About us - Links


My name is Frank Simon. I studied technical chemistry. After that I worked for 3 years at a shipyard, 2 years in dairy research and 3 years in the plastics industry.
The following 32 years I was a scientific employee at the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences (Germany): 14 years in the process engineering laboratory and 18 years in the ergonomics laboratory. I taught the students how to do the laboratory experiments, always trying out new ideas in order to optimize my teaching style. In the final years I also gave lectures, For example, the lecture "Occupational Health Research" in the master's degree course "Health Sciences". Since August 2021 I am retired.


When I wanted to optimize my teaching, I realized that I had to answer basic questions.


By doing the lab experiments, students should ...

1.  gain practical skills:
     → How to study successfully in university?

     → How to learn?
     → How to solve problems?

2.  conduct occupational science experiments:
     → What is health?

     → What is occupational health?

     → What is health research?
3.  learn to work scientifically:
     → What is science? What is research?


4.  perform experiments according to the experimental instructions:
     → How to write a text?

5.  being treated with respect:
     → What is respect?


... and other questions.


My son Jerom works with me on the website and the online seminars.
