Notices for Examination Rooms and Lecture Halls:

As a result of the measures taken by the Bavarian Cabinet in the context of the Corona pandemic, universities are required to replace digitizable face-to-face teaching formats with digital formats. Laboratory activities, internships, practical and artistic training components, and examinations can still be held in presence, subject to compliance with the handouts published here.

      Research internships and project work, which are courses in the curricula of the degree programs, are carried out under the responsibility of the respective department chair as practical courses according to the handbook for laboratory internships.

For Bachelor and Master students who have to work in presence to complete their theses, the same (hygiene and occupational health and safety) regulations apply – under the responsibility of the responsible chair – when in presence as for academic staff.

The transition to new digital teaching formats means new experiences in learning and teaching, which require special evaluation.

Firstly, both qualitative and quantitative feedback from students and teachers about their experiences with online formats was collected during the summer semester. Information was gathered on initial experiences with the transition to digital formats in different types of courses in order to identify further need for action and best practices as early as possible.

Second, a comprehensive retrospective evaluation and review of the experiences gained with digital teaching formats is conducted at the end of the lecture period.

For further information on the topic of evaluation, please contact the Study and Teaching – Quality Management team.
