Teaching and Learning as a scientific field focuses on man’s way of changing his understanding of his surroundings and his behaviour on the basis of the experience he makes. Research in Teaching and Learning is conducted in relation to content – for example natural science, technology, culture or aesthetics – teachers, pupils or students; contexts where teaching and learning take place. The research may concern or be influenced by their mutual relationships. Research in Teaching and Learning as a subject in its own right constitutes an important scientific foundation for teacher training.
