My teaching expertise is set on theory of organizations and entrepreneurship, qualitative methods, social inequality and academic writing. I have thought courses in English and German at departments for management, for sociology, and for international relations online. I regularly participate in teaching development Workshops such as "Syllabus and Course Design", "Working with Student Writing", and "Online Teaching".

 

Teaching Philosophy

As lecturer I strive to accompany my students in their cognitive, personal and social development. In each of my Courses I integrate five elements: (1) excite curiosity, (2) impart knowledge, (3) train analytical and methodological competence, (4) develop an understanding for social challenges and career expectations, and (5) offer room for thought and actions. To implement these elements I combine interactive forms of learning (e.g. group work, voting tools, research tasks) with well-prepared and structured sequences of teacher-centered teaching. I give my students credit to engage in class discussions and course design thereby drawing upon the potentials of their diversity. I cultivate a productive, and discursive class culture and with explicit feedback rules.
