Press release from the University of Passau (German)
The University of Passau attended the 8th conference in 2011 as representative for the Bavarian schools. The conference was organised by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research and the Standing Conference of Education Ministers in co-operation with the Deutsche Kinder- und Jugendstiftung in Berlin.
Students from the University of Passau and Ludwig Maximilians Universität Munich met at the education centre of Hanns Seidel Foundation in Wildbad Kreuth for a summer college titled 'Transcultural Studies: Language - Sports - Politics - Integration'.
At the outset of the upcoming school year, the University of Passau started one of the biggest German-wide research projects on sports pedagogy: The project 'Bewegte Ganztagsschule', managed by Professor Gerhard Waschler in co-operation with Upper Austria, investigates the successes of Lower Bavarian and Upper Austrian schools in the implementation of physical activity, games and sports at all-day schools. Moreover, the project seeks to provide hands-on recommendations for action.
