Study Coaching Trajectory
Full course description
Through the Study Coaching Trajectory students are supported in the development of academic competencies as described in the profile of the programme.
The activities in the SCT follow a returning cycle of goal-setting, planning of activities and
reflection on study-activities.
a) Goal setting: based on a self-assessment and an identification of the competencies that (s)he wants to
develop, the student develops a personal development plan (PDP)
b) Planning: based on the goals the student makes a planning of study-activities and possible resources.
c) Reflection: The student describes the influence of these activities on the development of the competencies.
The acquired or developed competencies are proven. All these elements are part of an individual e-portfolio.
The context of the competence development is "the ideal job" after graduation.
Each student is supported by two coaches (one academic coach from the ERD department and one
professional coach from the L&D field). Furthermore, students work in a buddy-system to support each other
during their competence development.
Assessment: The e-portfolio is assessed by a team of assessors (general criterion: is competence
development shown? and are students able to reflect on their development?). This team of assessors
includes at least one representative of the professional field. Furthermore, students need to give a pitch about
their developed competencies.
The goal of the Study Coaching Trajectory is:
1) to support the development of academic competencies and
2) to foster reflection on the development op these competencies.
As such, it leads specifically to the development of learning skills, self-regulation and self-management skills.
Another goal is to prepare students for the labour market after graduation.
