The interfaculty doctoral programme in Teaching Methodology facilitates scholarly investigation of questions related to teaching methodology in the context of educational institutions (schools, universities, research centres etc.). The focus is on teaching and learning processes in various different subject areas, with reference to cultural, social, societal, and personal contexts and influences. Doctoral candidates prepare a thesis, tackling new academic questions through independent research work. They extend and intensify their theoretical knowledge, as well as their methodological and interdisciplinary skills.
- Enhanced methodological and methodical skills in the field of didactics,
- Familiarity with current theoretical issues and empirical research on teaching methodology,
- Proficiency in the use of specific research methods to address selected questions and issues in teaching methodology,
- Authorship of scholarly publications at an internationally recognised level.
Candidates registering for the doctoral programme automatically become members of the
► Doctoral School of Teaching Methodology (university-wide and cross-faculty).
This has the objective of promoting interdisciplinary scholarly discourse and increased networking between doctoral candidates; it also offers two subject-specific doctoral programmes:
► Doctoral programme in “Language education and research into language teaching and learning”
► Doctoral programme in“Teaching methodology for history, social studies and political education”
The aim of the doctoral programme is to facilitate scholarly investigation of questions related to teaching methodology in the context of early childhood education, schools and tertiary educational institutions. The doctoral programme brings together and combines the work of various subject departments at the University of Graz in the area of specialised teaching methodology. It also qualifies graduates for professional roles in education where academic expertise in subject content and methodology is required. The doctoral programme is intended not only as a response to the society’s need for academically qualified teaching staff, but also to train junior researchers to work in the field of teaching methodology.
A prerequisite for admission to the doctoral programme at the University of Graz is a degree or diploma in a relevant subject area from a recognised Austrian or foreign post-secondary institution.
Candidates should make contact with an appropriate supervisor before starting this doctoral programme. Applications for admission to the doctoral programme should be submitted to the Academic Affairs office, together with a completed form (Protokoll der Vorab-Einigung) confirming their eligibility and acceptance by the proposed supervisor.
