The extended senate of the University of Erfurt had deliberated in an extraordinary session on presence teaching in the winter semester 2020/21 at the University of Erfurt under the current corona conditions in the city of Erfurt and at the University of Erfurt and, in view of the high and increasing dynamics of infection with the corona virus, had agreed to the principle of "as much presence teaching as necessary" for the winter semester that had begun, with the aim of converting teaching operations to online formats to a large extent (see news 6.11.2020).
Department 1 explains this:
For you as a student this means: If you are interested in courses offered in class this semester, please keep track of whether the respective lecturers have switched to online offerings. You will be informed about this either via the course catalogue in E.L.V.I.S. or via the respective Moodle room of the course or via e-mail to your university e-mail address. Please also keep up to date with the information provided by the University of Erfurt on how to deal with the Coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 and especially with the information for students!
Further information is provided in the letter on the following questions on dealing with corona disease:
Until further notice the following applies: Students of the University of Erfurt who are themselves ill (with unspecific general symptoms or respiratory problems) should please see a doctor immediately and only then contact the University of Erfurt, Department 1: Studies and Teaching or by e-mail SuL@uni-erfurt.de.
Even if you
- had contact with a corona sufferer,
- are staying abroad, but are unable to return to Germany due to safety orders issued by the safety authorities in the sense of the quarantine measure
- are either in officially ordered or self-selected quarantine,
please contact Department 1: Studies and Teaching by phone or e-mail SuL@uni-erfurt.de. Together with you, your colleagues will then discuss the further procedure, in particular how you can approach your studies in times of quarantine.
