Lehre und Lerne | Teach and Learn


Tyll Zybura | 31 Jan 2019 |

I am a PhD researcher at Bielefeld University, Germany. I publish on cultural constructions of childhood and I teach writing intensive seminars on critical theory and narrative theory, film and popular culture, literary constructions of childhood, zombie culture and biopolitical representation.

I love teaching and my students even recommended me for the Landeslehrpreis NRW 2019, which makes me so proud. I write more on my teaching practice and on education in general in my essays and over at Unconditional-Teaching.com.

You can book me for workshops to share my teaching expertise in writing intensive seminars, effective writing supervision, writing portfolios, student-teacher communication, and more – in German or English.

Magic questions to ask students about their writing

Tyll Zybura | 27 Nov 2019

In my writing supervision I focus on process instead of results and on reflection instead of adherence to rules to help students experience more agency over their writing when they become aware of their own writing strategies.
