Shaping the new campus life.

We are ready

are you?

For the Winter Semester 2020/2021 ...

… we are planning to implement a blended learning concept. This will entail an intelligent mix of online offerings and on-site teachings for all study programs. Of course, on-site teaching is subject to future infection rates and a further easing of infection control regulations. We are taking all these concerns into consideration when creating our implementation plan and they are part of the reason why we will be taking a blended approach to the next semester.

It is our goal to create a teaching concept for each study program that meets the needs of all our students. The feedback we have received from our students enables us to further innovative courses to ensure optimal knowledge transfer and interaction. We are focused heavily on supporting all of our students regarding these new “forms of learning” but are specifically focused on our first-year students to ensure their transition to higher education is smooth. Find more information about the Winter Semster 2020/21 here.

THE NEW CAMPUS LIFE MEANS …

… FREEDOM OF CHOICE

We offer you an intelligent mix of online and face-to-face formats (hybrid teaching). By offering different teaching formats, we meet the learning needs of students in-class as well as off-campus.

Hybrid teaching
  • By introducing hybrid teaching, it is possible to address teaching to three groups of students at the same time:
      • students in the same classroom
      • students in another classroom who cannot be in the same classroom for reasons of available space and necessary distance
      • students off-campus, e.g. located abroad
  • It is a special concern of ours to be there for our first-year students. If necessary, we will provide them with virtual buddies and offer socializing opportunities via virtual channels.
  • Interaction and discourse are essential components of our teaching and will also be possible within the new teaching formats.
  • Our teaching concept aims to enable teaching to risk groups with as few restrictions as possible.
  • We rely on state-of-the-art technology to enable students to efficiently prepare, virtually participate and repeat recorded management courses.

… BEING SAFE NOT SORRY

Your safety will remain a top priority for your studies at TUM this winter term. We have introduced a hygiene and prevention concept that guarantees our students the greatest possible safety.

This includes (among others):

  • the provision of disinfection facilities
  • continuous cleaning measures
  • regular ventilation

Watch this video by @tu.muenchen on mandatory health and safety measures applicable on campus.

IMPORTANT: Participation in contact data collection is obligatory for all participants (including the lecturers) in the classroom ( §4(2) and §21(4), 7. BayIfSMV). In order to check the participation of the students, QRONITON displays how many people in the lecture hall have checked in. Find more information here (section 2.1).

… SOCIAL DISTANCING BUT NOT SOCIAL ISOLATION

A clearly visible regulation of passenger traffic and precise guidelines on event size and group classification enable the distance rule to be adhered to and ensure the greatest possible safety.

These measures serve your safety:

  • A one-way street system to avoid collision points as much as possible
  • Designation of waiting areas for changing student groups
  • Secure access to the buildings and classrooms, and the exit is guaranteed
  • For your own safety, we recommend that you also use the Corona Warn-App of the German government. Infected people can use this Bluetooth-based app to inform other users they have been in contact with in the last few days. Your contacts are stored only locally on your phone.

… SMILING WITH YOUR EYES

Face masks are recommended as a simple barrier to help prevent respiratory droplets from traveling into the air and onto other people when the person wearing the mask coughs, sneezes, talks, or raises their voice and thus helps to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.

However, as the preventive measures to contain the spread of the Corona virus continue, increasing numbers of single-use, throwaway face masks are polluting our environment and are starting to become a problem. In order to ensure our students’ and staff’s safety, help reduce our Covid impact on the environment, and support those who have been impacted most by the crisis: small, independent businesses, TUM School of Management is working together with the social enterprise Township to produce high-quality and eco-friendly reusable face masks for our students and staff.

As one of the strongest universities for start-ups, the promotion of these young entrepreneurial ventures as well as small, independent businesses that operate responsibly and sustainably (two of the TUM School of Management’s cornerstone values) is very important to us. The ethical textile brand Township is a Fair Trade social enterprise that produces a wide range of products, supporting six cooperatives that currently employ 50 women in the communities of Khayelitsha and Manenberg in Cape Town, South Africa. As part of their mission statement, Township works with independent women-owned cooperatives in the townships of Cape Town to produce South African products according to their clients’ specifications and needs. Township engages with clients worldwide and secures regular orders to ensure sustainable growth and development of the cooperatives they work with. They are also committed to environmental protection. As such, they produce eco-friendly, reusable, and durable alternatives to single use items: All of their products are made out of 100% natural cotton, jute or recycled PET fabric.
