Digitale Lotsen (digital guides) help with digital studies

The Digitale Lotsen are experienced students who inform, advise and support students at the various faculties of Friedrich Schiller University Jena with regard to digital tools. They offer consultation hours and advice on the various tools, including subject-specific ones, support their fellow students in self-organised studies with digital tools, and spread news about digital transformation at Friedrich Schiller University Jena in the faculties.

We are still looking for more student "Lotsen"!  If you are a student and can imagine working as a guide (employment as a student assistant), please contact us!
