International Doctoral School REASON

The Mathematics Education Group of this department is part of the international doctoral programme Scientific Reasoning and Argumentation (REASON) funded by the Elite Network of Bavaria. The programme focuses on interdisciplinary and collaborative research linking psychology, education as well as empirical research on learning in specific domains (e.g. medical education, mathematics education, or biology education). The prospective doctoral candidates will investigate several aspects related to scientific reasoning and argumentation, e.g. how children and adults process scientific evidence in different disciplines, how domain-specific and domain-general aspects play together in scientific reasoning and argumentation, and how the development of scientific reasoning and argumentation skills can be promoted by instruction.
