Welcome to the
Knowledge Media Research Center!
Knowledge acquisition, knowledge exchange, and knowledge communication using innovative technologies form the core of the research topics at the Knowledge Media Research Center in Tuebingen. Our researchers are concerned with classic forms of teaching and education in schools and higher education, as well as with promoting learning in informal settings, such as in museums, the internet, and the work place.
At the KMRC, our multidisciplinary team of highly trained scientists from cognitive and educational sciences, human behavioral sciences, and social sciences works closely with experts from media technology and computer science. By collaborating with public and private institutions and by transferring research results into real world applications, the institute makes a substantial contribution to enabling innovative media-based teaching and learning scenarios.
On our website you will find further insights into our organizational structure and the research conducted at the institute.
