Mittman, Elizabeth; Santos, Krsna – Unterrichtspraxis/Teaching German, 2019
Graduate education in the humanities struggles with weighty traditions, constrained (fiscal) resources, and a legacy of elitism and cultural homogeneity.

DiBiase-Lubrano, Mary Jo – Unterrichtspraxis/Teaching German, 2018
Language testing is an integral part of teaching and learning, yet most language faculty do not receive adequate training for developing tests (Taylor, [Taylor, L., 2009]). Most have advanced degrees in literary and cultural studies in the target language but often have insufficient training in pedagogy and assessment. This shortcoming is alarming…

Donahue, William Collins – Unterrichtspraxis/Teaching German, 2008
Teaching '68 presents pedagogical challenges far greater than assembling a set of workable classroom materials. Divisive controversies that were the hallmark of the time--e.g., the debate over the nature and appropriate use of violence--are with us still, though in a somewhat different form. Further, the instructor's own politics and positionality…

Streitwieser, Bernhard; Leephaibul, Robin – Unterrichtspraxis/Teaching German, 2007
Research opportunities for undergraduates in the social sciences remain relatively rare. If they exist at all they are usually in the natural sciences and engineering. In study abroad the situation is particularly pronounced: a semester or year abroad is still more a time for cultural and linguistic immersion than it is for building specific…

This paper explores some common theoretical insights from the fields…
