Job description

As a tutor you guide first or second year tutorial groups of 11 - 12 students. In a Problem-Based Learning (PBL) environment the tutor is not a teacher in the traditional sense, but a guide. You observe and analyze the group process in the background, you direct or guide if necessary, by using questions, examples or advice instead of giving instructions or information directly. You consider it a challenge to help students understand the material and to encourage their academic thinking.

You will supervise two groups a day, who will meet twice a week at fixed times. The composition of the groups changes after each block of five weeks. The first year tutorial meetings will be on Mondays and Thursdays whereas the second year tutorial meetings will be on Tuesday and Friday. Additionally, you will be a practical skills trainer during the course-related practicals. These practicals (such as an introduction to psychodiagnostics, psychological communication, training trainers) are on Wednesdays. Doing research is not part of your position.

Due to Corona measures, education may be temporarily provided online, and therefore from home. A such, it is important that you have the availability of a quiet working place and a stable internet connection.

In preparation of your duties and responsibilities, you will participate in a tutor training in August in week 33 or 34. For those familiar with PBL (as student or teacher), please inform us in your letter of application.
