E-learning and blended learning are an important part of my teaching activities. I am currently designing several digital learning materials — some for my seminars, and some for all students in the linguistic study programs at HHU Düsseldorf.
From April 2021 to March 2022, I was the e-learning coordinator of the Institute for Romance Studies.
In July 2021, the „eLearning-Förderfonds“ of HHU granted me funding (€ 12,460) for student assistants for two projects, originally planned to produce materials in Romance linguistics. In April 2022, the two projects were combined and switched to producing materials for teaching in linguistic typology instead. Jessica Schamne and I worked on educational podcasts about several fundamental and methodological topics in typology. In August 2022, Gilian Schöneich joined our team and we extended our work to producing video tutorials. The project ended recently, and the materials are ready for use in B.A. classes in the area of linguistic typology.
In February 2021, the „eLearning-Förderfonds“ of HHU granted me funding (€ 8,800) for student assistants and software for my project eLearning im Basismodul Sprachwissenschaft: Digitale Materialien für Grundwissenserwerb und Vertiefung. The project develops and produces videos, digital training modules, exercises and a glossary for the introductory courses in Romance linguistics. My research assistant Lukas Ostrowski and I laid the foundation for the materials until March 2022. In April 2022, Stephanie Fuchs (Institute for Romance Studies, HHU) took over the responsibility for this project.
In July 2020, the „eLearning-Förderfonds“ of HHU granted me funding (€ 7,800) for student assistants for my project Analyse und Aufbereitung von Sprachdaten: ILIAS-Lernraum für linguistische Methoden. Supported by my student assistants Jessica Schamne and Markus Jussli, I developed a learning platform for methods of linguistic analysis like morpheme segmentation and glossing.
