University of St. Gallen, Switzerland and Stanford University,United States (visiting researcher for 2006). Over the last few years I gained various experiences as a responsible human resources assistant as well as a teacher in vocational schools and a lecturer in adult education. Beyond that I have gathered both research- and practically-oriented experiences at various European universities. Since 2003 I am a doctoral candidate at the Institute of Business Education and Educational Management, University of St. Gallen, Switzerland. Until December 2005 I worked as a research associate and lecturer at the University of Oldenburg, Germany, while at the same time engaging in my commitment as a scientific assistant at the University of St. Gallen, Switzerland. Currently I am a visiting researcher at the Stanford University School of Education, because I was awarded with a fellowship by the Swiss National Science Foundation. My main research interests and experiences are in the fields of technology enhanced pedagogy in higher education and (qualitative) research methods. The last two years I have developed content for an online database which provides useful teaching materials for teachers of economics at school (e.g., lessons, information about action-orientated teaching methods). I was also in charge of improving the quality of the teacher education programme at the University of Oldenburg, Germany. Moreover, I have gained various experience as a lecturer in the fields of teacher education and training.
