I already started teaching and training when I was involved in a youth group in Hannover, Germany where the topic was leadership for the group’s leaders. While attending university, I taught and designed programs for Siemens and Bosch-Siemens on a part-time basis. This interest in teaching has continued ever since and I’ve designed and implemented numerous courses for both national and international clients.
In terms of methods, I prefer pedagogical approaches that move students out of their comfort zone and encourage them to think and act on their own; students should train and challenge their own capabilities, verify their presumptions, and reflect on their own experiences.
More precisely, I utilize case studies, theoretical model building, practical deployment with different views and behaviors, interviews and media analysis, and meta description in my educational tool kit. Furthermore, I offer individual and team coaching for projects and new ventures as an additional support for students.
Currently, I also convert agile IT development procedures into teaching and training procedures, based on the idea of an agile model for agile universities. When it comes entrepreneurship, I prefer to co-operate hands on with respective or future entrepreneurs.
Permanent development at every age is my mission for learning content and methods.
