Sina Fackler

Sina first joined the Department of Education in 2012 for her M.Sc. in Educational Research Methods and Design and again in 2014 as a doctoral researcher.

During her doctorate, she is exploring the concept of Teacher self-efficacy in OECD-countries

Prior to her doctorate, she studied Education and Communication Sciences at the Ludwig-Maximilians-University of Munich and graduated in 2011 with a B.A. During her studies, she was working as a student research assistant in several research projects as well as a general research assistant at the Chair of General Education and Educational Research. There, she was involved in various stages of the research process, including data-analysis, data-management, project management and organising meetings and conferences. Sina also tutored research methods and basic statistics to undergraduate students.

Between her B.A. and M.Sc. degree, she was working as a research assistant investigating chances and limitations of networking among educational institutions for enhancing educational success in a deprived area in western Germany.

Apart from doing research, she also worked in corporate communications and journalism.
