Status: November 19, 2021

Due to recent events (see information from the Rector's Office dated Nov. 19, 2021), SOT will be converted to a purely digital format as of Nov. 22, 2021. This means that small group appointments will now be conducted in digital format via BigBlueButton.

In the Moodle section "Student Advisor", you will find access to a BBB room for your small group appointment, which will be marked with the name of the on-site lecture room name. Please find yourself in this BBB room for your small group appointment.

There are no changes to the large group appointments as they have already been offered digitally.

Status: September 09, 2021; subject to change as part of COVID measures as per university.

The course will be held in hybrid form (digital synchronous large group appointments, on-site appointments in small groups and digital asynchronous elements). If the on-site appointments are not possible due to changes in the Corona situation, the course will be switched to pure online teaching (mixed: synchronous units and synchronous contact possibility via video conference, asynchronous work on assignments, asynchronous contact possibility via forum/mail). In any case, the mentioned appointments will remain and will then be used as digital appointments.

If you are unable to attend on-site appointments in WS 2021 for corona-related reasons, please contact us at sot.psychologie@univie.ac.at.

1. Please sign up for the SOT large group appointments through u:space. These large group appointments will be DIGITAL appointments in WS 2021 due to the Corona situation.
In addition, there are also small group appointments of approximately 8-10 people that will be conducted primarily as on-site appointments. However, the times for the latter small group appointments are different than those listed for the u:find large group appointments.

2. Once assigned to this SOT course, the following alternative dates for the small group appointments are available for selection. You must indicate your preference for these dates in the SOT Moodle course by a pre-announced deadline:

(199-1) Thurs Oct 21, Nov 4, Nov 18, Dec 2 15:00-16:30.
(199-2) Thu Oct 21, Nov 4, Nov 18, Dec 2 15:00-16:30.
(199-3) Thu Oct 21, Nov 4, Nov 18, Dec 2 18:30-20:00
(199-4) Thu Oct 21, Nov 4, Nov 18, Dec 2 18:30-20:00
(199-5) Thu Oct 21, Nov 4, Nov 18, Dec 2 18:30-20:00

3. There will be a total of nine appointments. There will be five appointments with your Faculty Advisor, with your Student Advisor also being present at the first of these five appointments. In addition, four appointments within your small group will be held by your Student Advisor only.
Therefore, when indicating your preferences for SOT teaching appointments (large group appointments) on u:space, also make sure that you have time for as many of the above alternative appointments as possible for reasons of later assignment to small group appointments.
