Factulty Training Event on “Integrative Advising” in July 2019 in Maastricht

During the three-day training event, instructors from UCM, Leuphana and UCF will introduce two participants from each partner to the advising toolkit as part of Output 2, also offering them the opportunity to apply what they have learned by advising each other in recorded face-to-face sessions. An important aim is to prepare participant to assume the role of coaches who will introduce faculty to the innovative approaches in advising represented in the toolkit. Moreover, participants will be asked to reflect on what they have learned and provide both open feedback and a structured evaluation of the techniques. This feedback will be used by the Development Team to adjust the tools in the final phase of product development.
