Informationen für meine Studierenden / News for my students

Liebe Studierende, bitte nutzen Sie für hochschulbezogene Informationen ausschließlich die jeweiligen Kanäle der Hochschule. Ich werde auf meiner Website, also hier, in Form eines Beitrages oder einer Seite, keinerlei aktuelle Infos rund um die Einschränkungen aufgrund der Coronakrise veröffentlichen. Die Hochschulen geben vor, was wie und wo geschieht. Bitte achten Sie auf die dortigen Informationen. Hier wird es nur völlig unabhängige Infos ohne aktuellen Hochschulbezug geben, also keine Termininfos, Seminarinfos, Planänderungen o.ä.

Bleiben Sie gesund – und zu Hause! ;-)

Dear students, please use only the respective university channels for university-related information. I will not publish any current information on my website, i.e. here, in the form of an article or a page, about the restrictions due to the corona crisis. The universities specify what happens how and where. Please pay attention to the information on their platforms. Here you will only find completely independent information without any current reference to universities, i.e. no information on dates, seminars, changes of plans or the like.

Stay healthy – and at home! ;-)

#Coronavirus #COVID2019 #COVIDー19: Business as usual – the digital way

Dear friends and fellows,
dear students,
dear members of the media,

due to the coronavirus situation most Universities and Companies minimize or prohibit public access to their premises. I´ll do the same for my University office and my own business and try to minimize all office sessions as much as possible. But the work continues – now as “Mobile Working”. So please feel free to contact me as usual, via phone, mail or other channels known to you. Let´s try to fight the spread of the coronavirus as much as possible by using digital forms of communication, postponing non-digital meetings and workshops. So please do not ask me for an appointment in my office – there will be none for several weeks.

Journalists: If you are interested in an Interview: everything “remote” is still possible, except camera teams visiting me or studio sessions.

Please check this website regularly for updates.

(BTW: you can find a new interview with me (in German) about the coronavirus situation and the role of Social Media here.)
