We open up perspectives in research and teaching

Prof. Ulrich Frank

Botschaft an unsere Studierenden

Die widrigen Rahmenbedingungen des Sommersemesters 2020 stellen uns alle vor erhebliche Herausforderungen. Prof. Frank erläutert in diesem Video, dass damit auch Chancen verbunden sind. Sie können allerdings nur dann genutzt werden, wenn Lehrende und Lernende gemeinsam kreativ und (selbst-) kritisch neue Wege erkunden. Dazu skizziert er, welche Ziele wir mit der Virtualisierung der Lehre verfolgen.

Our course offerings in the summer term 2020

We are still here for you!

In the summer term 2020 we will continue to offer our range of courses for students to the usual extent. However, in order to act contrary to the further spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, we try to avoid direct contact as far as possible. This will also result in some changes for teaching and especially for the supervision meetings.
