Procedure of the Online Kick-Off Seminar

Each Online Kick-Off Seminar consists of two modules:

Module 1 comprises a 3 hour interactive video call. Two members of the TUM-GS Management Office will guide you through the Poster- and Good Scientific Practice-Session. The video call will be conducted with Zoom.

Please note that an individual preparation for the live session is required. We have set up a virtual classroom on the TUM moodle platform. There are videos that you can watch and documents to read. You will find detailed instructions for the individual preparation on the moodle platform. We will send you all necessary information and access codes two weeks prior to the video call.

Module 2 is a transferable skills course with a workload of 14 hours conducted by an external trainer. Those 14 hours can be spread over 2-4 days, depending on the trainer. The trainers use Zoom or comparable online meeting tools. They will send you all necessary information and access codes in time. You have to choose one course out of a list of several topics.

Technical requirements

In order to access the TUM moodle platform, you need a TUM ID (or an LMU account). In case you do not have such an ID, you can contact the person responsible for TUM Online at your chair or department to get a “Guest ID”. Ideally, you have the TUM ID before registering, because the setup usually takes some time.

For the video call we use Zoom. Please make sure, that you can use this tool on your laptop or mobile device. You also need a stable internet connection, a camera and microphone.
