New professorship Educational Data Science filled with Hanna Gaspard
Hanna Gaspard, who has successfully held the temporary professorship "Empirical Educational Research in the Context of Societal Heterogeneity" at IFS since November 2020, has accepted the call to the W2 professorship "Educational Data Science" as of 01.03.2023. Hanna Gaspard's research group will focus on the use of complex data in the field of education using appropriate statistical methods for questions in educational science. Thus, this professorship represents a forward-looking link between the Faculty of Education, Psychology and Educational Research and the Faculty of Statistics. The research of the group is divided into three interrelated strands: (1) the development of learning attitudes and their effects on educational and career trajectories, (2) the development and evaluation of interventions to promote learning attitudes and educational outcomes, and (3) quality teaching and its interrelationships with teacher and student characteristics. We are very pleased about the enrichment of the research spectrum as well as the collaboration and wish Hanna Gaspard a good start!
