Tutorials and Teaching assistantships
Tutorials are held by Bachelor students. Tutors assist lecturers when conducting an exercise or practical course. Normally tutors supervise a work group of students.
Teaching assistantships are conducted by Master students. Teaching assistants support lecturers with demanding tasks, for instance when designing or correcting assignments or instructing tutors.
Individual Learning Unit
An individual learning unit allows students to work independently on a topic, familiarizing them with working on their own and according to scientific principles. An individual learning unit can take the form of literature study, small-scale research projects, software development or the development and completion of an experiment.
Course materials for individual courses are managed by the respective module coordinators and lecturers and are published on their websites or on OLAT. Additionally, students should follow any instructions from the lecturer during the first lecture.
