Welcome to the
Educational Psychology Research Group at
Ruhr University of Bochum
Educational Psychology examines principles and conditions of learning in different domains and settings. By these means, Educational Psychology aims at gaining a better understanding of learning mechanisms and also allows to derive implications for educational practice. Hence, Educational Psychology serves as a link between experimental and application-oriented research. In our research group, we investigate cognitive, motivational, and social aspects of learning by employing experimental research methods in laboratory and field studies.
