Welcome to the Professorship for Learning Sciences and Educational Design Technologies.
The Professorship for Learning Sciences and Educational Design Technologies addresses questions at the intersection of learning sciences and design. We investigate 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. Our central aim is to contribute to equitable, diverse, and inclusive STEM and digital skills education.
The Professorship for Learning Sciences and Educational Design Technologies is located at the Department of Educational Sciences within TUM’s School of Social Sciences and Technology as well as TUM’s Institute for Advanced Studies through the Rudolf Mößbauer Fellowship Program.

Our research focuses on to the empirical study of learning in situ through qualitative, design-based research, and quantitative methods, including innovative methodological designs to capture instructional activities with digital and tangible tools.
Our approach to teaching builds on research of how people learn well. Our teaching is guided by constructionist and connected learning principles as well as participatory instructional design. We honor students’ backgrounds and strengthen their voice.
