LIfBi Director Cordula Artelt elected as new member of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences and Humanities

5/2/2022

The Director of the Bamberg Leibniz Institute for Educational Trajectories (LIfBi), Prof. Dr. Cordula Artelt, has been elected as a new member of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences and Humanities (BAdW). This recognizes her as one of nine new Bavarian academics who have contributed to a significant expansion of knowledge in their respective fields.

 

"Being accepted into the Bavarian Academy of Sciences and Humanities is a special honour," says Cordula Artelt. "I am very much looking forward to the exchange in the Bavarian community of researchers and to the shaping opportunities that the academy has as a research institution."

With her election, Prof. Dr Cordula Artelt, Director of the Leibniz Institute for Educational Trajectories and Chair of the Departement Longitudinal Educational Research at the Otto Friedrich University of Bamberg, is now one of around 200 full members of the Academy. Her research focuses on reading competence and text comprehension with multiple documents, digital and data-related competences as well as metacognition and self-regulated learning.

The Bavarian Academy of Sciences and Humanities was founded in 1759 and functions as a non-university research institution and community of researchers. As the largest of a total of eight German state academies, it represents a place of dialogue between science and society. It creates an interdisciplinary forum for scientists in which synergy effects and networks generate impulses for new research questions. The subjects represented within BAdW cover the entire spectrum of science: Its members conduct research in the humanities and cultural sciences, law, social sciences and economics, natural and technical sciences and mathematics, as well as natural and food sciences and medicine.
