LEAD Graduate School & Research Network

Salome Wagner

Being able to argue well and write understandable, cohesive texts is an important skill that students in particular need on a daily basis in their studies. Nevertheless, empirical research suggested that students often face difficulties in providing locally and globally cohesive texts. So, in my PhD research I am dealing with the question of how the competence of students to write argumentative texts can be improved.  Therefore, I investigate different types of computer-based feedback and their benefits for students and their learning process. I examine the synergy and interaction effects of computer-based feedback and prior strategy instruction in the form of video modeling examples on student’s cohesive writing.

In general, the overarching research question I constantly think about is: How can teaching quality be improved? This is also one of the key questions of the LEAD Graduate School & Research Network. I believe that through constant international exchange and cooperation between different disciplines, the LEAD network is an ideal platform for constantly finding new answers to this question and improving education on a scientific and practical level.

As an associated member of the LEAD Graduate School & Research Network I can greatly benefit from the personal and professional experiences of other PhD students, scientists and experts. Furthermore, especially the supervision and mentoring programs for doctoral students can enrich my work.
