This section contains information about Tutor Training 2021.
Welcome to the course to complete AYY's tutor assignments online for the year 2021! We are delighted that you have decided to tutor new students. We hope you've all been well, this spring has certainly been exceptional and AYY's tutor trainings are organized online on MyCourses.
We do not yet know with certainty the situation with orientation events and in which way teaching will be implemented in the fall. Aalto and AYY will inform you as soon as there is information. Aalto study psychologists for preparing material on e.g. online grouping of the new students, tips for wellbeing and how to present our awesome community and how to integrate the new students to our community remotely, if tutoring is happening mostly or completely online in the fall.
These assignments will be published in the beginning of June and they are due Tue 31.8.2021 at 23:59. We encourage you to complete the assignments before contacting your new students. In case you have any questions about the assignments or are unable to complete the assignments until the deadline, please contact your school's contact person responsible for new students and your tutor responsible person. Please note that there might be delays in responses from Aalto or AYY due to summer holidays.
We are organizing two Zoom-sessions where we focus on discussing the important topics of tutoring. These sessions are not mandatory but we hope you can join the discussion. The sessions are organized on:
Thu 20.5. at 16.30.-18.30. (in Finnish)
Tue 25.5. at 16.30.-18.30. (in English)
Both sessions have the same content so you can join either one or both if you want to.
You are free to share your thoughts also on the forum-page. We will be online in Zoom also in August if you have any questions, we'll let you know the times later.
We wish you a great summer and all the best with tutoring in the fall!
