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.

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/775711611

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.

Registration for information mails

Would you like us to send you the link to participate directly to your mailbox before each event? Then sign up for our mailing list. Simply send an e-mail with the subject "Mailing List Leuphana Home Sessions" to Christoph Kleineberg (christoph.kleineberg@leuphana.de).
