Janina Täschner receives Young Scientist Award of the Division of Educational Psychology of the DGPs

Congratulations to our team member Janina Täschner for receiving the Young Investigator Award of the Division of Educational Psychology of the DGPs. She receives the award for the findings of her research synthesis Promoting Teacher Self-Efficacy.

In the course of the research synthesis Promoting Teacher Self-Efficacy, the laureate investigates how targeted measures can promote self-efficacy of teachers during the pre-service stage in their education. After all, well-developed self-efficacy not only makes teachers resilient in everyday school life, but also increases their job satisfaction in general. Janina Täschner's research findings provide new perspectives for making teacher training sustainable. Learn more about the research synthesis Promoting Teacher Self-Efficacy here.

The Division of Educational Psychology of the DGPs awards the Young Researcher Award every two years to young researchers before completing their doctorate who wish to present research results relevant to educational psychology at a conference and subsequently publish them. In the course of the award, they receive partial funding for a conference trip as well as support for the English-language revision of a manuscript.
