LEAD Graduate School & Research Network

Malte Ring

Research Interest

I studied biology, political science and economy and educational theory for the teaching profession. Over the last year of my studies I was more and more interested in education related research and looked for opportunities to stay at the university (at least for a little while). This opportunity came in form of an interesting interdisciplinary research project of the Chair of Economic Education and Didactics of Biology at the University of Tübingen. The research project is focused on graphing ability or graph literacy in the context of sustainable development. The main research question is, how well students are able to read graphs and diagrams and how this skill can be improved.

The reason I wanted to be associated with LEAD is their interdisciplinary approach to school related research. I strongly believe that you need different viewpoints and methods to explain what´s going on in schools and other educational sites. I joined the LEAD network, because I see it as a chance to exchange ideas, discuss research processes, methods regarding education-related topics.
