    "PISA, TIMSS & Co and the Consequences": How can we work with results of international educational research in teacher education?
    Human life takes place in time, as well as in space. Spaces are considered the third educators and are often underestimated pedagogically. The lectures and working groups of the 67th International Educational Work Meeting, being held 9 -13 July, in Salzburg, will discuss this topic among others such as: in which living spaces do children grow up today? How do we deal with digital spaces? Which spaces are particularly relevant pedagogically? What about inner spaces, imaginations and fantasies?
    Rita Grandori will give a guest lecture on the topic, "Protein conformational transitions and intermolecular interactions by native mass spectrometry and complementary biophysical methods" at 16:00 on 27 June, 2018 in the Hörsaal 403 of the NW-Faculty. The Department of Life Sciences invites you to join!
    Herr PD Dr. Reinhard Jung (Austrian Academy of Sciences, OREA) will give a lecture on 26 June on "Mykenisches Griechenland und Italien: verschiedene Arten des Gebens und Nehmens". Time: 18:30 - Location: Abguss-Sammlung SR E.33, Residenzplatz 1.
