👋 Hi, my name is Alexander and I am glad to welcome you to my personal website!
🏫 Since I was a child, computers are around me. After nine years of school education, I wanted to start a profession in that field. In my apprenticeship as a software developer, I learned a lot about software, technology, and people. I also realized that sharing my passion for computer science with others is highly motivating fulfilling for me and so I moved to my favorite city - Graz.
🎓 I started to study computer science and German language/literature to become a teacher. During this wonderful time, I got in contact with a lot of great and inspiring people. Together with these people I worked on various projects in the area of software development.
💻 While writing my Master’s thesis, I realized that I really enjoy developing new technologies that engage and support people in learning to program. So, I started a Ph.D. in Computer Science to make programming as easy and engaging as possible by designing new learning environments and analyzing learning data. My research mainly focuses on learning analytics, computer science education, and engaging learning technologies.
👨 Since always, teaching is a passion for me and so I started to teach in 2014. First, I took different courses at the Austrian Red Cross to become a lecturer and since then I held courses for paramedics and first aid. Teaching is just as much a central part of my everyday professional life as a University Assistant. I teach at the Graz University of Technology, FH Campus 02, and Pädagogische Hochschule Steiermark different courses in the area of programming, project management, learning technologies and markup languages.
