What is my role within CATALPA?

As a cognitive psychologist, I lead the sub-project at DIE within the framework of the joint project NOVA:ea. This project focuses in particular on the diversity-appropriate design and acceptance of e-assessments. In the executive board, I represent the cooperation partners of the research center.


New digital technologies have great potential to support the design of individually adaptive teaching/learning processes across educational sectors. However, the complex research and development work requires close interdisciplinary cooperation. The research center CATALPA offers ideal conditions for my work.
