LEAD Graduate School & Research Network

Patricia Goldberg, M.A.

Research Interest

In my research, I am focusing on attentional processes in teacher-learner interaction. I am interested in how to measure cognitive engagement/ on-task behavior and how to use this information to improve teacher training and classroom instruction.

The program of LEAD Graduate School provides the best possible conditions for this aim, as LEAD has the necessary technical resources and provides great supportive structures for high quality empirical research. The highly interdisciplinary and international network, as well as an excellent supervision and mentoring team enable me to pursue my research goals.
