Review on the Students’ Discussion Group

The Students’ Discussion Group has been taking place regularly since winter semester 2016. In a casual atmosphere, the team of the Vice rectorate for Academic Affairs gets in contact with students directly to discuss topics concerning learning and teaching. The last Discussion Group on 28 May focused in the central part of the discussion on the topic of actively taking examinations and which measures could lead to an increase of positively taken exams.

The output of the Discussion Group, a review on the years 2016 to 2019 and further information can be found on the intranet TU4U.
