Dr. Nancy Grimm

ANN_5041_klein

I am Project Coordinator at the Center for Teacher Training and Educational Research at the University of Jena and responsible for the internationalization of teacher education, with a focus on the Practical Training Term Abroad in the Jena Model of Teacher Education.

From 2004 to 2015, I was Research Assistant / Assistant Professor with the TEFL chair at the University of Jena. My teaching interests – inseparably conjoined with my research ambitions – were (and are) the facilitation of intercultural competence(s), media studies and the facilitation of media literacy, as well as intertextuality and intermediality.  

I studied English, German, and Philosophy at the University of Potsdam and the State University of New York, USA (2002-2003, Fulbright Travel Grant).

I am also active as an in-service teacher trainer, educational materials developer, and author.
