Workshops for Academic staff & university teachers 
-- Didactical Workshops for university members, starting in 2008 --

Since in 2008, I to give workshops and offer continuing education for academic staff, university teachers and professors of different disciplines (e.g., in Math education, Social Sciences, Architecture, Physics, Languages)  started at TU Dortmund university.

Such 2-days workshops embraced in particular topics like

  • "Web 2.0, Social Media, eLearning and Co. in teaching and learning at universities" and
  • "how to teach creativity in different disciplines" (together with Tobias Haertel, TU Dortmund).
  • 15 interdisciplinary workshops across all disciplines

I also held those workshops at the universities of Trier, Münster and Cologne. In 2011, I  organized workshops at TU Berlin university, University of Jena and Thueringen ("HIT" initiative).

I enable learning where Interdiscinplinary and subject-oriented didactical approaches can learn from each other (Jahnke & Wildt, 2011, edited book in German).
