GUIDED SELF-ORGANIZED LEARNING: PROCEDURES FOR A SAFE FLIGHT
The metaphor of creating a safe flight for the team (and the team coach) in the flying rocket leads us to the analogy of flight safety procedures. The most important part of these procedures is pre-planned and laid down in manuals: the Education and Examination Regulations (EER), the curriculum planning, the module descriptions and this Educational Handbook.
Coping with incidents and situations
In team entrepreneurial educational practice not every flight goes according to the flight plan and the procedures. In the case of Team Academy we created some ‘procedures for (un)expected situations. The possibilities and the related ‘institutions to be addressed/procedures’ are summed up:
- questions, remarks, feedback, needs for clarification on planning and curriculum:
- the documents on curriculum, planning and related subjects can be found on Google Classroom;
- your coach is (mostly) able to answer questions. If necessary, the answer is sought by consulting the Program Manager of a Lab (responsible for the curriculum planning).
- questions, remarks, feedback, needs for clarification on team learning, the team process, team organization/results, the relation between theory & practice, team entrepreneurship, the playing field and the team process:
- step 1: the team, using the information on Google Classroom;
- step 2: the team coach, clarifying and, when necessary, connecting to coordinator for Team Performance (a member of the Curriculum Team) or staff.
- questions, remarks, feedback on substantiation assignments:
- step 1: the field expert of team coach (dependent of the subject)
- step 2: when the answer is not clear or unsatisfactory, the team entrepreneur can:
– consult the team coach
– contact the Examinations Board through an e-mail to the secretary of the Examinations Board
- step 3: when there is still no satisfying solution: filing an official ‘objection’ to the Examinations Board through the secretary. The procedure on how to do this is to be found on Google Classroom.
- in case of an unsatisfactory or incorrect decision of the Examinations Board
- step 1: request explanation (consult your team coach);
- step 2: file an appeal to the Board of Appeals for Examinations of Team Academy. The procedure on how to do this is to be found on Google Classroom.
- in case of an unsatisfactory or incorrect decision of the Board of Appeals for Examinations:
- step 1: ask for explanation (consult your team coach);
- step 2: file an appeal to the National Commission for Appeals Higher Education (seek the advice of the secretary of the Board of Appeals for Examinations).
- questions, remarks, feedback, needs for clarification on Team Academy:
- consult your team coach;
- address the relevant staff member (this can often be done by just asking for ‘a moment to sit down’);
- file a formal complaint to Team Academy management.
- situations with inappropriate behavior, (sexual) harassment and other situations you would like to consult on confidentially:
- the special trust counsellor: details to be found on Google Classroom.
