Expertise: Didactical approaches

Annegret Pflugfelder from the University of Hohenheim (Germany) and Hans Ramseier from BFH HAFL (Switzerland) share their experiences in implementing a didactical format that combines (1) hands-on crop production from sowing to harvest with (2) gamification-competition and (3) learning about practical intricacies of productive, sustainable agriculture.
For many years, Logo e.V. has organised internships on German organic farms for students from countries of former Soviet Union. During the internships, the students can not only apply their theoretically acquired knowledge in practice and expand their practical skills, but at the same time learn intercultural skills and a new language. The internship is accompanied by several seminars and close supervision by the association and former interns.
Higher education has faced important teaching challenges in recent times, as it has delivered a widening range of courses to students of increasingly diverse backgrounds, expectations and levels of preparedness. These challenges call for a shift in teaching than offers more than simply incorporating remedial support within existing teaching programs.
