... the active break for in between

Since the summer semester 2019, we have been ensuring eventful times within the courses. University sports have been supporting company health management at the Free University of Berlin since 2013 and, with the Pausenexpress, offers employees an active exercise break as part of their everyday work. This should now also be made possible for students in an abbreviated form.

In addition to movement in everyday life, the active break should loosen up the learning atmosphere and increase the ability to concentrate. After the short break, it is easier to follow the rest of the event with increased attention. For lecturers: right in the middle, instead of just being there!

From students for students

Ideally, the offer is made “by students for students”. We are not necessarily looking for sports professionals with extensive licenses for the implementation, but rather sports-enthusiastic & motivated students who want to be part of the project.
You haven't gained any experience in this regard? Do not panic - a training course, including tips and exercise examples for correct implementation, is mandatory for all trainers beforehand. Your advantage: Soft skills such as didactic and methodical communication skills, presentation in front of a large group or your own health awareness can be promoted in a playful way.

Participate. Switch off. Breathe. Start again!
