On Wednesday, 20 June 2018, the seventh AIM student poster research conference took place at HAW Hamburg. 21 junior researchers enrolled in the degree programme Foreign Trade/International Management (B. Sc.) presented their research work.
The general topic of the semester was “International Corporate Governance – A Transatlantic Perspective”. As always, individual topics addressed a diverse set of aspects. The instructors awarded Natalie C. Klein, Natalie Mielczarek, Vanessa Mielczarek and Lars J. P. Kamm with the instructor’s best poster award. Additionally, students voted for the students’ best poster award, which was awarded to Natalie Mielczarek, Vanessa Mielczarek and Lars J. P. Kamm as well.
The posters were developed in the context of the course “Academic research and writing“. Coursework was organised by way of team teaching undertaken by our librarian Detlev Dannenberg, Prof. Dr. Michael Gille, student assistants Dawid Szmigielski and Serhat Akkaya as well as me. Graduate student Philipp Schenk helped to organise the conference.
Dr. jur. Carsten Jungmann, Programme Director Law, Bucerius Law School, Hamburg and Chief Legal Officer, Birkenstock Group, Neustadt (Wied) delivered a keynote speech on “Liability of Board Members for Business Judgements”. Attendees received an enlightening presentation enriched with stochastic reflections from the perspective of a legal scholar and practitioner. The speech was followed by a lively discussion of selected issues.
@ Dr. Jungmann: Thank you very much for visiting us!
The teaching concept is based on blended learning and research-based learning. The course is modelled around the concept of Universal Design for Learning (UDL). Students are provided with various access points to the course contents, which can be combined or used on a standalone basis: learning videos, textbook, webinars, library excursions, tutorials, walk-in labs and poster labs support individual learning styles.
