Digitisation and Education
The Leibniz Research Group Digitisation and Education addresses questions concerning the optimal design and adaptation of digital learning and testing materials, as they are increasingly needed for individualized or adaptive digital learning environments in various educational settings.

With a focus on experimental studies, for example, computer-based (formative) assessment with different kinds of feedback as well as effects of multimedia in the test context are investigated. The research group focuses on different methodological approaches (e.g. augmented/virtual reality, eye-tracking, artificial intelligence) and conducts research both in the laboratory and in school practice. The aim is to holistically capture the effects of digital design features on students and relevant target groups in terms of cognitive, metacognitive, affective, and motivational changes. In this context, the recording and analysis of behavioral process data plays an important role, which allows additional elucidation of ongoing learning processes and in the course of processing tasks across time.

In addition to application-oriented basic research in the laboratory, practical intervention studies in schools (e.g., to support teachers in adaptive teaching through formative digital assessment) are also on the agenda.

Currently, the Leibniz Research Group is in the process of being established.
