Aspects of the Tandem Program

Kick-off event - for everyone interested in Tandem

As soon as you decide to join Tandem this semester, create a partner search in stud.ip. Note: Either both partners should want credit points or neither should want them. Whether you have found a partner or not, join one of the online sessions via BigBlueButton at the beginning of the semester. Here the entire program is explained. Tandems who want to earn credit points are signed up in stud.ip by the coordinator.

Tandems with credit points also participate in the following activities:

Weekly Tandem Meetings and Blog Entries

The core of your Tandem! You will meet with your language partner weekly for at least 90 minutes and document your activities in a Wordpress blog in stud.ip. Each Tandem has its own blog, and occasionally you read and comment on the other Tandems' blogs.

Learning Skills Counseling

The learning skills counseling session helps to structure language learning efficiently and to clear up any problems that may arise. Each Tandem meets with the coordinator for a counseling session early in the semester. The coordinator is also available to you via e-mail at all times.

Workshops

The Tandem program includes two required workshops on themes such as setting learning goals, correcting errors, self evaluation and other aspects of autonomous learning. These online workshops are on Friday 4 - 7 p.m.

Closing Event

To celebrate their progress the entire group meets on the last Friday afternoon of the semester and each Tandem gives a short presentation.

Evaluation

Every Tandem has a BigBlueButton meeting with the coordinator at the end of the semester. At that time each participant evaluates their own learning progress and also their experience with the Tandem program as a whole.
