The course will run in a digital format while course attendance is discontinued by the University
We provide updates when the situation changes
We may switch back to an attendance-based model when this option becomes available again
Please see the Syllabus for more details
Formats for online teaching may vary:
readings, ILIAS training modules (e.g. quizzes), live digital presentations, video lectures, video tutorials, or podcasts and interviews
Because this part of the teaching is entirely online, it will be important for you to exercise discipline and study at your own leisure and pace.
We currently assume that physical meetings will be possible again in the second half of the semester
Thus, we do not intend to change the assessment forms for now
However, if necessary, we have to adapt, and more information will follow
We implemented a case study challenge as a new format to gain bonus points and to train working remotely in a distributed team
