SANDD Sub-Saharan Africa DaF digital network

Overview

In many sub-Saharan African countries, learning German is shaped by the colonial past, multilingualism in everyday life and post-colonial monolingualism in the school system as well as political influences from Germany, currently primarily the aim of recruiting skilled labour. Together with partners in Augsburg, Kara, Windhoek and Namibia, the project team is investigating various issues in this field, which focus on attitudes and beliefs, teaching design and the professionalisation of teachers.

In this context, a digital platform is being developed that bundles professionalisation offers and makes them visible.
