Skip to 0 minutes and 4 secondsHello, welcome to the final week of this course. This week contains several short case studies about different challenges students face in their student assistantship or other roles within the organisation. Each case study is always structured in the same way. First, an issue or challenge is introduced by students or a group of students. Second, questions are raised on how to deal with the issue at hand. Third, you have the opportunity to discuss the issue or challenge. And Fourth, the students will present the solution or approach they have taken at the University of Groningen to deal with the issue or challenge in question. Like I stated in the welcome video for this course, you may select any case study you like.

  2. Second, you have the opportunity to discuss the issue or challenge.
  3. And third, the students will present the solution or approach they have taken at the University of Groningen to deal with the issue or challenge in question.
