Model for Hybrid Teaching (HyTea) (2022 - 2025)

HyTea ( is my first project as a PI. HyTea is a collaborative project funded by the German Ministry of Education (BMBF) between DIPF and Cologne Game Lab that aims to design a multimodal tutor for training presentation skills using artificial intelligence (AI) and immersive technologies. The project also addresses the alignment problem of AI systems, which refers to the importance of designing AI systems that align with human values. The project started in September 2022 and runs for three years.

In the HyTea project, we are redesigning the Presentation Trainer focusing on the presentation content preparation skills and on training non-verbal aspects (gestures, body positions, engagement with audience etc.)
