About me

My name is Christian Burkhart and I am a research assistant and PhD student at the Institute for Educational Science in Freiburg im Breisgau. I have studied Instructional Design (B.A.) and Educational Science (M.A.) and am currently trying to complete my PhD until 2019. As a researcher I am interested in automated computer-based feedback to improve students' cohesive writing. As a teacher, I have given courses on cognition, statistics, e-learning, and educational systems. I love to analyze data, the statistical programming language R, web programming, reading, and sports.

I live in Freiburg im Breisgau.
