Max Weber Programme

On the Humboldt exchange Eight Max Weber Fellows went to Humboldt University for a 10 day teaching practice visit, which was set up by agreement between the Max Weber Programme and the English Department of the Language Centre. The exchange took place from 21‒27 May 2011. The Fellows who went to to Humboldt were: Alexandre Afonso (SPS), Giulia Andrighetto (SPS), Elsie  Dermineur (HEC), Nathan Marcus (HEC), Yane Svetiev (LAW), Dean Vuletic (HEC) and Blaz Zakelj (ECO). The exchange was set up by the Max Weber Programme and Humboldt University, Berlin. The module had three components:

Matthew Hoelle, ECO Max Weber Fellow

Dean Vuletic, HEC Max Weber Fellow

• Class observation (prior to teaching): MWP Fellows observed the group to whom they would be giving a tutorial during a language class (English for Specific Purposes). The colleague teaching the class afterwards discussed all technical and other details of the tutorial to be taught by the Fellow. • Tutorial: three convenors observed the tutorial and gave feedback to the Fellow. The students filled out feedback forms which could be discussed in the feedback session. The tutorial and the feedback session were open to other Fellows. • Lecture: MWP Fellows gave an open undergraduate lecture in their own discipline. The convenors attended the lecture and there was a feedback session. The lecture and the feedback session were open to other Fellows. The Humboldt staff responsible for the organisation of the module were Connie Hacke and David Bowskill.
