Enroll to Tamko’s Zoom workshop on remote studying, 30th March 2021: https://bit.ly/38yhD46
Hi, you wouldn’t have anything to say about this would you? We would need a couple of ideas: what would get you and your friends interested in doing things together with other people? How would you make remote studying more enjoyable? What things are difficult for you and how could you be helped with them? Would you have a specific skill that you could teach others? Lets find everyone a group!
Come and discuss your ideas in our Zoom workshop on the 30th of March at 4pm-5pm, so this does not take long! All degree students are welcome, whether you are studying an bachelors or a masters. You know the best about remote studying and working so we want your opinion! For people participating in the workshop, there is a small prize!
