Welcome to the ass.-professorship for educational science with a focus on education in the digital world.
The particular research interests can be located in the intersecting fields of learning and educational processes with a focus on digital media and digital mediality. Digital media plays a crucial role, when it comes to self-formation and the perception of world, which is more and more driven by digital technologies that impact all societal areas, political decision making and innovation.
Digital media does not only affect our understanding of the world and how we see, it is changing the way of thinking radically. Thus, the research is addressing education and the philosophy of education by means of media theory and algorithm studies.
The courses are primarily offered for the study programs of the BA and MA Media Literacy: Audivisual Culture and Communication. In addition, the offered courses are reguraly opened to students of Computational Visualistics and Computer Science.
Additionally, students from other degree programs are invited to get in touch for supervising, if their thesis is intersecting questions of educational science, philosophy of education and digital media or digital cultures.
Dear students, for some of you this is the start of your studies and the start could certainly be different than in times of a pandemic. Nevertheless, I wish you a successful start to your studies and I am sure that we will all gain valuable experience.
Do you have experience with creative coding? Are you interested in exploring how to foster creativity and coding literacy at the same time? Processing and OpenFrameworks sound familiar to you? Then you are the perfect addition working with me.
