Dr. Nadine Bergner is a new GI Junior Fellow
Gesellschaft für Informatik (GI) has announced their designated GI Junior Fellows of 2017. Among them, there is Dr. Nadine Bergner from RWTH Aachen University, whose work includes the establishment of Europe's most successful school laboratory in computer science.
Her work connects the topics “Didactics of Computer Science” and “E-Learning”. She established a comprehensive “pupils lab” and evaluated its effects on the image of Computer Science with children and adolescents, thus earning good reputation in her scientific community. It is her aim to prepare children for life in the digital world from as early as elementary school age. To do so, she approached the GI and contributed to the “Dagstuhl-Erklärungen” of 2015 and 2016. In addition, she is the spokesperson of GI working group “E-Learning at schools”.
The Department of Computer Science congratulates Dr. Bergner on her appointment.
