Abstract

The following report presents the project “Starke Schule” [“Strong School”] as a good practice award with an attached network. Preliminary qualitative and quantitative analyses have shown that there are some beneficial factors for the diffusion process of good practice. The results indicate that some characteristics of the participating schools (cooperation practice, focus on pedagogy) and the sitting in on classes at the awarded schools are beneficial for the diffusion process of good practice, even though the diffusion process may not be guaranteed. Generally, with respect to the transfer of innovations, further research is needed.
