PhD Candidate

Project duration

2017 - 2020

Project description

In Project 5, interdisciplinary collaboration between teachers of biology and physics is simulated. Pre-service teachers of these subjects are supposed to learn how to collaboratively diagnose high school students’ scientific reasoning skills. In phase 1 the project comprises three studies. With respect to instructional support, the effects of direct instruction and of socio-cognitive scaffolding by means of collaboration scripts are investigated.

Current Status 

  • Project phase 1: Currently we are in the middle of the final data collections. First publications will follow shortly.
