Christina Steiner graduated from the University of Graz, Austria, in 2004 with a Magister in psychology. She received her Dr.rer.nat in 2012 with a thesis on ‚Concept mapping and competence-based knowledge spaces: Synergies for generating, validating, and applying knowledge representations’. Since 2004 she has been working at the Cognitive Science Section in several European projects on technology-enhanced learning (iClass, ELeGI, GRAPPLE, ImREAL, LEA’s BOX) and game-based learning (80Days, RAGE), and on digital libraries and digital preservation (CULTURA). The focus of her research is on the evaluation of learning and research environments, on self-regulated learning, on competence representation and structuring, as well as on psycho-pedagogical frameworks for adaptation in technology-enhanced and game-based learning. Further research interests include psychological aspects of user-interface design and human-computer interaction. As a member of the ISO committee PC288 and its WG1 she is involved in the development of an international standard for educational organization management systems.

Current projects: RAGE, S-HELP

Past projects: LEA’s BOX, ImREAL, CULTURA, GRAPPLE, ELeGI, 80Days, iClass
