PhD position summary/title: Ph.D. Students in the Area of Instructional Design
The chair of Educational Technology deals with issues related to education with digital media or in digital learning environments. This position is offered in this context and as part of the SNF-funded project entitled “Self-determination theory for instructional design: The effects and interrelations of basic psychological need support on learning with static and dynamic digital learning materials (SDT4ID)”. This project deals with the potential benefits of using digital learning materials in the classroom and the importance of meeting students’ basic psychological needs, namely autonomy, competence, and connectedness, for increasing motivation in the learning process. Researchers in this project will design and conduct experiments in secondary school classrooms to investigate how digital learning media design options can positively influence the perception of these psychological needs and whether a positive perception leads to improved learning.
PhD position summary/title: 2 Doktorand*innen im Bereich Instruktionsdesign
Die Professur Educational Technology beschäftigt sich mit Fragestellungen rund um den Bereich der Bildung mit digitalen Medien oder in digitalen Lernumgebungen.

PhD position summary/title: PhD Position in Palliative Care within Doctoral Progam Clinical Science at the University of Zurich
The Competence Center Palliative Care provides special medical care for adult patients with advanced, incurable diseases. It can be helpful through all stages of illness: making medical treatment more tolerable early on and, at later stages, reducing suffering as you live with a life-threatening illness, navigating difficult treatment decisions, and improve quality of life for both, patients and their caregivers. Our palliative care team consists of doctors, nurses, psychologists, chaplains, and social workers. Our department performs researches on palliative care covering a broad spectrum including psychosocial and biological aspects in patients with advanced incurable diseases and their caregivers.
The research focus of the chair is on social-cognitive development in infancy and childhood. The project focuses on multilingual language development in early childhood. Previous research shows that monolingual and multilingual children differ in the repertoire and flexibility of their communicative behavior. In the planned research project, the characteristics of these differences in early childhood (0 – 6 years) as well as the underlying mechanisms will be investigated in more detail. For this purpose, behavioral methods but also eye tracking or electroencephalography (EEG) can be applied.
Der Forschungsschwerpunkt des Lehrstuhls liegt in der sozial-kognitiven Entwicklung im Säuglings- und Kindesalter. Das Projekt befasst sich mit der mehrsprachigen Sprachentwicklung in der frühen Kindheit. Bisherige Forschung zeigt, dass ein- und mehrsprachige Kinder sich im Repertoire und der Flexibilität ihres kommunikativen Verhaltens unterscheiden. Im geplanten Forschungsprojekt sollen die Charakteristiken dieser Unterschiede in der frühen Kindheit (0 – 6 Jahre) sowie die zugrundeliegenden Mechanismen genauer untersucht werden. Dazu können behaviorale Methoden aber auch Eyetracking oder Elektroenzephalographie (EEG) zur Anwendung kommen.
