Tutoring Laboratory Experts on a visit to the USA
On 19-28 May 2023, the Tutoring Laboratory’s Experts operating within the KUL Centre for Academic Didactics: Prof. Urszula Paprocka-Piotrowska, Prof. Ewa Domagała-Zyśk, Dr Klaudia Martynowska, Dr Aleksandra Krauze-Kołodziej, Dr hab. Artur Bartnik and Dr Andrzej Gładysz together with Paulina Liszka - the Centre's representative and Education Department employee, made study visits to the Center for Teaching and Learning at Stanford University and the Center for
Teaching and Learning at the University of California, Berkeley.
During the numerous meetings, the academic and administrative staff of KUL had the opportunity to learn about modern teaching methods, including tutoring methods, used at both universities. They also learned about the latest technologies and how to implement them, and had the opportunity to talk to students who work with the CTL at Stanford University as tutors for their colleagues. The ways to implement tutoring methods they learned will certainly allow for efficient and effective implementation of tutoring at our university and have influenced the development of the KUL Centre for Academic Didactics.
Special thanks for the kind reception and fruitful discussions go to Dr Cassandra Horii - Vice-R|ector for Education and Director of the CTL, Dr Gloriana Trujillo -
Director of the CTL at Stanford University and Dr Jenae Cohn - Director of the CTL at the University of California, Berkeley.
Study visits are part of the project 'Didactic excellence of universities' under the Operational Programme Knowledge Education Development co-financed by the European Social Fund (grant application number POWR.03.04.00-00-P023/21).
