Marion Scholz studied computer science at the Vienna University of Technology and at the University of Vienna. Since 2007 she teaches object-oriented modeling to first year bachelor students studying computer science and business informatics. As a senior lecturer, her research interests are new teaching methods with a strong focus on e-learning technologies. One of her main challenges is raising the quality of teaching despite large numbers of students.
