Information on the basic module "Politisches System der Bundesrepublik Deutschland"



Due to the ongoing pandemic situation, it is not possible to hold the module “Das Politische System der Bundesrepublik Deutschland” as a face-to-face event in the winter semester 2020/21. Accordingly, both the lecture and the basic courses for the lecture are mainly held digitally via zoom.

The lecture takes place in a mixed form and consists of a weekly pre-recorded Videos of the lecture content (asynchronous part) and a webinar (synchronous part) in which Prof. Dr. Silvia von Steinsdorff speaks to the participants and answers questions. This webinar takes place via Zoom during the lecture period (Thursdays 10 am-12pm).

In addition, there will be a total of 9 basic courses (Grundkurse) for students in the social sciences mono bachelor, which will be taught synchronously by the individual basic course lecturers via zoom. The students register through Agnes before the course begins and are divided into basic course groups (approx. 20-25 people each). One basic course will be taught in English by Tristan Klingelhöfer (Fridays from 10:00 to 12:00).

In addition to online teaching, we would like to enable each basic course to meet up in a face-to-face session in the third course week. Further details on the date will be discussed in the course itself. A hybrid format is used for these sessions, so that those who are not present can be switched on via zoom and participate in the seminar without restrictions. The names and presence of the students should be recorded and the hygiene regulations according to the Berlin plan for university operations under pandemic conditions should be observed.

Lectures start on November 5th, as will the basic classes (Grundkurse).

Further information will be announced in the Moodle course. All students please register for the course "VL Politisches System der Bundesrepublik Deutschland" (Important: WiSe 2020/21). No password is required at the beginning. If you do not yet have access to Moodle via an HU account, please set up a guest account and enroll independently.
