Dr. Katrin Wild

I studied KSM (the study of cultural modernity in language and literature as well as culture, art, textiles, media and business studies) for German, Danish and English in Denmark, Finland and Germany. 2011, I won the Hans-Eberhard Piepho Prize for ideas in communicative foreign language teaching for the project “the Danish language café“. I completed my doctorate on “pronunciation and music” in 2013 at the Europa-Universität Flensburg. Following several years of teaching German as a foreign and a second language respectively in Slovenia, the United Kingdom, Denmark and Germany, I trained future English teachers from 2011 to 2014 at the University College South Denmark. From 2014 to 2020, I was a fixed-term lecturer for German as a foreign and second language at the Bielefeld University. Currently, I work as a scientific coordinator of the “Partners in Mobility / international teaching" project at the Europa-Universität Flensburg. I also am an appointed assessor of the Danish Ministry of Higher Education and Science.

I am interested in: Simultaneous early learning of foreign languages, individual multilingualism, pronunciation acquisition and didactics, as well as internationalisation of teacher training programmes.
