The i-conf project aims at the development and step-by-step implementation of a free digital feedback tool for confirmation work. Included in the project is a third study on confirmation work, which is representative at the level of the regional churches, the EKD and the participating European churches.
The research project promotes feedback-based quality development of confirmation work. The main objective is to understand quality of confirmation work better, with the intention of developing it.
For this purpose, a digital, multifunctional feedback tool “i-conf” is being developed that can be used free of charge and contributes to a subject-oriented quality development of confirmation work on several levels:
Confirmands can easily give feedback on their experiences during confirmation work via their mobile phones.
Full-time employees and volunteers gain an impression of the confirmands’ feedback without time-consuming manual evaluation of feedback forms or research methodological expertise. On the basis of the feedback, they can draw conclusion for a further refinement of confirmation work in their parish.
The data will be evaluated at local, regional, national and international level. Thus, i-conf contributes to parish and church development as well as to the networking of confirmation work in Europe.
I-conf provides the basis for a third empirical study on confirmation work (2021/2022). The project builds on experiences and outcomes of two national and international studies on confirmation work, which were coordinated from the University of Tubingen in 2007-2018.
The international research project is a joint effort of research teams and Protestant from Austria, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Norway, Poland, Sweden, Switzerland and Hungary.
