GraFA will continue to offer trainings, coachings and consulting
during the Corona-period.

 

Dear doctoral candidates,

despite the current situation around Corona, GraFA tries to continue to offer you advice and training without endangering anyone′s health.

All advisory services including coaching are still available, but they will take place virtually. We kindly ask you to make an appointment with the respective colleagues beforehand (by e-mail or by telephone). We will carry out the consultations and coachings using the virtual meeting software GoToMeeting. You will receive the link by e-mail and can log in using your laptop or mobile phone (GoToMeeting App, available free of charge in the App Store).

Some of the courses and training can also be implemented in this way. The GraFA programs EMPOWER and the successful team "Young women at the top" will continue virtually on the dates already announced. For all other courses and workshops, we have contacted our trainers and are checking whether courses can virtually be carried out in whole or in part. Please register as usual for the courses online at https://tu-freiberg.de/en/grafa/weiterbildung. You will receive a message in time whether the course will take place virtually or whether it has to be postponed.

Unfortunately, we have to postpone courses on the development of teaching skills that are carried out in cooperation with the University Didactic Center Saxony (Hochschuldidaktisches Zentrum Sachsen).

We hope that together we can use this special time positively and creatively. Stay healthy.

The team of the GraFA
