Welcome
The CHE is a think tank for higher education. Based on international comparisons, we develop models for the modernisation of higher education systems and institutions. These models we define in close dialogue with decision makers from the higher education sector and politics. We undertake research on higher education and develop political scenarios. Our activities aim at the realisation and testing of new models in terms of steering and controlling as well as organisational models. On the basis of thus gained experience, we assist in further developing these models by carrying out pilot projects and by critically accompanying reform measures.

31.05.2017 | All-day education: commonplace at school, but not yet entrenched in teacher training
For many teachers, working at an all-day school has already become a reality, resulting automatically in collaboration with other professional groups in education. When training to become a teacher, however, students learn only very little about the issue of all-day education, as a publication issued by Monitor Lehrerbildung has revealed. Experts call for future teachers to be prepared more effectively for the requirements of multiprofessional teamwork and all-day teaching whilst at university. more
