Digital teaching in Comparative Literature - A new module on avldigital.de
Due to the Covid-19 pandemia, all university teaching needs to be realised digitally on very short notice. Even though there is no lack of local and online support for the teaching staff of universities, everybody is confronted with the same questions: How to start teaching digitally, what tools to use, which guidelines to observe, how to support students?
On avldigital.de, the Specialised Information Service Comparative Literature supports teaching scholars in Comparative Literature in finding answers to these questions. To this end, it has formed a close cooperation with the initiative "Digital Teaching German Studies" and its information platform.
#flattenthecurve: Social distancing, home office and working digitally help to cushion the Corona pandemia's effects. avldigital.de is, as its name suggests, a digital service. Thanks to that, we can keep offering our platform for scholars in Literary Studies! Our team is workin from home, and all our portal's functions are kept available.
