Project description

A major challenge for research on teacher education is to empirically investigate the effectiveness of instructional strategies. This PhD project will investigate clinical simulations. The research focuses on the effects of clinical simulations on competence development of student teachers and their readiness for the teaching job. The study
further wants to map how clinical simulations may close the ‘theory-practice’ gap.
