Institute for Research Methods in Psychology
Media-Based Knowledge Construction
The institute for Research Methods in Psychology – Media-based Knowledge Construction at the University of Duisburg-Essen is headed by Prof. Dr. Daniel Bodemer and is part of the Computer Science and Applied Cognitive Science department within the Faculty of Engineering.
Our research is focused on media-based communication and cognitive processing in educational contexts (e.g., in social information networks or with digital tables) as well as on providing methodologically sound support for these processes based on current research within cognitive psychology and media-didactics.
Our team offers methodological classes as well as content-related classes regarding learning and instruction, primarily for students in the Bachelor and Master degree programs in Applied Cognitive and Media Science (Komedia).
