Pedagogical training: Supporting student as an academic advisor (1 ECTS) in autumn 2022
This course is open for all academic advisors at Aalto University. The course is piloted in autumn 2022. There will be six school level implementations.
The aim of this course is to reinforce your competence as an academic advisor at Aalto University. We will familiarize ourselves with theories of guidance, school level practices, software and tools that support advising as well as Aalto guidance services to both students and academic advisors. Additionally, we will reflect on our own role as academic advisors, the limits of our competence, and how the focus of guidance changes in different stages of studies. You will have an opportunity to reflect on your own approach to academic advising and receive and provide peer feedback.
School level schedules and enrollments will be published latest in September 2022.

Independent work (readings, reflective essay, peer feedback) is also required for a successful completion of the course. 1 ECTS credit equals about 27 hours of work.
