ENB-Doctoral Program "Reason" is funded!
The Elite Network of Bavaria is funding the international doctoral program “Reason” of the MCLS. The program focuses on interdisciplinary and collaborative research linking psychology, education as well as empirical research on learning in specific domains (e.g. medical education, mathematics educations 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, as well as the development of scientific reasoning and argumentation skills can be promoted by instruction.
The Doctoral Program is a structured, interdisciplinary and international program. Involved researchers have a broad international network which they use to support the doctoral candidates of the program.
