Symposium: Student Qualifying Education (StuKO)

Student geeft les aan andere studenten

How can Students as Teachers gain teaching skills, improve teaching quality, and how do we recognize and value their efforts? These questions are at the heart of the StuKO (Student Qualification Education) project. On Thursday, April 6, 2023, at a symposium, we will share and discuss the first results of the project with experts and experts by experience.

What is StuKO?

StuKO stands for StudentQuality Education and is a three-year project that works to train, guide, recognize and value students who provide education in one way or another. For the quality of education, educational skills that students acquire and for the well-being of these Students as Teachers, it is important that they receive proper support in carrying out their teaching tasks. In addition, we want their efforts to be rewarded, not only financially, but also with some form of recognition (certification). 

Who is the symposium for? 

Students as Teachers, trainers, lecturers, supervisors, policy makers and interested parties who deal with Students as Teachers are welcome.
