To respond to the call by the government to reduce contacts and contribute to reducing the spread of the virus and to ensure the health and safety of everyone, we will offer to teach online until 31 January 2021. As soon as circumstances and legal requirements allow, we will return to the hybrid study model (a combination of face-to-face days and online classes).
The hybrid study model includes two types of online lectures:
All face-to-face lectures will be streamed live, meaning that students can attend either way. Our students will switch between face-to-face lectures and live broadcasts to keep lecture groups as small as possible and to comply with physical distancing and other hygiene rules.
The second online teaching option will be provided as interactive Zoom sessions. This form is generally used for teaching by external lecturers and members of risk groups. This keeps lecturers travel to a minimum and protects us all.
Your individual combination of face-to-face and online learning depends on your study programme, the choice of courses, and your own health and travel situation.
The hybrid study model ensures that direct exchange between students and teachers is maintained and there is still room for discussion and interaction during the lectures. Digital breakout rooms can be used for workshop formats and group work and rooms on campus - this, however, this is subject to general hygiene regulations. Guest speakers from the business world will be ‘patched in’ to the online lectures. Using the chat function, you can ask questions, stimulate discussions, and be in direct exchange with experienced practitioners.
In other words, the full spectrum of teaching is still being provided. Books required for project work or final examinations are available from our libraries’ online database or on-campus, in compliance with the general hygiene regulations. Examinations will be taken at our locations, naturally in compliance with current hygiene and safety measures. In exceptional cases, it is possible to examine digital form as agreed with the examinations office.
