Welcome this Website
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.
I am very pleased to participate in the international working group on Critical Big Data Literacy (CBDL), supported by the Center of Advanced Internet Studies (CAIS) in Bochum, in the next few days and I am looking forward to the exchange. With the question "From Critical Code Studies to Critical Big Data Studies?" I will establish a perspective, that is dedicated to the cultural as well as educational implications of big data and is dedicated to a (big) data literacy.
The interdisciplinary lecture series of the faculties of humanities and computer science, which takes place in the summer semester 2020, combines philosophical, cultural, educational and educational perspectives with positions from computer science and political science. The lectures are going to adress aspects of creating autonomy in the digital age against the background of freedom and control.
The lecture series takes place every Thursday from 5-7pm in lecture hall VI (building 44).
More information is available on the project page at autonomie.ovgu.de.
