As a tutor, you guide students in decision making. Many students do not have a clear idea of what exactly they want and find it extremely difficult to make decisions. It is a challenge to act as a coach in such a process, because ultimately, the student has to make the choice their own and commit to it.

In this workshop, we use a model to illustrate the meaning of decision making and what it requires from the student and the tutor. Participants will first experience how to navigate a decision-making process in a good way. Then, based on the insights gained, a translation will be made to the tutor’s own practice.


After this workshop:

  • you will be able to go through and evaluate the different links in the decision-making process,
  • you can pay specific attention to the rational and emotional aspects and personal pitfalls when making choices,
  • you can design effective working methods that enable you to pay attention to this theme effectively in your own tutoring practice.
