The corona crisis calls for new forms of teaching

For the time being the corona pandemic has made it impossible to hold courses in lecture halls and seminar rooms. Nevertheless TUM wants to make sure that its 43,000 students suffer no serious consequences and they will still be able to continue their studies in the upcoming summer semester without extraordinary limitations. TUM President Thomas F. Hofmann is asking for support in order to implement a massive expansion of digital teaching.

TUM already has great experience in digital curricula. Circumstances now call for TUM to deliver modern digital learning tools, online class formats and new forms of electronic examinations even more quickly. "Our objective is to ensure that our students are not at a disadvantage in the upcoming summer semester and that they can continue their studies without substantial losses in terms of time or quality," says Thomas F. Hofmann, President of TUM.

All teaching staff and employees have been working with unprecedented dedication and great creativity to redeploy curricula and reorient the IT infrastructure to meet the new requirements. "This feat of strength can only be mastered with a considerable amount of additional financing," says Hofmann. "Therefore it is now important that the TUM community with its large circle of generously supporting patrons stands together."
