Syllabi

This is the result of a discussion on Twitter: Dr Jennifer Leetsch (then Würzburg, now Bonn University) very kindly decided to upload her own course syllabi for the Corona summer term 2020 as an inspiration for others struggling with pandemic pedagogics. I subscribe to the idea of academic kindness/generosity in general, but I think it has become even more important during the Corona pandemic, at a time when many of us are struggling (with time, with caring responsibilities, with technical issues, with anxiety, etc. etc.). So here are my syllabi for the summer term 2022. You are welcome to steal ideas, and I would love to know if there was anything you found useful! Older syllabi (starting with winter term 2020/21) are below.
