The University of Paderborn will return to face-to-face teaching in the winter-term 2021/22. The resumption of face-to-face teaching will be based on the legally required 3G rule: this means that lecturers and students must prove their status as vaccinated, recovered or tested in order to participate in courses. Checking of 3G status is done on campus by designated staff. No digital substitute service will be provided for students who are unable to provide evidence of 3G status. Please note that the free test offer will be discontinued from mid-October.

Please check the university website for the current Corona regulations for courses in winter-term 2021/22.

Coronavirus: offers for students and employees

"daheimgeschrieben" - online writing group

It is easier to write together than alone. And if the analog doesn't work, then we'll make it digital!

The rules are simple:

  • We meet from 10 to 5 online on Discord. This is - as they say themselves - a "free, secure and extensive voice and text chat for gamers - for your computer and your smartphone".
  • You write as usual on your own device and in your usual word processing program
  • In the Discord writing group there are different channels where different things happen. The first and most important rule is that everyone in a channel only does what it is meant for
  • At the beginning of the writing day, all of them post their goals for the day
  • You will regularly receive new challenges - small tasks that make writing more exciting, easier and maybe even better. Whether you accept the challenges or prefer to concentrate on writing through them is up to you
  • At the end of the day, all participants will be awarded stars for their achieved writing goals in the corresponding channel
  • In a question memory you can ask all your questions about academic writing, answer each other's questions and give each other tips.

Appointment: The next appointment will be announced in time.

Further information and registration can be found under the following link:

We are looking forward to your participation!
