My teaching expertise is set on family business and entrepreneurship, theory of organizations and economic sociology, qualitative methods and digital data, social inequality and academic writing. I have thought courses in English and German at departments for management, for sociology, and for political sciences. I successfully participated in the TU's certificate program in online learning and regularly participate in teaching development workshops.  

 

Teaching Philosophy

As a teacher, I understand myself as companion in the cognitive, professional and societal development of my students. All of my courses implement five elements 1) excite curiosity 2) acquire knowledge 3) train analytic and methodological competence 4) develop an understanding for societal and economic expectations 5) offer freedom to unfold critical thinking. I combine interactive forms of learning (in particular group exercises, voting tools, research tasks) with sequences of well‐prepared and structured teacher‐centered teaching. I encourage my students to be actively involved in course discussions and design thereby leveraging the diversity of my students. I cultivate a productive discussion culture with clearly formulated feedback rules.

For my research-focused seminar on “Exit-Capitalism”, I have recently received our faculty’s outstanding teaching award (Faculty VI includes the departments for architecture, civil engineering, geo sciences, environmental planning, urban planning, ecology and sociology).
