Teacher Training Programme for Academics


In cooperation with Prof. Beate Kowalski and the University of Sankt Augustin, the MWI offers a Teacher Training Program for Academics. It is a reality that many PhD students at European universities are not involved in teaching. But many of them have to teach when they return to their home countries. The workshop originated from the request of a PhD student who studied in Europe and should teach in her homeland in India. But she realized that she was not prepared for it. With no or insufficient preparation for teaching, with limited material, with additional gender issues, she had to rely on her own creativity to live up to expectations. In this context, Prof. Kowalski has designed a program that addresses this issue by offering academic support.

Workshops are regularly held in cooperation with various partners (Pontifical Biblical Institute in Rome, UISG or other Roman universities, Philosophical-Theological University of St. Augustine); Inquiries for workshops are also available from African and Asian countries. Missio Aachen will also support the project.

They were developed by the research group "Intercultural Teaching". The course language will be English.

The workshop's program is based on the idea that teaching is an ongoing dynamic learning process based on teaching-learning experiences, reflections and evaluations leading to better teaching. The program also takes into account the contextual and intercultural dimension of teaching.
A workshop takes place from 3.-5. June 2019 at the Phil. Theol. College SVD Sankt Augustin. The language of the workshop will be German or English. The number of participants is limited to 30. AMP scholarship holders are cordially invited to the workshop. Please register until 10th May at harald.suermann@mwi-aachen.org.
