Chair of school pedagogy


The ITELab (Initial Teacher Education Lab) project was a European project, coordinated by European Schoolnet and co-funded under the European Commissions’ Erasmus+ Program (Cooperation and Innovation for Good Practices, Knowledge Alliances for higher education). The project started in January, 2017 and was successfully completed in December, 2019.

Within the ITELab project, the team of the chair of school pedagogy, University of Würzburg, was responsible for the project evaluation. This included organizing and coordinating the piloting of the contents developed in the course of the project as well as collecting, evaluating and interpreting data for these pilots. The evaluation reports have been published in 2018 and 2019.
