Edited By Gerd-Bodo von Carlsburg

Dieser Band dokumentiert eine Reihe von ausgewählten Beiträgen der XXII. Internationalen wissenschaftlichen Konferenz Bildungsreform und Lehrerausbildung zum Thema »Transkulturelle Perspektiven in der Bildung«, die vom Ministerium für Bildung und Wissenschaft der Republik Litauen und der Vilnenser Akademie für Bildungswissenschaften der Vytautas Magnus Universität in Kaunas (VDU) gemeinsam konzipiert und veranstaltet wurden. Im Fokus standen der Diskurs kulturwissenschaftlicher Bildungsforschung und der Austausch von Beispielen transkultureller pädagogischer Praxis in der Hochschul- und Schulbildung. Der Erwerb dieser interaktiven Kompetenzen in der kulturwissenschaftlichen Forschung ist Voraussetzung für die Bildung einer Identität, die den Herausforderungen unserer Gesellschaft im kommenden Jahrzehnt gerecht wird.

The majority of scientists who analyze effective lesson aspects, touch upon such problems as educational context and its influence on the effective lesson culture, effective lesson criteria, its methodical thesaurus and quality of teacher‘s performance, teaching behavior (Xu, 2011; Hattie, 2012; Helmke, 2015; Nunez, Suarez, Rosario, Vallejo, Cerezo, Valle, 2015; Russo, J., Hopkins, S., 2017; Van der Lans, R.

The questionnaire is compiled while considering transculturality aspects, relying on the analysis of the current educational practices of different European and Asian countries. Alongside with the questionnaire the authors present theoretical and practical parameters of the research.
