Research in Technology Education - International Approaches


With the increasing technology orientation in modern societies Technology Education is gaining more and more importance. It should help in developing an understanding of technology as well as skills and self-concepts to deal with technology. However, there is a lack of knowledge in how Technology Education operates and what its outcome will be. Thus, research work has to be done in different fields of Technology Education. Upcoming academics of the CETE network have dedicated themselves to such research questions.
The Center of Excellence for Technology Education (CETE) is an international network consisting of six Universities (University of Missouri; University of Cambridge; University of Luxembourg; University of Applied Sciences and Arts Northwestern Switzerland; Delft University of Technology and University of Duisburg-Essen) with the mission of development work. One aim of CETE is to support the qualification of young academics in the research field of Technology Education.
Thus, the present book will attempt to resolve the lack of research in Technology Education by presenting the research work of upcoming academics. In this way, CETE contributes to its development work by extending the research results in Technology Education as well as by supporting young academics.
Beside two basic articles about Technology Education research, there are different studies and their results presented. Three different drafts of studies offer future prospects for research results.
