DeutschZusammen - GermanTogether.
In the School of Modern Languages and Cultures, we are interested in modelling new ways of working between secondary school teachers and university teachers and researchers. The DeutschZusammen project provides, in the first instance, non-hierarchical, mutually enriching meetings and dialogue between German practitioners in higher and secondary education. It aims to promote networking, resource and best practice sharing, and strategic planning, though also listening and mutual support, all with the aim of finding together ways of raising the profile of German language and culture in our education system and sustaining colleagues working in those environments.
DeutschZusammen aims, too, to be experimental and creative and to promote collaborative projects between the SMLC and secondary schools. It also aims to be practical, by developing and running events and programmes that show non-specialists, pupils, parents and students the practical, professional and strategic importance of teaching and learning German in schools and universities.
It is our aim to have series of meetings, ideally on a yearly or twice-yearly basis. Please read on below for more information about our first event, which ran on July 2, 2022. If you wish to be part of the project, please register your interest here.
We are running a programme of online and on campus events during the academic year 2022-23. Our next event is an online event on Wednesday 8th February for years 9-11, run by Frau Nora Michaelis, our DAAD Lektorin. The theme is Karneval! Find out more and register here!
