About Ingrid Scharlau

My work focuses on basic research, and I particularly enjoy working in interdisciplinary contexts. I am trained in the dsiciplines of psychology, philosophy, and education. I use both quantitative (experimental psychology, modeling) and qualitative methods (metaphor research) and also work on questions of history and theory of psychology.

Additional Activities

I run the Writing Center at the University of Paderborn, which supports students in academic writing (and staf in teaching writing).

In addition, I offer workshops and lectures on higher education didactics. Among them are the following topics:

Dealing with plagiarism - Teaching attitudes toward scholarly writing and reading. 
    Reading scientific texts with students
    Giving feedback on student texts
    Writing in the dsiciplines
    Dealing with peer reviews
    Reflecting and designing teaching with metaphors

All workshops are offered for a wide variety of disciplines (and gladly together for different disciplines) and are designed to be discipline-sensitive.

Outreach

In the field of transfer, my current focus is on further training for psychology teachers and the development of teaching materials for psychology classes at schools.

Further Information

Graduiertenförderung

Seit 2008 engagiere ich mich stark in der Betreuung von Early Career Researchers. So habe ich an der Universität Paderborn ein Mentoring-Programm für Doktorandinnen und ein Peer-Mentoring für promotionsinteressierte Studentinnen aufgebaut. Mit den jährlichen Schreibzeiten, die ich gemeinsam mit den Schreibzentren der Universität Paderborn und der Universität Bielefeld organisiere, unterstütze ich Frauen in der Promotionsphase. Seit 2019 organisiere ich gemeinsam mit Tobias Jenert (Universität Paderborn) und Carla Bohndick (Universität Hamburg) die interdisziplinäre und internationale Summer School Higher Education Research (HoBid). Im SFB TRR318 "Constructing Explainability" leite ich das integrierte Graduiertenkolleg.

Nice things and oddities

I was born in 1967, have a daughter and live in the almost northern part of southern East Westphalia, that is, in the middle of the world, though deep in the countryside. I am involved in the preservation of rural areas and the Interessengemeinschaft Bauernhaus. I love Jane Austen und Herman Melville and often wonder why, try to smuggle quotes of them into documents of any kind and try to promote the appreciation of nonsense within academia. If I had more time, I would spend it spinning and weaving. And reading.
