Introduction
I am a political sociologist with 20+ years experience of teaching and programme development in a range of different Higher Education establishments in the UK and Germany. My current research interests lie, amongst other things, in the areas of curriculum development around research-based learning in Higher Education, the research-teaching nexus and the internationalisation of Higher Education.

Deutsch: Wissenschaftliche Schreib- und Forschungskompetenz soll durch Forschendes Lernen gefördert werden. In der Literatur wird diese Lehr-Lernform jedoch uneinheitlich definiert und häufig werden unterschiedliche curriculare Elemente darunter verstanden. Ziel des vorliegenden Beitrags ist es, konzeptionelle Unschärfen aufzuklären, indem Forschen...
Article
Full-text available
Wilhelm von Humboldt and the Humboldtian ideal of the “unity of research and teaching” are frequently invoked in debates about research-based education (Healey and Jenkins 2009; Huber 2011). While the concept of the “research university” attributed to him became influential both in Germany and the United States (Boyer Commission 1998, 1; van der We...
Chapter
Full-text available
Using the developments in East Germany after unification as an example, this chapter tackles the Centre for Contemporary Cultural Studies' claim that 'subcultural resistance' is limited to a short moment of cultural creativity at the beginning and ceases instantly when the new subculture, its music and its symbols are picked up by the media and tur...

Die systematische Weiterentwicklung der Lehre gewinnt im deutschen Hochschulraum zunehmend an Bedeutung. Dies stellt die Hochschulen vor eine vielschichtige Frage: Wie kann die Qualität von Lehre verbessert werden? Um diese Frage zu beantworten, wird in der Regel auf Lehrveranstaltungsevaluation zurückgegriffen, die jedoch wirkungslos bleibt, wenn...
Chapter
This chapter examines the challenges of getting two different systems of doctoral education to interact. The development of the joint PhD agreement between Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin and King’s College London is used as an example to illustrate some of the challenges of developing a transnational PhD programme. After an outline of the recent tr...
Chapter
As German universities did not begin to offer Bachelor degrees on a noticeable scale before 2007, the concept of “undergraduate research” is relatively new to German Higher Education discourse and policy. This chapter examines how the Bologna Reform process and the introduction of a two-cycle BA/MA degree system between 2000 and 2010 impacted a sys...
Chapter
The Chapter offers a quick but detailed introduction to the relationship between research, students and teaching in modern German Higher Education since the 19th Century. While "undergraduate research" is still a novel concept in Germany, there is a rich tradition in "Forschendes Lernen" (research-based learning) from the 1970s onwards. The chapter...

Article
Full-text available
Research-based learning (RBL) is regarded as a panacea when it comes to effective instructional formats in higher education settings. It is said to improve a wide set of research-related skills and is a recommended learning experience for students. However, whether RBL in the social sciences is indeed as effective as has been postulated for other d...
Chapter
Full-text available
One basic principle of inquiry-based learning that hitherto has received too little reflection is its potential to allow for a focus on competence goals rather than on discipline- or course-specific educational contents (e.g. disciplinary knowledge). Although a broad potential for fostering a wide array of competences is attributed to inquiry-based...

Research competence (RC) as a key ability of students in the social sciences has thus far been conceptualized as consisting primarily of cognitive dispositions. However, owing to its highly complex and demanding nature, competence in conducting research might require additional affective and motivational dispositions. To address this deficiency in...

Chapter
Full-text available
The chapter introduces different types of qualitative methods and their uses in political research. It then uses - in an abstract way - my fieldwork experiences in interviewing members of the Austrian Freedom Party 1998-2001 as a case to reflect upon the pitfalls of interviewing political activists/party members.
Article
In an attempt to get a better handle on the (then) much-used catchphrase 'Thatcher's children', our research examined the political views, preferences and electoral choices of a cohort of pupils raised and politically socialised in Northampton under three successive conservative governments.

(German // English version below:) Das HU-Q Programm ist ein Programm der Humboldt-Universität zur Schaffung von Freiräumen und Angeboten für forschungsbezogene Lehre und eigenständige studentische Forschung ab dem Bachelor-Studium. Umgesetzt wird das HU-Q Programm vor allem in drei Formaten: - Q-Tutorien: Von Studierenden initiierte und angeleitete Forschungsprojekte, in denen Gruppen von Studierenden gemeinsam eine eigene Forschungsfrage oder ein Forschungsthema bearbeiten - Q-Teams: Von Nachwuchsforscher*innen initiierte studentische Forschungsteams, die unter Anleitung/Betreuung der/des Nachwuchsforscherin/s einen Teilaspekt oder eine Teilfrage eines laufenden Drittmittelprojekts bearbeiten - Q-Kollegs: Internationale studentische Forschungsteams in Kooperation mit einer oder mehreren Partnerhochschulen/einrichtungen Das HU-Q Programm wird durch den Qualitätspakts Lehre finanziert und an der Humboldt-Universität durch das bologna.lab umgesetzt. Das Angebot umfasst neben den bislang (Stand Juli 2017) etwa 230 Lehr/Forschungsveranstaltungen auch Fortbildungsangebote zum Forschenden Lernen für Lehrende, Forscher*innen und studentische Tutor*innen. (Englische Fassung) The HU-Q Programme is an inititive by Humboldt-Universität to (re)create spaces for research-based learning and opportunities for independent student research from the Bachelor-level onwards. It consists of three main formats: - the Q-Tutorials: student-initiated and -led research projects, in which groups of students pursue an independently chosen research question or topic - the Q-Teams: projects initiated by junior research staff (PhD to PostDoc) in which they supervise small teams of students in their work on a particular question or aspect of an existing (third party funded) research project - the Q-Kolleg: international student research teams in cooperation with one of our international partner universities or research institutes. The HU-Q programme is funded through the Quality-Pact for Teaching and run by the bologna.lab at Humboldt-Universität. Alongside the around 230 projects we facilitated to date (July 2017), the bologna.lab also offers training in reseach-based learning for teaching staff, researchers and student-tutors.
