The funding scheme aims thus at the sustainable improvement of teacher training, especially focusing on its first qualification stage, that is the attainment of a teaching degree from a university. This includes improving the structure of ITP provision, that is cross-linking disciplines, didactics and educational sciences, and offering more special student support services as well as explicit training for dealing with inclusion in the classroom. The programme also serves to bridge the theory-practice gap, that is to integrate the more theoretically (teaching degree) and the more practically oriented stages (preparatory service and continuous professional development) of German teacher education.

Sabine Doff is the responsible academic director of this structured PhD program at the University of Bremen Center for Teacher Education.
The structured PhD program „Duale Promotion“ combines a PhD in subject pedagogy („Fachdidaktik“) and the preparatory phase of teacher education („Referendariat“). It is a unique way for qualifying young researchers in the field both for a career at school and at university. At the Center for Teacher Education we continually work on the program together with the PhD students, the academic coordinator and colleagues from within and beyond Bremen University to continually improve the program. On Jan. 1st, 2021, the second interdisciplinary group in the program started with a broad variety of topics all based on Design-Based Research concepts (2021-2024).

History of Language Learning and Teaching net (HoLLT)
Sabine Doff is a member of the HoLLT net committee.
The overall goal of the AILA Research Network for the History of Language Learning and Teaching is to stimulate research into the history of language learning and teaching within applied linguistics internationally. Such research will help furnish necessary historical perspectives for professional reflection on how language education is or should be carried out today, including – for example -- in the areas of appropriate development of language education policies, curricular and textbook reform initiatives and teaching methodologies for different contexts, which can thereby be historically as well as sociologically and culturally defined and assessed.
