As always, mobile phones should be either switched off or put in silent mode when in class and during study visit presentations or briefings. It is very rude to answer a call when in the middle of a class or a presentation.
Laptops may be brought into classrooms, however, lids should be closed during class if the lecturer has not specified otherwise. If you want to make notes, do it on the lecture notes that are handed out at every class. If we sit in a classroom with stationary computers, make sure to turn the screen to the side so you can’t hide behind it.
If you wish to record parts of the class using mp3 or video camera, or if you wish to take pictures in class, please ask for the approval of your lecturer first.
