Dealing with traumatized refugees poses special challenges for voluntary workers. In this award-winning course, students will assess existing training guides for volunteers and ultimately create their own guide. The course is divided into three parts: In the first phase, students will acquire and broaden their theoretical knowledge. In the second phase, they will apply this knowledge in creating a training guide that they will present to a group of experts and put to the test in a trial training session. In a final step, they will present their training guides at a public event. This interdisciplinary course is aimed at students of psychology and education, providing specialist knowledge of the psychological consequences of trauma and enhancing didactic skills.

This teaching project was conceived to raise awareness of socially relevant issues in veterinary medicine among prospective veterinarians, biologists and chemists. As pigs play a key role in biomedical research – as farm animals, in the transmission of zoonotic and antibiotic-resistant pathogens to humans, and as comparative and translational model animals – the course does this by focusing on the link between pigs and humans. Students will look at the use of antibiotics in pig farming, zoonotic pathogens in pigs and their co-infections, and the pig as a large animal for humans, and participate in ongoing research projects at FU Berlin. As a final stage, they will organize a public panel discussion with various stakeholders. The course is a cooperation between four institutes of the Department of Veterinary Medicine.
