Workshop Coaching Skills
Monday 2 December 2019 | 13.30 – 15.30

UM Career Services helps you to support your students with topics such as employability and well-being. This module is designed to train staff mentors, coaches and tutors (from bachelor, master or honours programmes) on coaching and mentoring skills. In this 2-hour workshop we will explore the main differences between teaching, mentoring and coaching. We will take stock of the main competencies and skills used in coaching and explore a coaching model. But first and foremost you will get room to practise your coaching skills with real-life examples of situations that matter to you.

Introduction of Jupyter Notebooks
Monday 2 December 2019 | 14.00 – 16.00

Are you interested in improving your students’ understanding of course content? Do you want to increase student engagement with material and their participation in class? Would you like to make concepts more meaningful and relevant to students’ diverse interests? Then this workshop on Jupyter Notebooks is perfect for you! Jupyter Notebook is an open-source web application that allows you to create and share documents that contain live code, equations, visualizations and explanatory text. Through a series of scientific and educational use cases and a hands-on session we will illustrate how you, as a teacher, can use Jupyter notebooks to increase your students’ engagement, participation, understanding, performance and preparation for their career.

Managing Group / Team Dynamics
Tuesday 17 December 2019 | 09.30 – 13.30

Why do some student groups/teams run smoothly and efficiently while others seem to get stuck in miscommunication, conflict and frustration? Most of the time, the answers can be found in the group or team dynamics. These are the relationships and often unconscious behavioural patterns between group members that impact the team’s conduct and performance. Now how do you work with these dynamics in a way that enhances team collaboration and performance? What are the main challenges that you are confronted with and how do you manage them? And what do you need to know about yourself in managing these processes? If you are a member of UM teaching staff, working with groups or teams of students, be it in tutorials, projects, skills sessions, internships or in lab work, or if you are planning to do so in the near future, this workshop might be of interest to you. The workshop is highly interactive, experiential and practical.
