Digital technology has been a revolution for the modern information society and many areas of everyday life. In the field of learning and instruction, digital technology has had a major influence on how people learn. Advantages of technology-enhanced learning and instruction include the freedom of scheduling learning activities, adaptive support, and personalised learning environments.

Our research group focusses on Learning, Design and Technology within this fast evolving field. In particular. we are interested in the following research areas:

  • Learning Analytics (e.g., Ifenthaler, 2015a)
  • Technology Integration in Classroom Settings, e.g., iPads (e.g., Ifenthaler & Schweinbenz, 2013)
  • First-year Higher Education Students (e.g., Mah & Ifenthaler, in press)
  • School and Curriculum Development (e.g., Gosper & Ifenthaler, 2014)
  • Automated Semantic Assessment and Feedback (e.g., Ifenthaler 2014)
  • Learning-dependent Change of Cognitive Structure (e.g., Ifenthaler, 2015b)
  • Design, Assessment, and Analytics of Serious Games (e.g., Loh, Sheng, & Ifenthaler, 2015)
  • Massive Open Online Courses (e.g., Ifenthaler & Schumacher, in press)
  • Complex problem solving (e.g., Eseryel, Law, Ifenthaler, Ge, & Miller, 2014)
  • STEAM Education (e.g., Ge, Ifenthaler, & Spector, 2015)
  • Digital Knowledge Maps (e.g., Hanewald & Ifenthaler, 2014)
