Starting well into the Semester - Kick-off workshop

[Translate to English:] Studium2

In order to be able to plan and shape your semester with focus and clarity, it is important to know where you stand – literally and metaphorically.

  • Where am I at right now?

  • What nourishes and supports me?

  • What potential challenges do I face?

In this 1 1/2-hour workshop, you will have the opportunity to exchange ideas with a group of colleagues and get a clear picture of which factors are important for you to consider right now and how you can start the new semester in the best possible way.

We will work out individual semester maps together and you will learn some simple embodiment exercises that will help you to ground yourself and to move with ease through student life.

Limited places. Please register on the events page of the Student Counselling program for the semester kick-off workshop “Starting Together”.

When:                 Wednesday, March 9, 2022, 3:00 – 4.30 PM

Where:                TC.4.05

Facilitators:        Christine Leitl-Kovacic & Daniela Razocher
