Apart from writing and doing research, I particularly enjoy teaching, not least to pass on whatever I myself learned from my great teachers. I also enjoy the collaborative angle to this side of academia, both in terms of interacting with eager students and in co-teaching with interesting colleagues. Since 2007, I taught roughly 320 contact hours by offering the following classes:

In addition to these full classes, I also organized writing labs and fieldwork workshops together with colleagues, and taught select sessions in other courses (both in London, Marburg and elsewhere).

At King's, I act as personal tutor to about ten undergraduate students, examine and supervise about ten postgraduate dissertations every year. As senior tutor for postgraduates in the Department of International Development, I look after the psycho-social well-being of our Masters and PhD students.

Most of my own classes have been centrally evaluated by the university and genereally received good feedback. As a central objective in my teaching, I strive to encourage regular academic writing in peer groups, in order to strengthen students' analytical skills - and to break up the isolation of writing (more on academic writing in my blog).

Some of the materials I developed for teaching (in German, given that I wrote them during my time in Marburg) can be found below; please let me know if you find them useful (or not), especially if you are a student. Some more lecture notes (in English) are also tagged in my blog.
