Dear valued colleagues,

How can we tailor learning situations to the learners in the best possible way and help them to achieve their educational goals in the long term? The research in my newly established department at the University of Stuttgart, Germany (https://www.ife.uni-stuttgart.de/en/llis/) targets this question by combining educational theories with psychological methods and algorithms from artificial intelligence to develop intelligent educational technologies.

Currently, I have two open positions for PhD students within this scope of research:

  *   The first position focuses on the development of a mobile app that features the virtual character of a wild bee to promote environmental awareness in the school context: https://bwsyncandshare.kit.edu/s/PFsLdTZyNbrcock

  *   The second position focuses on the on the formal modeling and decomposition of cognitive load factors in learning scenarios and includes the validation of model predictions with neurophysiological data: https://bwsyncandshare.kit.edu/s/7rYkKi8F4QRyNHR

Please feel free to share the announcement with potentially interested candidates.

Many thanks in advance for your support!

Best regards,
