What is my role within CATALPA?

As an educational scientist, I explore in the AI.EDU Research Lab the use of artificial intelligence in higher education. In particular, I work on integrating AI into (existing) didactic teaching and learning scenarios, considering educational science paradigms. Furthermore, raising students' awareness of the topic of AI is a guiding theme in my work.


In the research focus CATALPA, I appreciate the exchange with other researchers, which inspires my own work and enriches it with insights into other disciplines. The interdisciplinary research orientation encourages my professional development in the field of education and artificial intelligence and reveals synergies as well as new research interests. .
