About

I work since 2004 at the Language Centre of the  Freie Universität Berlin as a  lecturer for French.  After having participated to the implementation of the “Espace Français” within the Independent Language Learning centre, my activities are now  focussed on teaching French for Bachelor and Master students, developing learning activities and e-learning projects.

My intention is to empower learners and make them feel confident about what they can do. I see myself as a learning coach and a learning facilitator.

In 2011, the e-learning project SUCCEDO which I have conducted with A. Debeuckelaere  has been awarded  FU E-learning Preis 2010  in the category  “Good-practice Beispield für E-Learning / Blended-Learning Szenarien in der Lehre”.

Under the auspices of the CEL/ELC I have participated to  the european project MOLAN – Network for the exchange of information about good practices that serve to motivate language learners. 

I am currently involved in the  LINCQ (Languages in Corporate Quality)  project, which is funded by the  CELV/ECML (Centre Européen pour les Langues Vivantes)  in the framework of the 2012-2015 programme  Learning through languages. Promoting inclusive, plurilingual and intercultural  education.
