Our area of research links Outdoor Education and outdoor sports with the demands of professional competency development. The project themes are divided into the key areas of evaluation and shaping projects.
Shaping projects
... link experiences in the area of sport and exercise with specialised subject matter using digital media.
For instance, projects establish connections between mathematics, physics, chemistry, materials science and snowsports or provide access to water sports, kinetics, meteorology and regenerative energies using an interactive wiki system.

Evaluation projects
... explore substance, acceptance and sustainability of experiential-based and discovery-based settings.
Some results show positive effects for learners, especially in the capacity for teamwork as well as in self-confidence, conflict management, coping with anxiety, motivation and in the ability to communicate.
Demand for further development lies in didactical design and in contextualisation into the world of work.
