The research unit for subject education produces research on the subjects and thematic areas of teaching and learning at schools. Core contexts comprise elementary education and secondary education; other forms of education and contexts of learning and teaching are not excluded, however.

Research in the unit focuses on teaching and learning within a framework of a particular subject or a discipline. Research on didactics emphasises the underlying scientific discipline of the subject in question: its modes of thinking and constructing knowledge as well as the meaning and significance of its traditions. Research within the unit is often multi-method and cross-disciplinary in nature.
