Doctoral seminar

12.10.2020: Last week we went to the Müritz for our doctoral seminar. There we spent two days discussing our research projects and planning next steps. To compensate, we also did some sports, for example jogging or kayaking. For the first time we had two new bema doctoral students with us, who will soon introduce themselves on our website.

Adaptations of our teaching due to the pandemic

30.09.2020: To facilitate interactive learning also during the pandemic, we implement digital teaching concepts in our courses. We strive to offer hybrid teaching as soon as possible, so that attendance is possible on site as well as from home.

Currently we upload lecture contents as videos. In addition, there are weekly video conferences in which students can ask questions and content can be further discussed. In some courses, students can self-assess their understanding with quizzes that we upload weekly.

Students can find the details in the respective Stud.IP courses. We also provide brief insight on the respective pages under Teaching (this websie).
