Research Methods in Psychology – Media-based Knowledge Construction
The Research Methods in Psychology – Media-based Knowledge Construction Lab at the University of Duisburg-Essen is headed by Prof. Dr. Daniel Bodemer and is part of the Department for Human-centered Computing and Cognitive Science within the Faculty of Computer Science.
Our research is focused on media-based communication and cognitive processing in educational contexts as well as on providing methodologically sound support for these processes based on current research within cognitive psychology and media-didactics. It comprises individual and collaborative learning processes in formal and informal educational contexts, such as schools, universities, museums, social media, and vocational training.
Our team offers methodological and content-related courses regarding learning and instruction, primarily for students in the Bachelor's and Master's degree programmes in Applied Cognitive and Media Science.
