Special course W20: Coaching Peer Groups: learning processes in adult education (elective, 3.5 ECTS, BA & MA level)


Help beginner students to find their bearings at the English Department and earn credits. This course allows you to learn about and gain hands-on experience in leading coaching groups.

An initial workshop will familiarize you with some basic concepts, methods and tools of coaching. You will then (co)-lead coaching groups for first semester students introducing them to life at university. Master students will be able to coach small groups helping BA students with the writing process of their thesis.

In five supervision meetings you will discuss, share and reflect your experience, success and challenges as a coach with your fellow coaching students and a professional supervisor. Theoretical input on the fundamentals of coaching will be provided. We will also look at the implications of digital/hybrid universities on group dynamics and coaching processes.

The class provides essential knowledge, tools and experience relevant for both working in educational settings as well as for careers in the business world.

Target group: advanced BA and BEd students (for introducing first semester students to life at university), master students (for helping BA students with the writing process of their thesis).
