Fifth AIM student poster research conference on “Risk, crisis and catastrophe management”

On Wednesday, 21 June 2017, the fifth AIM student poster research conference  took place at HAW Hamburg. 28 junior researchers enrolled in the degree programme Foreign Trade/International Management (B. Sc.) presented their research work.

The general topic of the semester was “Risk, crisis and catastrophe management”. Individual topics addressed a diverse set of aspects (e.g. country risk, kidnapping, piracy, hurricane, compliance, telemedicine, forensics and cyber crime). The instructors awarded Claudia Lange, Rebecca Sabrowsky, Antonio Petrovic and Christian Rohde with the instructor’s best poster award.

The posters were developed in the context of the course “Academic research and writing“. Coursework was organised by way of team teaching undertaken by Dr. Fabian Frielitz, our librarian Detlev Dannenberg and me as well as my student assistants Dawid Szmigielski and Serhat Akkaya.

The conference was framed by a keynote speech on “Global Existential Risks” that was delivered by Dr. Andreas Martin Lisewski, Scientific Fellow, Life Sciences & Chemistry, Jacobs University Bremen. Attendees received an insightful and entertaining presentation from the perspective of a natural scientist, which was followed by a brief discussion of selected issues.

@ Martin: 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.
