Winter Term 2020/21

After a special summer term 2020, we are looking forward to the upcoming winter term 2020/21. The term will be organized in hybrid form, which means presence and online lectures will be combined and complementary.

We are happy to welcome Prof. Dr. Paula Guimarães (University of Lisbon, Portugal) who will be with us for the whole winter term by a DAAD guest professorship. She offers different seminars on Bachelor’s as well as Master’s level: „Rethinking the link between (adult) education and development“, „Discussing the shift from lifelong education to lifelong learning: international governmental organization’s contribution“ and „Debating adult learning and education research: a fragmented field of diverse theoretical and empirical approaches“.

In addition, we are glad to welcome back Prof. Dr. Dr. Heribert Hinzen (DVV International). He offers the seminar „CONFINTEA VII – On the Way to the International Conference on Adult Learning and Education in Morocco in 2022” on Master’s level as an intensive course on two weekends.

From 6. October 2020 - 17. November 2020 you are invited to participate in an online-seminar on "Contemporary issues on adult education from Nigerian an German perspectives".

Furthermore, we appreciate Dr. Shalini Singh (International Institute for Adult and Lifelong Education, New Delhi), who will again offer a seminar at the professorship for adult and continuing education: „Adult Education, Adult Learning and Lifelong Learning Policies across the Globe“.

From February 1st to February 12th 2021, the eighth Adult Education Academy will take place, led by Clara Kuhlen. We’re looking forward to an interesting international conversation. More information on the programme can be found on the Adult Education Academy’s website.

Like in past semesters, we kindly invite you to numerous guest lectures, which will be soon announced on our website. They cover a variety of subject areas and promise exciting insights on adult education and lifelong learning.

GSiK acknowledges all international events.

Bachelor, Master and Ph.D. students are invited to complete a study term abroad in one of our exchange universities and can apply for a scholarship. Newly, there is the possibility to apply for an internship abroad at DVV International and their partner organisations in Georgia and in the Palestinian territories. More information can be found on “Studying abroad”.

We are looking forward to an exciting and successful winter term 2020/21!
