Award-winning teaching within the ELLeN project

On July 1st, Assistant Prof. Dr. Carolyn Blume from TU Dortmund received the „IDEAward“ teaching award for her ELLeN-based seminar „Exploring Digitally-Mediated English Usage Among Neurodivergent Learners„. In this seminar, teacher education students interviewed neurodivergent individuals, practicing their research skills while also learning more about the language-learning related needs and experiences of autistic individuals and people with dyslexia and AD(H)D.

The seminar, which was co-taught with Dr. Judith Bündgens-Kosten from Goethe University Frankfurt, drew on input by all ELLeN participants, and featured guest lectures by Aleksander Knauerhase, as well as by Prof. Dr. Michelle Proyer and Prof. Dr. Geert Van Hove. In her acceptance remarks, Carolyn Blume explicitly thanked the many neurodivergent individuals who served as interviewees and who have made this seminar possible.
