On January 22, the first PhD thesis in the second group was defended successfully by Maria Wirzberger, now employed as postdoctoral researcher at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems in Tübingen. Her thesis on Load-inducing factors in instructional design: Process-related advances in theory and assessment introduces a novel perspective on the interplay of cognitive load facets in learning scenarios. Among its core characteristics, it connects human behavioral experiments with computational cognitive modeling.

After an insightful talk that also involved an outlook to the broader research vision, the dissertation committee raised a variety of interesting questions that resulted in a lively discussion. The excellent result in the end emphasized that Maria had done a great job!
