Webinar information

In this webinar, we discuss the latest research and explore practical solutions for implementing eye tracking technology in the classroom. Our expert panel of researchers will share their experiences and insights on using eye tracking to enhance STEM learning outcomes.

Hear an engaging and informative discussion on how eye tracking can help revolutionize STEM education by creating more engaging and effective learning environments.

The talks

Stationary eye tracking in classroom settings: Application areas and first results

Speaker: Dr. Stefan Küchemann

In empirical research in education, stationary eye tracking solutions are mainly used in well-controlled laboratory studies whereas mobile eye trackers are very suitable in real dynamic environments such as classrooms. However, in various classroom settings students solve problems or learn independently, e.g., when working with an exercise sheet or textbook, where stationary eye trackers are preferred. In this talk, we discuss application areas, design criteria and first results of a stationary eye tracking study in a classroom setting.

The Regensburg Eye Tracking Classroom

Speakers: Dr. Jürgen Mottok, Lisa Grabinger, Florian Hauser, and Timur Ezer

The Regensburg Eye Tracking Classroom was established in 2018 by the Laboratory for Safe and Secure Systems (LaS³) at OTH Regensburg using funds from the FHInvest project "Eyes on Future". The classroom is operated in cooperation with the the University of Regensburg. Primarily, it is used to study eye movements in different areas of software engineering. In addition, LaS³ also offers various courses in bachelor and master education on the topic of eye tracking and already makes this technology accessible to students.

    Dr. Stefan Küchemann

    LMU MUNICH, PHYSICS EDUCATION

    Since mid-2022, Dr. Küchemann has been a group leader for AI in Physics Education at the Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich. In his group, he uses stationary and mobile eye-tracking solutions to understand students' learning and problem-solving processes in physics.

  • Tobii speaker Jürgen Mottok

    Prof. Dr. Jürgen Mottok

    OTH Regensburg, Computer Science

    Prof. Dr. Jürgen Mottok has been a professor of computer science since 2004 and a research professor for "Safe and Secure software-intensive Systems" at OTH Regensburg since 2017. He teaches fundamental courses in software engineering and programming languages, as well as specialized courses in functional safety, IT security (with applied cryptography), and reliability. His methodological expertise lies in the integration of application-oriented research with teaching in activating learning formats. He leads the Software Engineering Laboratory for Safe and Secure Systems (LaS³), where numerous research projects and academic educational biographies are conducted. Prof. Dr. Jürgen Mottok is a member of the board of the IT Security Cluster and organizer of the technical didactics working group on Software Engineering at Bavarian universities. He is also a member of the program committees of numerous scientific conferences and has received awards for his outstanding teaching and collaboration between business and academia. Five of his former doctoral students have since become professors themselves.
