Welcome to the Centre for Higher Mathematics Education (khdm: Kompetenzzentrums Hochschuldidaktik Mathematik).

khdm is an academic collaboration between the University of Kassel, Leuphana University of Lüneburg, and the University of Paderborn. It was established in 2010 to focus on the effective teaching and learning of college mathematics.

The research of khdm focuses on practical issues in the field of teaching and learning of mathematics in higher education. In addition to contributing to the theoretical framework, the research of kdhm will illuminate and further develop teaching and learning of university-level mathematics. Areas of focus include:

  • Examining the teaching and learning of mathematical ways of thinking and working methods, as well as concepts and theories
  • Studying student attitudes and learning behaviors
  • The development and study of innovations in the field of teaching and learning methods, as well as digital media
  • The revision and innovation of the content of existing university curricula, from the viewpoint of competence-orientation and target audiences.

The paradigms and research methods used are geared to the respective research questions and objectives. Within the broad range of research questions, the following research approaches can be identified: monitoring and analysis of the current state, developing learning materials, and evaluating teaching innovations.

The Networking of Higher Mathematics Educators is a specific goal of khdm and is encouraged through the organization of national and international conferences and workshops.

The khdm was awarded "Bologna - The Future of Teaching" funding by the Mercator Foundation and the Volkswagen Foundation from 2010 through 2015.
