A professor at the RWTH-University Aachen in Germany, Marold's expertise in research and teaching delivers internationally acclaimed teaching and publications in the areas of:
  • learning and assessment
  • research methods
  • motivational and emotional processes,
  • collaborative learning in face to face and online settings and learning environments
The aim of the seminar is to present the development of a comprehensive framework for personal goals in social learning contexts. Individual goals are assumed to play a major role in engagement, learning and achievement. The growing shift in educational psychology research towards conceptualisations of learning and motivation as situated, social and dynamic has highlighted major limitations in conceptualising goals as relatively stable and as dominantly focused on the pursuit of achievement. The results from several field studies conducted with German and Australian students involved in group learning activities will be presented to illustrate the framework.
