Concept of the digital event series

In times of Corona we decided to continue the exchange format digital: TalkBar digital. The goal of the TalkBar is the exchange with students and interested university members. With the digital format, we offer insights into various topics brought along by the experts. All topics have in common that they are related to studies and student life that helps them to get through the studies or to remove obstacles. A good format, that's what we think to create a better network. Therefore, all members of the university are invited to participate in the TalkBar to share their knowledge and experiences.



The discussion is executed using Zoom. An external speaker provides expertise information on the respective topic, and a moderator leads the digital exchange of expertise. In the meeting, the participants also share their experience and knowledge.
