Michael Rücker received his Master's degree in Education from Humboldt-Universität in Spring 2014. His teaching subjects are Computer Science and English. His Bachelor's thesis explores a task-based approach to teaching introductory programming at shools, for which he transfered concepts from English to computer science education. His Master's thesis proposes and evaluates a spiral curriculum for teaching Petri Nets at German secondary schools.
