- Due to the current developments regarding the spread of the corona virus COVID-19, it is currently not possible to predict in what way the university teaching activities will be affected in the near future.
In the winter semester 2021, all lectures will be record and deposited in ILIAS for download. In addition, in consultation with the students and in accordance with the corona rules of conduct applicable at our university, there will be classroom events in which the course content will be discussed. Information about the dates will be available in ILIAS.
