Dr Margit Messmer


My research background is in mathematical logic, in particular the model theory of fields.
Now my interests lie in student education, in particular in pratical new approaches to teaching in a learning environment dominated by the internet. I like to explore how new technologies can support learning, and have introduced ‘flipped classroom’ methods and online learning and assessment components.
