Lehramt Modules in the Fall 2014/15

As Englisch Lehramt transitions from the BA/MA system to the Staatsexamen, American Studies Leipzig will offer both American Studies Lehramt modules *-1401 and *-2401 in both the Fall Term of 2014/15 and the Summer Term of 2015. In both semesters, the modules will be offered with limited capacity, and you are accordingly asked to enroll this term already if your schedule permits.


Teachers Shared Their Experiences With New Media in the Classroom

On May 15, ASL's Teaching America Project was very glad to host two teachers, Ms. Buhnar-Mittelstädt of the Gutenbergschule and Ms. Eder-Panev of the Karl-Heine-Schule. Both teachers who contribute to the Teaching America project on a regular basis provided a particularly enriching experience for our teaching training students attending ASL’s new seminar “Teaching America: E-Teaching, E-Learning and Best Practice.”
