GLOBAL TEXTBOOK RESOURCE CENTER (GLOTREC)

GLOTREC consolidates the Georg Eckert Institute’s position at the centre of international educational media research. Cooperative agreements with other institutions around the world enable GLOTREC to combine the GEI’s expertise and educational media collections with those of other renowned international libraries and research institutions in order to promote interdisciplinary, cross-border and multi-lingual research and to conserve educational media as an important part of our cultural heritage.

LEIBNIZ SCIENCE CAMPUS – POSTDIGITAL PARTICIPATION – BRAUNSCHWEIG

The Leibniz ScienceCampus – Postdigital Participation – Braunschweig uses social living labs to research the potential for social participation in education and urban communal living among different user groups in a world now shaped by hybrid analogue and digital technology and practices.

RESEARCH TOOLBOX

The research toolbox is a functionally flexible digital system that allows researchers, developers and librarians to collate digital texts for specific projects or corpora and to add elements such as machine readable information, or to analyse them, using different software components.

TEXTBOOK COMMISSIONS

The textbook commissions coordinated by the GEI and supported by the foreign office represent the roots of the Institute in international textbook revision like no other area. They uniquely combine research and knowledge transfer and serve as the models for bi- and multilateral projects in the field of textbook cooperation worldwide.

THE BASEMENT - THE GEI’S DIGITAL LAB

Test the future: the Basement is a space that is open to anyone interested in testing and researching digital education or collaborating on critically reflected designs for digital education. It is a space where routines are broken down and assumptions are questioned. Researchers and practitioners use ethnographic, speculative, de-colonial and participative methods to pose questions that open creative and critical perspectives on digital educational media. We also reflect upon current solutions for public (digital) learning processes.
