Korea-Tübingen PhD Program: Project 1/2024: PhD Project Title: Innovative Technologies to Enhance Adaptivity in the classroom.

Topic Description: Generative AI offers significant potential for providing adaptive support to students. However, available systems are not explicitly trained to provide adequate support during learning and at the same time foster students self-regulation, which is also known as the assistance dilemma. Goal of the current project is to empirically examine under which individual and instructional conditions (e.g., prior knowledge, motivation, learning task) what kind of support is needed to maximize learning. The project is embedded in a larger cooperation between the Tübingen Center for Digital Education and the Tübingen AI Center. Predominantly, experimental field studies will be employed by integrating process data (e.g., eye-tracking, log-files, physiological data).

Faculty: Faculty of Economics and Social Sciences
Institute/Section/Subject: Institute of Education

Supervising Professor(s): Prof. Dr. Andreas Lachner

About the Supervisor(s): Andreas Lachner is professor of educational research with a focus on teaching and learning with educational technology and Co-Director of the Tübingen Center for Digital Education. His research activities include the support of (meta-)cognitive and motivational learning processes while using educational technology (e.g., mixed realities, artificial intelligence), as well as the integration of technology in subject-specific teaching scenarios, for instance during adaptive teaching. Another focus concerns the professional competences of teachers for technology integration, as well as how (pre-service) teachers can be supported to develop these competencies.

Requirements for the application:
Required Degrees: M.A., M.Sc., or M.Ed.
