Anja Augsdörfer has submitted her cumulative dissertation entitled “Promoting the Situation-Specific Lesson Planning and Coaching Skills of Prospective Teachers and Mentors in Vocational Education: a Video-Based Intervention Study” and passed her oral defense with high distinction on 28. February 2019 under my supervision. She has thus been the first doctoral candidate from the state-funded project “Professional teachers’ actions to promote subject-based learning under changing social conditions (ProfaLe)” to complete her doctorate and will start the first ever Joint Postdoc-Position at Universität Hamburg and Macquarie University on 01. April 2019.
Anja made the necessary contacts during a short research stay at Macquarie University in the course of her doctoral project and decided to move back to Australia to work on a project focusing on “Computational Thinking Pedagogies” together with Associate Professor Matt Bower. The Joint Postdoc position has been newly created under the umbrella of the strategic partnership between Hamburg and Macquarie for this purpose.
We wish you all the best for your stay in Sydney and look forward to welcoming you back in Hamburg!
Besides different preconditions for educational success in native and migrant families, an important role has been ascribed to students’ educational aspirations in the explanation of ethnic disparities in educational attainment. Based on a sample of several hundred 9th and 10th graders in Hamburg, the study investigates the dimensions along which native and migrant students construct their educational and future career aspirations and expectations at the end of compulsory full-time education. The results provide insight into the applicability of traditional approaches that investigate the mechanisms that shape social disparities in education to explain the ethnic attainment gap, and into the controversial meaning of subjective data in the form of respondent-reported educational aspirations and the interpretation of higher aspirations in migrant families as secondary effects of ethnic origin.
