Based on research investigating the skills development of teachers, an online counselling programme for planning the teaching career is developed, evaluated and adapted within the scope of an international cooperation arrangement. It includes information texts about the teaching profession, reports from everyday school life, and self-exploration techniques to aid the individual in the assessment of personal interest in and potential for a variety of functions in the educational sector (e.g. as teacher, administrator or teacher trainer). In addition to these offers aimed at the target group comprising teachers, CCT also provides special tools for professionals, who hope to use the programme for the purposes of counselling, teacher training, or research.

The “Linz Assessment Sheet on Classroom Management” (German abbreviation LDK) is a questionnaire designed to investigate the leadership practice of teachers. It emerged from studies looking at classroom management together with practical experiences gained from teacher education.
The LDK has been designed with those student teachers and teachers in mind, who wish to achieve clarity with regard to their pedagogical action and the framework conditions thereof, in order to continue to develop their action. The LDK is also suitable for use as a research instrument.

Building on earlier own studies and on results gained by other researchers, we explore which classroom management strategies produce which consequences under which conditions. The conditions considered include the characteristics of the acting teachers (e.g. their personality structure) and of the pupils or classes (e.g. their performance level), as well as of the context (e.g. the subject being taught or the type of school). Research efforts aim at producing fundamental insights about the field of research on the one hand, and at the development of offers of support (e.g. diagnostic tools) for teachers, who wish to further enhance their skills in classroom management, on the other hand.
