Dr. phil. Irina Slot studied physics, business administration and intercultural communication in Moscow, Hanover and Maastricht. She received her PhD in Sociolinguistics from Technical University Berlin.
She published various books and articles on interculturalism and interdisciplinarity. Irina Slot derives her teaching from her experiences as a practicioner, in accordance with the quote accredited to Albert Einstein "Learning is an experience. Everything else is just information."
Her pedagogical principles are based on consequent student-orientation and modern teaching methods - not as an end it itself but as a means to individual and sustainable learning.
