Individual Teaching Guidance

You want to design your teaching effectively, target group-oriented and practice-oriented with little effort?
You want to promote the self-learning management of your students, implement blended learning or integrate research processes into your teaching?

In an individual teaching consultation, which focuses on your specific, event-related questions, we develop concepts for your teaching together with you, reflect on your methodological approach or support you in your teaching projects.

Equal Opportunities

The Equal Opportunities Office offers extensive programs and measures, especially to support (junior) female scientists.

In addition, counseling in cases of discrimination and harassment is another important focus of the work.
