Gamification and Legal History Teaching

Join us for an engaging live interview as we delve into the fascinating intersection of gamification and legal history teaching! Our guest will be Alec Thompson, a legal historian, law supervisor, and instructor at the University of Cambridge. He is right now a visiting scholar at the University of Tokyo.

Our guest was Alec Thompson, a legal historian, law supervisor, and instructor at the University of Cambridge. He is interested in the art of incorporating games into his teaching methodologies, both in traditional classroom settings and online platforms. By leveraging the power of games, he has successfully created immersive and interactive learning experiences for his students. During the interview, we explored the ways of teaching law and legal history including how games can be used to make complex concepts more accessible and enjoyable.

Von China Erzählen. Eine historische Aufgabe?

Es wird derzeit viel über die vermeintlich „richtige“ China-Strategie diskutiert. Dabei neigt das in Europa und den USA praktizierte China-Bild teils zu extremer Vereinfachung der historischen Gegebenheiten von Chinas atemberaubenden Wandel. Einigkeit besteht, dass wir „mehr“ China-Kompetenz benötigen. Welches Wissen diese aber konkret beinhaltet, und wie wir von China erzählen sollten, sind Fragen, die wir uns nicht nur als Wissenschaftlerinnen und Wissenschaftler und noch dazu auf allen Ebenen des gesellschaftlichen Lebens stellen müssen.

Polyphonic Museums, Virtuality, and Divergent Memories. A coffee with Vladimir Montaña to talk about creative research
