Our research projects focus on aspects of teaching and learning with and about digital media in school and lessons as well as in teacher education from a pedagogical, technical, interdisciplinary and international comparative perspective.
- Breaking Bad Behaviour: In order to advance the students’ class management competencies, a Virtual Reality Environment was developed in cooperation with the Chair of Human-Computer Interaction, Prof. Dr. Latoschik. We also study the implementation of this environment in teacher education. Click here to learn more.
- VARyFast: VARyFast is an inter-university and interdisciplinary initiative (Virtual + Augmented Reality in the FAST Alliance) where modules are developed to foster a basic education in the fields of Virtual and Augmented Reality in various degree programs, e.g., teacher education, engineering studies, and social pedagogy.
