Irresponsible or necessary? Leipzig University is continuing to allow students to attend lectures in person. Experts and lecturers exchanged views on this in an online discussion.

On the same day that the number of new coronavirus infections reached unprecedented levels, professors and the Vice-Rector for Education and International Affairs at Leipzig University discussed in-person teaching: is it irresponsible to continue to hold seminars and lectures in the face of the impending Omicron wave? What is legally possible and how do isolation and online-only teaching affect people?

These issues were discussed by:

  • Professor Thomas Hofsäss, Vice-Rector for Education and International Affairs
  • Professor Elisa Hoven, professor at the Faculty of Law
  • Professor Hannes Zacher, professor of occupational and organisational psychology
  • Professor Markus Scholz, epidemiologist at the Faculty of Medicine

The discussion and accompanying chat can be viewed on the University’s YouTube channel.
