Through teaching, theoretical and empirical work should come to life as intrinsically logical, but at the same time connected fields. Furthermore, I consider it important to establish links to neighbouring disciplines (psychology, history, sociology) but also to more distant fields of research that are increasingly concerned with communicative subjects (human-computer interaction, human-robot interaction).
The central concern of this combination of object-oriented teaching and fundamental theoretical questions is to further develop students‘ ability to work and research independently and to apply this potential to new objects. Against the background of my experiences in interdisciplinary contexts, as an opportunity for further development.
Regardless of the concrete forms of teaching, a basic feature of my university teaching is to build up an open and communicative relationship with the students. My goal is to create an atmosphere and attitude that is characterized by curiosity and interest even when dealing with challenging topics or texts. Such an attitude also includes encouraging students to start own empirical work. Despite all the effort, this will result in surprisingly good work early on.
In order to encourage such developments, I continuously work with colleagues on projects and teaching formats that support the scientific work of students and young scientists. These include integrated teaching research projects such as „Media and Refugees“ (2015-17) or „HCI in the Wild“ (2017-18) for whose conception and integration into the curriculum I received the Teaching Award of the Saxonian State in 2016 together with Dr. Vivien Sommer. Furthermore, the development of new working and presentation formats of scientific analysis, like blogs (2013) and podcasts (2017/18), is a central topic of my teaching.

I teached a total of 16 courses in more than 10 different study programms (bachelor and master) for 5 different academic institutions in Germany and Canada. Thereby, I planned and held lectures (2 weekly hours total), seminars (16 weekly hours), semester projects (20 weekly hours) and tutorials (14 weekly hours).
