This blog has started in 2012 as a part of the Global Perspectives Programme, a cooperation between the University of Basel and Virginia Tech. This programme invites doctoral candidates and postdoctoral researchers of all fields to learn about trends in Global Higher Education and Research and to broaden their understanding of career developments in the international academic arena.
After the blog has fallen asleep in 2013, I decided to revive it. I will regularily post about academia and higher education, especially about academic teaching and learning. Texts will be in english and german, depending on the topic.
