As part of University of Duisburg-Essen's initiative "ProViel - Professionalisierung für Vielfalt" ("professionalization for diversity"), the chair of Educational Psychology runs the researcg ambulance "FoBu". FoBu's offers are aimed at children, parents, legal guardians, education students, teachers, and schools. We offer diagnosis, intervention, as well as consultation for children and their families. Education students, teachers, and schools can profit from our workshops and seminars.

15.02.2018 Diágo – Problem-Based E-Learning Environment for Education Students


For the great achievements in digitalized teaching, the chair of Educational Psychology, led by Prof. Dr. Annemarie Fritz-Stratmann, recieved the "Fellowships für Innovation in der digitalen Hochschullehre 2018" by Stifterverband für die Deutsche Wissenschaft e.V. and the Northrhine-Westphalian Ministry of Culture and Science. On "Diágo", education students acquire skills in process-oriented diganostic through video simulations, which they will be able to apply in their future inclusive teaching.

01.09.2018 Teaching Project: An Interdisciplinary Approach to Dealing with Linguistic Diversity – Problem-Oriented Learning in Math for Multilingual Children


This project is supported by one of University of Duisburg-Essen's three main research areas "Change of Present Societies". Moritz Herzog (Institute of Psychology) and Dr. Erkan Gürsoy (Institute for German as a Second Langauge and German as a Foreign Language) developed a diagnosis tool that makes it possible to capture mathematical concepts of early firstgraders in German as well as Turkish.
