Professor Holzschuh Sator began her teaching at Queen’s with third-year Business German courses for which she compiled her own teaching materials, Deutsch in Beruf und Wirtschaft, and also co-ordinated our second-year Business German courses. She has also taught our introductory Literature Courses, GRMN 311 and 312, as well as second-year language courses. Most recently, Dr. Holzschuh Sator has focused on our introductory language courses.

During the existence of the graduate program in the Department of German, Dr. Holzschuh Sator was supervising MA and PhD students’ teaching, and coordinating the introductory language courses. She also reorganized the curriculum for the first-year language textbook, Kontakte, which is now used over three semesters, including in GRMN 201.

Recently, Dr. Holzschuh Sator presented on the role of videoconferencing (Skype exchange) in intermediate German language classes at the DAAD German Studies North America Conference. She is currently working on papers on the use of clickers in teaching German, and on managing large introductory language classes. She is also involved with the AP German Language and Culture Reading happening annually in June in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA.
