Susan Thieme and Patricia Fry win with their seminar format the award for university teaching 2021 from the VGDH, Association for Geography at German-speaking Universities and Research Institutions (Germany, Austria, Switzerland).
The seminar combined the topics sustainability, mobility & train station development and transdisciplinarity. The students learned the transdisciplinary Social Learning Video method (SLV).
In close cooperation with representatives of the Swiss Federal Railways (SBB) and other practical partners, the students gained insight into negotiations on the future role and design of train stations as "mobility hubs", using Olten train station as a case study. These are places where sustainability issues such as access to and use of mobility for population groups, mobility infrastructure and participation in decision-making are negotiated.
