Let’s Talk About Series
LTA series invite you to come, listen and contribute to an open discussion with Unicult2020 Faculty and notable guest speakers who share their diverse experience, perspectives, struggles, personal and career accomplishments with each other and the students in an informal framework. The format of LTA series encourages participants to contribute to the discussion sharing their knowledge and ideas. Therefore, by the end of the meeting everyone could have learned something new from each other.
RESEARCH & MAPPING
UNICULT2020 Subprogram: THE EUROPEAN CAPITALS OF CULTURE IN FOCUS
The Mentoring process is described as a developmental process - dynamic and unique to each student.
Two weeks online and during the two-weeks summer school, you will be able to meet your Mentors and schedule the mentoring sessions which will take place during the Advisory hours. A week before the program starts in Rijeka, you will connect to your Mentor online to prepare and develop your project. After the program in Rijeka or Osor are over, you will follow up on your project with your mentor online for an additional week.
The mentoring process focuses on:
Project Development (helps the mentee achieve specific skills sets in order to develop his/her project, add value to the organization and progress);
Goal Setting/Career Planning (helps the mentee identify his/her professional and personal goals, as well as to identifya long-term career path);
Problem Solving (helps the mentee develop cognitive skills in order to strengthen the mental process of discovering, analyzing and solving problems to overcome obstacles)
Networking (helps the mentee expand his/her professional connections and possible collaborations and partnerships at an international level).
THE MENTORING PLAN – FOR MENTEES
1 THE MATCHING PROCESS
The matching between mentees and mentors will be made after students send the filled Mentee Application Form containing details regarding the education, background, expectations and goals of each participant at the programme.
The evaluation of the Mentee Application Form and the matching are made upon the following criteria: background (knowledge, skills and relevance); shared interest (how the mentor can relate to the mentee work and vice versa); individual aim (to be achieved from Unicult2020 mentoring session).
The matching will be made by the organizing team in order to create the best possible match and a balanced number of mentees for each mentor.
Mentees will receive an individual e-mail containing the name and the contact of his/her mentor together with the Start-Up Package for participants (containing the Advisory hours), after which they can start approaching their mentors from 1st of June 2017 via e-mail. By the time the mentors will be contacted by mentees, they will already have received the Mentee Application Form from each person who will be advised by them during the two weeks summer school and possibly after the program.
Suggestion: feel free to introduce yourself to the mentor, ask for resources (links, videos, bibliography), subjects to think about before you arrive in Rijeka or just get to know each other.
2 THE MENTORING PROCESS.
During the two weeks summer school, students will be able to meet their mentors and schedule the mentoring sessions which will take place during the Advisory hours (to be found in the Start-Up Package sent to the participants who received the Acceptance letter to Unicult2020).
3. AFTER MATCHING AND THE END OF UNICULT2020.
We cannot guarantee a long-term mentoring relationship. It is all about your attitude and initiative. Go through this experience wisely and with enthusiasm. Engage, be curios and take notes. Speak out loud and respect each other’s opinion. Ask your mentor if he/she is willing to keep in touch with you after Unicult2020 ends.
