#TUgetherAtHome - together while apart

On 18 May 2020, TU Berlin moved to restricted in-presence operations, thus ending its phase of essential-only presence, in place since 20 March 2020. TU staff are to continue working from home as far as possible. Summer semester 2020 continues to be held using digital formats. As a result, our University does not have its fixed points of anchor at Ernst Reuter Platz in Charlottenburg, in Wedding, Schöneberg, or El Gouna, Egypt. It has become a digital network spread all over Berlin and beyond, in Germany and even abroad, in studies, communal kitchens, and on balconies. What do University operations conducted from home look like exactly?

Our #TUgetherAtHome campaign allows you to visit a virtual TU Berlin campus from your own home. We interview scientists about their research topics, offer join-in sports programs, provide you with the latest information from the Crisis Committee and present options for online teaching.

We are constantly updating our offers and the content of our website. It is well worth checking out on a regular basis to see what’s new.

The University’s research continues apace. Whether 3D-printed components for respiratory equipments, videos explaining the math behind social distancing, or the results of TU students’ participation in the “WirVsVirus” hackathon, we are taking a closer look at our researchers’ current activities.

Online Teaching

Home office, communal kitchen or balcony - the lecture halls and seminar rooms of summer semester 2020 will be rather unusual. We all have to meet digitally. In response, teachers are working to develop and offer online formats. A few share their personal experiences and tips here.
