As a branch of psychology, Educational Psychology deals with the analysis of experience and behaviour in education and learning contexts.

The team of the Chair of Educational Psychology focuses its research work on motivational and cognitive processes in learning and teaching. In particular, we are interested in the meaning of social context factors in motivational and cognitive processes in child raising and educational settings. More information about our current research work can be found under “Research”.
