Prof. Katharina Scheiter is head of the Multiple Representations Lab at the Leibniz-Institut für Wissensmedien and full professor for Empirical Research on Learning and Instruction at the University of Tübingen in Germany. Together with her research group, she investigates cognitive processes underlying learning from multiple representations as well as means of supporting these processes. Results from this research are used to design digital textbooks and tablet-based applications for education. Eye tracking constitutes one of the main approaches to studying processes in learning from multiple representations and designing gaze-based interventions. In 2016, she obtained funding to establish the Tübingen Digital Classroom Laboratory (TüDiLab), which is a classroom equipped with 30 remote 250 Hz eye trackers to conduct multi-station studies at a large scale.
