Geography didactics is the science of learning and teaching in geography specific contexts. Close co-operations exist with geography, pedagogy, psychology, other subject didactics as well as the stakeholders of school practice.
Subject didactics deals with the development of theoretical approaches and models which can explain the learning and teaching of geography, with conducting empirical studies especially with regard to geographical-didactical teaching/ learning research as well as with the development of geography specific educational concepts, methods and media.
The HGD supports geography education research in manifold ways:
- Conferences and other events (especially HGD symposia and junior scientist workshops)
- HGD dissertation award
- HGD junior scientist group
- International activities
