SPEAKERS AND WORKSHOPS Lotte works as an assistant professor in continuing education and research, with a specific focus on social pedagogy at VIA University College in Aarhus. Lotte has a long relationship with the UK & Ireland having practiced and taught here periodically over a number of years. She focuses her research and lecturing on different aspects of social pedagogy and social work, including how the children, young people and adults that social pedagogy and social work is supposed to help, encounter and perceive that help. In that sense, and in a perspective inspired by the German sociologist Niklas Luhmann, she explores help and the borders of help.
