GERA Media Award
Educational science knowledge plays a central role in the everyday lives of almost everyone as well as in all educational institutions. In this sense, it is not only the educational scientists themselves who have a significant task to bring this knowledge to the public, but also the media. In order for this to happen appropriately and competently, qualified and thematically knowledgeable journalists are necessary. With its media award, GERA would like to honour those working in the field of educational journalism who take on this task responsibly and competently. All types of media are considered that take up topics from the field of education and upbringing and present them to an interested public. But also a critical examination of educational science itself or its institutions can be the subject of an appreciation.
At the 2014 jubilee congress celebrating the 50th anniversary of the DGfE, the media prize was awarded to Martin Spiewak (Die ZEIT).
