Archive Part Online Courses 2020

Dear Participants, Lecturers, and Friends of the Summer Universities 2020,

we look back on exciting months full of new intensive experiences: The 12th Ingenieurinnen-Sommeruni went online! From July to Oktober 2020 some 50 courses got lots of applaus from student participants nearby and far away.

The International Summer University for Women in Engineering at Bremen University switched to flexible online teaching in 2020 and the echos of participants were enormous. More than 230 students took part in courses, and were happy about online exchange, talks and discussions.

Our thanks…
As organizing team we thank our fantastic lecturers – the new as well as the familiar – for the exciting, personal and compact teaching.

Many thanks also to all the participants for active participation, discussions, comments and criticism, networking and collegiality. A big ‘Thanks’ goes to those, who for different reasons, would never have been able to travel to Bremen; but they sent us their joy about this online opportunities. We will now think about future ways to combine online and physical teaching in Bremen.

We are MUCH aware that online teaching is not at all comparable to the common, wonderful contacts between lecturers and students we all wish for every summer university. Not to be able to see you in person, to join you during lunch break, to go to excursions or to party together was a great pity and we were missing all of this and more.

Last but not least we warmly thank our student assistants team. It was good to have you as the only students in place at the University during the summer.

Our Review
Our focus 2020 brought some unexpected topicality:

“Boundaries of the Body”
(Women’s) Bodies are sites of technological developments. Boundaries and limits become increasingly blurred: either through the optimization of health parameters, or the digital and technical enhancement of the body, up to unregulated collection of body-related data, and the bodies suffering the consequences of technology-based warfare. The Summer University 2020 wanted to give space and time for critical reflections and welcomed experimental debates on the relations of technological knowledge and developments in societies. We saw that several online courses integrated these topics.

Our motivation is to present the topics about gender diversity and feminist perspectives on teaching and society as cross-cutting issues, to integrate these into teaching and prevent these from “staying aside” of courses in separate courses.

Our Outlook…
We are curious to read your evaluations and to receive you suggestions. These will be taken into the planning of the next summer university year 2021.

The next upcoming online period will be a good moment to improve teaching methods. But we hope that at least a short version of summer university offers at Bremen will be possible.

We invite you all to partcipate and look forward to welcoming you next summer!

Greetings from Bremen,
Henrike Illig and Veronika Oechtering
