Online teaching in the summer semester 2020
Dear students, the special summer semester 2020 due to the corona pandemic is now halfway through. In the meantime, we have certainly all become somewhat accustomed to digital teaching formats and the push in the digitalisation of teaching at universities is considerable. Our faculty has conducted a survey among you about your experiences with digital teaching, the results of which are now available. Almost 70 percent of the more than 800 respondents rate the start of the virtual summer semester as rather good and better. Nevertheless, there is of course still room for improvement. The faculty will therefore remain in close contact with your student representatives in order to continue to work together on improvements in teaching. Furthermore, the faculty has suspended the review of deadlines and credit limits for all students in all semesters for one semester.
Even though, for good reasons, we will unfortunately not offer classroom teaching this semester, we plan to offer both digital and classroom teaching for all students in the coming winter semester. On our website www.wiwi.uni-goettingen.de/sommersemester2020 we will continue to inform you about the latest developments.
