Graphic element for the subject of EducationThe subject covers current educational research and focuses on issues relating to socialisation, learning and identity in a transnational, multi-ethnic and intercultural context.

It provides in-depth theoretical knowledge with the aim of developing knowledge of, and a critical approach to, the dominant ethnocentric and dualistic concepts and values in school and the surrounding community. The subject thus aims to broaden the understanding of how knowledge is constructed, which knowledge is regarded as important and how similarities, differences and boundaries are used in these knowledge constructions. These intercultural approaches are applied in heterogeneous learning environments and entail striving for increased awareness of differing relationships to knowledge, education and learning.
