The role of the tutor is different from the role of a lecturer. As a lecturer you focus on subject matter and skills. As a tutor, you help students find their way and feel at home at the university. You pay attention to motivation, the development of study skills, and skills that you need to be effective on the labour market or in research. Tutors also help students with making choices, both on a personal level (what suits you, how do you see the future), and in terms of the programmes and directions that the university offers.

In this workshop we work on the following skills:

  • Creating a safe learning environment.
  • The art of coaching students using questions.
  • Putting the ball in the student’s court: how do you stimulate self-responsibility?
  • And what are the boundaries of your role?

Afterwards, you will know what you need to fulfil your role as a tutor in a conscientious way.

Suitable for
