Quality of All-day Provisions. Perspectives after 15 Years of Research on All-day Schools

The project “Quality of All-day Provisions” opens up new perspectives after 15 years of research on All-day Schools. Further analyses of empirical data, literature reviews and knowledge transfer from research to practice will contribute to the development of the quality of all-day schools.

Project description

Fifteen years after it was decided to establish All-day Schools in Germany, most schools have implemented all-day provisions. Despite the positive trend of the quantity of All-day Schools, the development of quality of all-day provisions seems to make only slow progress.

Grüner Schriftzug des Projektnamens Quality of All-day

The Study on the Development of All-day Schools (StEG; 2005-2019) found that only high-quality provisions lead to positive students’ outcomes. Hence, the project “Quality of All-day Provisions” will contribute to the development of quality of All-day Schools by conducting further analyses of empirical data, literature reviews and knowledge transfer from research to practice.

Location & approach

The most convenient highway exits are on the B 1/A 40 (Dortmund-Barop) (closer to the North Campus) and on the A45 (Dortmund-Eichlinghofen). The university is signposted at both exits. In the local road network you will find signs to Campus Nord, where the Campus Treff is also located. From Emil-Figge-Strasse, entrance no. 18 and from Vogelspothsweg entrance no. 23 lead to parking spaces near the venue.

From Dortmund main station, take the S-Bahn "S1" in the direction of Solingen on track 7 to the stop "Dortmund-Universität" (price level A). The S-Bahn runs every 15 minutes during peak hours on weekdays and takes about 6 minutes. From Düsseldorf, the S-Bahn runs every 30 minutes. Directly at the S-Bahn station you will find the CDI building, which houses the Center for Research on Education and School Development.

One of the university's landmarks is the H-Bahn, which has two terminuses on the North Campus. One is located directly above the S-Bahn station and is easily accessible from it by elevators. The other is located in the center of Campus North at the bridge between the University Library and the Mensa, right next to the Audimax. The H-Bahn runs from here to the South Campus and the Eichlinghofen district.

Dortmund has an airport connected with some destinations in Central Europe. There are regular flights, for example, to Amsterdam, Berlin, Dresden, Katowice, Krakow, Leipzig-Halle, London, Munich, Nuremberg, Paris, Poznan, Stuttgart, Vienna and Zurich. For the approximately 20 kilometers from the Dortmund airport to the campus, you can take the bus to the main train station and from there the S-Bahn. Faster is usually the use of a cab. Far more international flight connections are offered by the Rhine-Ruhr Airport in Düsseldorf, about 60 kilometers away, which can be reached directly by S-Bahn from the university station.
