Together with Fabian Frielitz, I was awarded the Hamburg Teaching Award 2017 (Hamburger Lehrpreis 2017) for our team teaching efforts in the context of the course “Academic research and writing” (ARAW), which forms part of the degree programme “Foreign Trade / International Management (B.Sc.)” at HAW Hamburg – Hamburg University of Applied Sciences.
First and foremost, I would like to thank my students for the nomination: I feel deeply honoured by your sympathy.
Furthermore, I would like to express my gratitude to my two academic tutors Dawid Szmigielski and Serhat Akkaya as well as to our librarian Detlev Dannenberg for constantly supporting the course. You would have deserved the price as much as we do.
Last but not least, I would like to thank Rita Werner and Stephan Beier for their ongoing support of the ARAW project.
On my way to Hamburg, I met Christian Spannagel (aka Dunkelmunkel) at Frankfurt main station. Although not knowing each other personally, we both realised that we were heading towards the same pre-conference workshop at HAW Hamburg: He as presenter and I as participant. 🙂
On board of the train, we had a good conversation with respect to educational media scenarios, which was continued when Stephan Beier was joining us for sushi and beer in the evening.
