Journ­al Club "Teach­ing dur­ing the lunch break"

Since the winter semester 2015/2016, lecturers from various subject areas have been discussing current academic publications on the topic of teaching.

Every month, a colleague presents a scientific publication (approx. 20 minutes) that has, for example, provided them with key new insights or advanced their own teaching. We discuss this publication and its implications.

Where: Kirschbaum room (room ME 0.114; entrance to the left of the Sparkasse, signposted from the cafeteria entrance)

When: Every first Tuesday of the month from 13-14 (during the lecture period)

All teaching staff at Paderborn University, university lecturers, research assistants, lecturers, etc. are cordially invited to attend. No obligation, no registration required and you are welcome to bring your own lunch.

From the winter semester 2019/2020, you can have your participation and the presentation of an article credited with 2-4 AE for the university didactics certificate programme.

Ifyou would like to present a publication, we would be delighted to hear from you - please send your proposal with the desired date to Nerea Vöing(nerea.voeing(at)uni-paderborn(dot)de).
