Prof. Dr. Ulrich Hoinkes
Prof. Dr. Ulrich Hoinkes is a creative thinker who launches innovative and interdisciplinary projects. For more than ten years Hoinkes holds a professorship in linguistics and didactics at the Romance Language Institute of the University of Kiel, Germany. In 2013 he started with his team the initiative ‘Viducation’, a video project as an innovative teaching and learning environment. Students are asked to produce small video productions about scientific relevant topics of the discipline. Seven years later the experiences and networking via workshops and talks led to further development: The project Ed-In-Mov results. Next to his focus on teaching and learning methods, Prof. Dr. Hoinkes conducts research on the Discursive (De)Construction of Anxiety Culture (DCAC), a multidisciplinary and international research project concerning social threats and public education.
