Abstract / short description:
The research training group focuses on the question how transitions in the life course are shaped and produced. Transition research so far has dealt with structural factors of transitions and their effects on individual agency and life course trajectories. The research training group starts from the assumption that transitions are shaped and produced through social practices. It aims at complementing transition research by the analysis of how transitions do emerge. The focus lies on the interrelation between discourses on transitions, institutional regulation and pedagogical action as well as individual processes of learning, education and coping. Re-search questions address all life ages from childhood up to old age along three thematic strands:
How are transitions produced and framed by the discursive articulation of demands, dis-tinction of success and failure and identification of risks? 
How are transitions regulated and processed at institutional level? What aspects of peda-gogical action are included in the formal and informal processing of transitions?
How are transitions shaped through individual processes of coping, learning and education and how is this reflected in individual development and life course trajectories?
Apart from this, interest lies on the interrelationship between levels on which transitions are shaped and produced. The research training group addresses excellent graduates interested in these questions, especially from educational science, sociology and psychology.
