Places are limited. Write Jenny Alice Rohde (040/42878-4613, j.rohde@tuhh.de) as soon as possible with the following information:

  • Exercise you give
  • Format of the exercise (digital, face-to-face, hybrid)
  • Brief description of your tutoring job (how many exercises, how long, do you pre-calculate or assist students in solving assignments independently, etc.)
  • Supervisor at the institute
  • Your experience in group leadership (including off-campus)> experience is not a prerequisite for participation
  • Group in which you would like to participate. The more training groups you can potentially participate in, the higher your chance of getting a spot.

There are advantages for you if more than one tutor from a particular subject participates in a training group, so – if possible – coordinate with your fellow tutors or make them aware of the training.
