The starting point for research and development projects at Bern University of Teacher Education are social issues and issues relevant to policy in the context of education. Their findings contribute to a better understanding of teaching and learning processes and support scientifically based decisions on actions. The research and development department is coordinated by the Institute for Research, Development and Evaluation (IFE).
