The biographical perspective takes biography and counselling throughout the whole life course into account. It also holds the possibility to integrate and merge previously separated educational research fields such as adult education, counselling and social pedagogy.

The media educational perspective focuses on the meaning of older and newer forms of media and their impact on society by reflecting on institutional and informal processes of education.
