Ittel, Angela

Angela Ittel is a Full Professor of Educational Psychology at the Institute of Education in the Faculty of Human Science at the Institute of Technology in Berlin, Germany. After receiving a Master of Science Degree and a PhD in Developmental Psychology from the University of California at Santa Cruz, USA, she was a postdoctoral researcher at the Friedrich Schiller University in Jena, Germany and took on an assistant professorship at the Freie Unviersität Berlin, as well as visiting professorships in Berlin and Munich. Her work covers a wide range of issues related to psychosocial development and learning of adolescent boys and girls. In her STEM related research, she is interested in gender specific factors of (academic) interest development, gendered educational and occupational choices, and the development of teacher competencies. In her more applied work, she develops strategies schools and universities implement to foster STEM related interests and examines their effectiveness. She also conducts teacher trainings and workshops to communicate her work directly into teaching practice. Angela Ittel is currently Associate Editor for the International Journal of Developmental Science, and serves on several national and international review boards. Her latest STEM related publication, titled “Dealing with diversity in mathematics and science classes (in German: “Differenzierung im mathematisch-naturwissenschaftlichen Unterricht”), which she co-edited with her collaborator Rebecca Lazarides, was supported by the De Gruyter Foundation.
