In concrete praxis I stand for:

  • In-depth-analysis and communication with a commitment
  • Orientation to the target audience and a language intelligible to all
  • Creativity and fantasy in learning processes
  • Questioning the ‘unquestionable truths’
  •  A good portion of humour as a resource to overcome resignation and silence
