Special features regarding teachingThe teaching and learning methods in EES are highly applied. Even lectures are interactive and discursive due to the size of the course and allow for student-centred learning. Many lectures follow the concept of the "flipped classroom", where students do preparatory homework on the basis of which the topic is then discussed in greater depth. Tutorials consist of exercises with laboratory elements. Where possible, examples and empirical data from the geosciences will be used in learning methods.
