Annual meeting of the Leibniz Education Research Network (LERN) at the LIfBi

Educational research can be conducted from completely different perspectives, in various disciplines, and with diverse objectives. The Leibniz Research Alliance “Leibniz Education Research Network” (Leibniz Forschungsverbund “Bildungspotenziale”, LERN) connects leading institutions and people from various disciplines, who are committed to educational research. About 30 researchers of the LERN network met at their scientific annual meeting at the Leibniz Institute for Educational Trajectories in Bamberg this year.
The participants of the LERN conference meeting. 
Professor Marcus Hasselhorn, German Institute for International Educational Research (DIPF), led through an evening of keynote speeches and poster presentations on current research findings as well as intense and fruitful debates of various aspects around the topic of “Educational Political Reforms: Results, Need for Action, and Potential”. During this discussion, it was the tension between educational research and educational political reforms that became particularly evident. The issue of the format and possibilities of political consultation was also discussed in this context.
