Prof. Dr. Dr. Christof Arn wrote his PhD-Thesis on transfer from theory into practice in case of ethics. Since then he has worked as an ethics expert for many hospitals, clinics and other organizations. In a cooperation with the University of Applied Sciences of Northeastern Switzerland he has developed and co-led a major curriculum on ethics in organizations. That way he developed his passion for education. From 2010 to 2018 he ran the Center for Learning and Teaching at the University of Applied Sciences in Lucerne. During this time he lighted on "agile teching", tested and discussed this point of view and finally tought it as a concept of education. His book on agile teaching in higher educaton ("Agile Hochschuldidaktik", Beltz-Junventa) combines theory and practice, as he always likes both in combination. He's now self-employed as ethicist and learning and teaching expert for many universities. (www.ethikprojekte.ch | www.agiledidaktik.ch). His hobbies are playing senior soccer, art, linux and coding.
Keynote: From Agile Software Development to Agile Teaching: educational forms and methods in times of digital transformation
Agileness feels like the opposite of teaching. If we really want to prepare our students for the VUCA-World, the two should intermingle. Agile Software Development may inspire: Agile teaching is possible! It is the new and future paradigm (which should not replace the current paradigm of detailed planed teaching, but see it as sparring partner). Well: Simply said, not easily done. Therefore: Come to this keynote speech to find out how to start your first experiments with this teaching practice. Or, if you are already practicing it, to find out what could be your next steps to achieve mastery in #agileteaching.
