Leuphana Home Sessions

Free online education at home

Brief lectures, twice a week on Mondays and Thursdays at 3 pm, completely online in the livestream and with interaction possibilities - this is the new digital event series "Leuphana Home Sessions" of the Leuphana Professional School. Changing speakers give short live lectures on a wide range of topics from areas such as philosophy, digital change, law, gender and diversity, theology or history. After the end of the lecture, visitors have the opportunity to ask questions to the speakers via chat function and thus enter into a direct exchange. Some of the lectures will be held in English.

The free format is intended to create a digital space for exchange in times of corona virus and increased stays at home and to provide an alternative digital offer for leisure activities. The lectures will be recorded and then uploaded to this website and the Leuphana YouTube channel.

Course and programme

Twice a week we deliver fresh input for the head directly to your home - via livestream. You will find the corresponding link for participation on the day of the event on this page.

The next events will take place on the following topics (list will be updated continously, English lectures highlighted):

  • Thursday, 2 April 2020, 3 pm: "Statistics in the Era of Corona" - Prof. Dr. Henrik von Wehrden (German language)
  • Monday, 6 April 2020, 3 pm: "Learning in disruptive times" - Prof. Dr. Matthias Barth (English language)

At the beginning, the lecturers will present the respective topic of the day in a compact lecture. Afterwards we activate the chat, where you can exchange questions or your thoughts on the topic and have them answered by the lecturers. If you are unable to attend but are still interested in a topic, you can watch the presentation later: We will then upload all lectures as videos on this page and on the Leuphana YouTube channel.

Past lectures:

  • Leuphana Home Session #1: "Do we need a new constitution?" - Prof. Dr. Jörg Philipp Terhechte (German language)
  • Leuphana Home Session #2: "Crisis Management" - Prof. Dr. Markus Reihlen (German language)

Technical notes

The home sessions take place in a so-called online meeting room. For this purpose, we use the provider Zoom, with whom Leuphana and the Professional School work within the framework of online teaching.

You can access the meeting room simply by clicking on the link we provide in your web browser: https://zoom.us/j/791316391

If you are attending a zoom meeting for the first time, the required zoom client is usually downloaded automatically. You then have to install it once and can then participate in all zoom meetings without any further effort. Alternatively, you can find the corresponding client for download on the website of the manufacturer.

In order not to miss the start, you should plan a little time before your first participation or test the zoom participation before. The manufacturer offers the possibility to join a test meeting in advance to check if everything works.
