At the invitation of the German Sport University, Play Fair Code CEO Severin Moritzer was to host a "Sports Integrity" workshop as part of the University’s Sports Management Master's programme in Cologne this April. However, since the current situation made a regular face-to-face lecturing impossible, both the Sport University and the Play Fair Code entered new territory and switched the event into a "digital classroom".

Integrity workshop 2.0 - Virtual seminar for the German Sport University

The longterm partnership with the German Sport University Cologne alongside several international projects recently led to the involvement of the Play Fair Code into the curriculum of the Master's degree programme in Sport Management. As an external lecturer, Severin Moritzer should bring the students up to date on current issues and developments in the field of sports integrity.

Facing the current, complete cancellation of in-class lectures at all German universities, the Sport University and the Play Fair Code mutually decided to transform the planned seminar into a webinar and to virtually complete lectures and case studies.

While the Play Fair Code ensured the short-term adaptation and redesign of the teaching materials, the Sport University established all technical conditions for the “digital classroom” on the Webex platform.

Severin Moritzer finally welcomed 30 international students from Germany, the USA, Bulgaria, Korea, England, Russia, Mexico, Cyprus and Ecuador to his online course.

The workshop and format turned out to be a real success and opened up interesting new opportunities and perspectives for the future activities for both the Sport University and the Play Fair Code.

Our special thanks go to Dr. Kirstin Hallmann from the Institute of Sport Economics and Sport Management at the German Sport University Cologne for her organization and her technical support. Many thanks also of course to all students for their attention and cooperation.
