) the Centre for International Student Assessment is mainly focused on the PISA studies in Germany. In addition it covers the production of Research Syntheses and conducts school and teaching research as well as methodological research. More about the ZIB.
