Sustainability research targets issues on the macro-, meso- or micro level (societies, organisations, groups and individuals). While a political or sociological viewpoint focuses on the macro- or meso-level, social sustainability in this course issues the meso- and micro-level of organisations and the people within. Part 1 (in winter terms, alternately with part 3) of this General Studies reflects rising problems in the postmodern organisation, considering the strategic, interactive and individual dimensions (topics: basics on sustainability studies, psychology of work, occupational health management, workaholism, burnout, mobbing, work-life-balance and downshifting). Part 2 (in summer terms) aims for a deeper understanding on topics of further in-depth consideration identified as important for a socially sustainable organisation, chosen by students according to own interests. Part 4 targets the issue of intercultural communication in alternating summer terms. All summer term classes are accompanied by a field exploration besides theoretical knowledge in the classroom enlightenment. All parts described can be studied separately; since students like continuity, a series is offered.

Part 3 spotlights on principles, approaches and methods which enable the postmodern organisation and their actors to support socially sustainable practices at the workplace. The first two sessions are dedicated to the organisation of the seminar and some basic knowledge. The further topics will be prepared in small groups of students. They take care to prepare inputs and interactional parts, shaped as a workshop, which allows for “living learning” (TCI didactic) about the chosen topic for all participants. Suggested topics are: Sustainable leadership, participation and quality of work, communication skills, acknowledgement and work, new practices of time-management, e.g.

The seminar uses English as Lingua Franca – coping with the effects of this setting is part of the reflection within the course, referring to differences between communication, comprehension and understanding within a working environment. Students are supported to express themselves, didactically and by the lecturer. The interactive learning setting combines theoretical and practical elements and allows for reflection on own experiences of participants.
The summer term 2018 and the winter term 2018/19 will offer students part 2 and 1 of the seminar with topics as mentioned above. Please note: all parts can be attended singularly.

Recommended for students in their 3rd semester. Open to first semester students, students from other faculties (BA, MA), and Erasmus students. As a training seminar, this course is limited to 20 participants.
