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 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 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.
