Hamburg Teaching Award 2017

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.

The award highlights a temporary point of culmination of a design-based research project, which started with the development of a completely new course design in 2012 and continued with the introduction of a blended learning scenario in 2014, the competency-based restructuring in 2014/15, the implementation of a dedicated website with video tutorials and the publication of a corresponding textbook and an e-book in 2016.

And yet, the ARAW story goes on. The ARAW team is preparing the next big step, which will be announced soon: Stay tuned!

Presentation on “Competency-based implementation of the ICM” @ Tag der Lehre und des Lernens 2014 – HAW Hamburg

Again, Stephan Beier and I had a slot at the “Tag der Lehre 2014″ at HAW Hamburg. We presented a case study on how to align the concept of competency-based education with the inverted classroom model.

Train ride with the “Dark Lord”

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.

Videos are available on YouTube:

@ Dark Lord: Thanks for the inspirational day!
