Learning Sciences and Educational Design Technologies

The Focus Group “Learning Sciences and Educational Design Technologies” consists of Rudolf Mößbauer Tenure Track Professor, Prof. Dr. Anna Keune, and her team at the Technical University of Munich. The Focus Group addresses questions at the intersection of learning sciences and design. It investigates the role high- and low-tech materials play in STEM and digital skills education and designs for learning from constructionist and socio-material perspectives on learning. The central aim is to contribute to equitable, diverse, and inclusive STEM and digital skills education. Selected projects focus on supporting AI ethics literacy, supporting arts-based approaches in STEM learning for cultural literacy learning, and learning with and about additive manufacturing in construction.
