We hope you are well and safe. The impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic still commands changes to education, examination and consultation, amongst others. Here are a few of these changes that you need to be aware of:
- Online teaching continues for most of our courses in the summer term 2021. Only for the Advanced Seminar (Master), we may offer a hybrid teaching model, depending on how the situation develops. The start and end dates of the courses remain as originally planned, from 12 April 2021 until 23 July 2021. We have compiled comprehensive information on each of our courses in the drop-downs below. Please recognize that student engagement, education and assessment in non-physical forms will be different. Online teaching, learning, consultation and assessment works differently.
- What you can do is to recognize that changes in course delivery, assessment format and learning will have to be made. Much of online education involves doing more work at your own pace and leisure. You will likely need to read and prepare materials by yourself, without direct and constant instruction by a lecturer or tutor. Check back regularly in here and in ILIAS to learn about the new forms of conduct.
- Please recognize that any physical contact, of whatever form and for whatever reason, is to be avoided. You should at all times keep your social distance and rely on electronic, digital or virtual forms of communication and collaboration. Alternative arrangements are being made for any student activity that would normally involve social contact. These include, for example, examinations, classes, seminars, group work, exam result inspections, and others. The workarounds we implemented include postponements, virtual meeting spaces, digital learning offerings, alternative assessments, and so forth.
- What you can do is to check whether and which forms of student activity you are currently involved in that would normally include social contact. Check if alternative arrangements are already available. If not, please contact your responsible lecturer or tutor. Please also visit the webpages of the faculty and the university:
Best regards and stay safe!
