eHumanities in Educational Science and Educational Research

Digitisation of distinctly humanities-oriented and qualitative educational science and educational research bears a high potential for the disciplines and enables new forms of cooperation and work. eHumanities at DIPF takes on the dynamics of these new fields of research and development, and supports new research approaches in distinctly humanities-based and qualitative educational science and educational research. It is also important to demonstrate limits of digital research and integrate practice.

eHumanities at DIPF can be perceived as an intersection of educational research, infrastructure with digital tools and informational research and development. At the digital BBF, eHumanities infrastructures were already developed in the early 21st Century (Pictura Paedagogica Online - only in German, Scripta Paedagogica Online, Editions).

The Virtual Research Environment Semantic CorA took on further potentials in research processes from 2011 to 2014: the collaborative Web-2.0 tool enables semantic annotation and analysis of research data, running detailed studies on research data and apparatus, and the exploration of new processes and data forms (e.g. altmetrics in a Social Media context).

The eHumanities portfolio of activities in educational  science and educational research was expanded in 2015 by adding the BMBF-funded Centre for Digital Research in the Humanities-, Social and Educational Sciences (CEDIFOR).
