Research Centre for Pedagogy and Bildung

As one of VIA’s most significant research areas, we develop knowledge within pedagogy, ‘bildung’, education, and guidance – and are sought-after research partners nationally and internationally. 

Our research and development helps qualify VIA’s educational programmes as well as professions – in Denmark and internationally. We help bring awareness to the challenges facing the professional fields – and co-operate with educators, students, private and public partners in finding ways to navigate these challenges. 

Our focus is on the professionals working with children’s and adolescents’ learning and wellbeing across institutions, schools, leisure time, and home – as well as on lifelong learning.

We participate and share our knowledge as research partners and advisors locally, nationally, and internationally.
