Center for teaching and learning
|Teaching is becoming more digital. Not only the current situation but also the outlook on future teaching calls for the digitalisation and digital transformation of teaching methods and courses. In the 2020/21 winter semester as well as in the semesters to follow, courses will not only be planned analogue but also online, as attendance courses or hybrid teaching, i.e. as blended learning. >|
For you as the lecturer this means that teaching online in the 2020/21 winter semester must contain the following elements at least
- The provision of a Moodle course, which is open at the beginning of the winter semester for the students to enrol themselves
- An actively used channel for communications with the students
- Educational videos or audios (Podcasts) or “live” teaching at regular intervals
The faculties themselves decide the way a certain course can be taught.
We have compiled some instructions and tutorials for you here:

Creating accessible online teaching
In an accessible online education it is possible for all students - regardless of their circumstances and preconditions - to pursue their studies without external assistance. We are offering our support, directly related to your lectures and individually for your students. We appreciate any information about accessibility issues in online education. It helps us to understand the needs and to recognise and break down barriers in the digital space. Further information on your options for a more accessible online teaching can be found here
