What's so special about Northwestern University

Invited to international research at Northwestern University in Chicago

Ms. Blomberg's research focus is on the instructional (classroom) design of teaching and learning arrangements in schools and universities. Her research work is embedded in the DFG priority program: "Competence models for recording individual learning outcomes and for balancing educational processes". She is a graduate psychologist and is particularly interested in individual learning effects when using videos in teacher training. Tina Seidel and Prof. Alexander Renkl (University of Freiburg) are doing her doctorate on the question of the specific advantages and disadvantages of certain instructional approaches in the design of courses in university teacher training for learning.

Upon invitation, Geraldine Blomberg will conduct research at Northwestern University in Chicago for four months in the chair of Prof. Miriam Gamoran Sherin at the School of Education and Social Policy. Prof. Gamoran Sherin and colleagues are teachers and proven experts in the field of video-based learning for teachers. Geraldine Blomberg will work on a journal publication together with Prof. Gamoran Sherin.

Your research stay is supported by a DFG research grant, which is linked to the aim of promoting guest stays by scientists in the qualification phase with promising research work.
