Corona Pandemic - Teaching

 

TEACHING IN THE WINTER TERM 2021/22

 

Teaching at the WiSo-Faculty in winter term 2021/22

In the winter semester 2021/2022, we will return to face-to-face teaching at the WiSo Faculty as far as possible. However, this will not yet be possible in every single course. In this respect, there will be a "transition semester".

We are planning our teaching for the coming winter semester under the following guidelines:

  • Large lectures will probably be offered online, in digital form. In particular, all lectures of the first and third semester (according to the study plan) of the Bachelor's degree programmes of our faculty are considered large.
  • The exercises that belong to the large lectures are offered in smaller groups and, if possible, also in presence.
  • The courses (lectures, exercises, seminars) in the higher semesters of the Bachelor's degree programmes and in the Master's degree programmes will probably be offered in attendance in the vast majority of cases.
  • In the international Master's degree programmes in economics, pure online study is possible.

 

For specific information on the organisation of teaching in the courses offered in the winter semester 21/22, please refer to the respective announcements in UnivIs and especially the course descriptions in Olat.

In general, participation in face-to-face courses requires that participants provide proof of complete vaccination protection, recovery or a current negative corona test result (max. 72 hours old) with regard to the corona virus (so-called 3G rule).

 

Equipment required for online formats:

In order to participate in online courses and online examinations at the WiSo Faculty, students need the following equipment:

Laptop/computer

a stable internet connection

Webcam

microphone and loudspeaker or headset

 

We recommend that you take care of this as early as possible, as under the current conditions, the quality of your studies depends on it more than usual.

Most online lectures will take place via zoom or BigBlueButton or videos will be made available. Enrol early in the relevant courses in OpenOlat and pay attention to the information on univis.

 

Bachelor courses and Master BWL / WiWi / WiPo:

As far as the situation allows, the courses are offered in presence. A list of the individual study programs can be found below*.

 

English-language master's programs at the Institute of Economics:

As it is still difficult or even impossible for many international students to enter the country, we will offer all master modules of the Institute of Economics online or hybrid. In both cases pure online studying is possible and there is no need to be present in Kiel. This concerns all modules at Master level with a module code beginning with "VWL". You can find what this means in concrete terms for the individual study programs below*.

 

Welcome of the new students in the 1st semester:

More information on welcome events will be provided.
