Project

Our preliminary goal is to develop and evaluate a method to improve the learning process. Our focus is set on the perception and the understanding of scientific communication and how to improve it. The plan is to create a tool for students of a TUM department to match students' personality traits, learning styles and the content of their courses/lectures in order to give personalized advice on the learning strategies helping them study as effectively as possible.

Current Status

Currently, our team is in the process of researching different aspects of studying such as learning styles, learning strategies and personality traits. We have found some instruments for each of these that we will look into further to see whether – and if so, how exactly – we could use these for our final product, a matching algorithm which gives students recommendations on how they could tackle specific subjects. We have created a plan which includes multiple steps of experiments containing questionnaires and tasks for participants. The gathered data will be used continuously to optimize our tool.
