 Orientation for the new teachers

ARTS' Learning Services provides orientation that offers basics of important web-pages/teaching software and guidelines concerning teaching. Orientation is recommended for all teachers (including fixed-term and part-time teachers).

ARTS's orientation to learning services consists of following parts:

  1. BASICS:
    • Preliminary assignment to familiarize yourself with data protection and the most important documents guiding education, as well as describing your job description, on the basis of which a further orientation is determined (compare point 3)
    • Orientation meeting (see the content and the timetable below)
    • Instructions (updated 2.7.2020)
    • Filling independently the orientation quiz 
  2. TEACHERS' IMPORTANT TOOL: Participating MyCourses-training (Training calendar)
  3. ADDITIONAL INFORMATION/TRAINING (for persons responsible for major or master programme)

 

After orientation (described above) your own study coordinator helps with questions related to Learning Services. 

Orientation focuses on central points of the teachers' work:
