Research on didactics includes studies on education and teaching especially in the context of schools.Didactics is understood in a broadest possible way as a synonym for pedagogy and school pedagogy. The research includes topics such as

• the teacher’s role and pedagogical content knowledge
• curriculum and planning of teaching
• diverse learners and various pedagogical approaches
• purpose in teaching and learning
• pedagogical wellbeing in schools

Research deals with the totality of teaching-studying-learning process that can be examined from different points of views. For example, teaching can be seen as moral activity in which case the values and ethics in teaching become central in research. Different ways to study interaction in classrooms and the evaluation of teaching and learning are also important areas of research in didactics.
