Corona update March 13th, 2020
Due to the current situation, no courses with physical presence can be held until Friday, April 3, 2020, thus, please use the material provided online to independently develop the course content relevant to the exam (see Moodle-Link u:find: Termine, Inhalte, Methoden, Ziele, Leistungskontrolle). In the next few days, some slides will be provided with a kind of "audio commentary" with additional explanations and will be uploaded as an mp4 file on Moodle.

After reopening of the lecture halls, I will try to discuss any questions that may arise about the documents made available on Moodle as part of a presence unit. I ask you to post questions in advance in the student forum. Since I expect a lot of traffic here, I ask you to formulate your questions clearly and unambiguously. Please read the questions of your colleagues regularly to avoid repetitions and please also try to answer questions among yourselves.

I can only announce the exact date for this unit once it has been clarified when a face-to-face operation can take place again. It is currently not planned to reschedule the first exam date (April 29, 2020).
