News from the Institute and the University

Dr. Nadine Dittert is deputy professor for Didactics of Computer Science

My name is Nadine Dittert and I am happy to represent the Professorship of Didactics of Computer Science this summer and next winter semester! For me, computer science is lively, diverse and, above all, creative and 'tangible' and I like to share that with future teachers and computer science students.

In the "Child-Computer-Interaction" seminar, we develop our own haptic product for children, taking current research into account, and in this sense we 'do' computer science. In the basic courses on "Didactics of Computer Science" (I+II), methods and necessary knowledge for working with schoolchildren are also taught with a view to diversity, creativity and, wherever possible, "graspability".

My current research focuses on computer science education as part of education in the digitally networked world for everyone. In this sense, working in interdisciplinary contexts in computer science also plays a central role for me and I am looking forward to the exchange with the students and new colleagues. I am looking forward to an exciting year in Potsdam!

Dr. Michael Striewe is deputy professor of Software Engineering

My name is Michael Striewe. I am happy to represent the Professorship of Software Engineering in the summer semester 2022 and to be able to pass on my experience in the conception and architecture of software applications in teaching.

In addition to classic software engineering topics such as the formal specification and verification of applications and the use of design patterns in architectural design, I deal with application-oriented development of systems in the field of educational technology.

As a substitute professor, I offer the lectures "Software Engineering II" (Bachelor) and "Formal Methods in Software Engineering" (Master) in the summer semester.
