Mission and implementation of tutoring
Tutoring is a permanent monitoring and support mission for students in order to facilitate their integration into university life and their access to information on the world of work. As such, the tutoring mission has several aspects, including:
- The informative and administrative aspect which takes the form of reception, orientation and mediation;
- The pedagogical aspect which takes the form of support for learning, the organisation of the student’s personal work and assistance in the construction of his or her training path;
- The methodological aspect, which takes the form of an introduction to university working methods for individuals and groups;
- The technical aspect which takes the form of advice on the use of educational tools and materials;
- The psychological aspect which takes the form of stimulating the student and motivating him/her to pursue his/her training path;
- The professional aspect which takes the form of helping the student to develop his or her professional project.
Tutoring is organized by the higher education institution for the benefit of first-year undergraduate students. The institution is required to inform students about the tutoring system in place.
The tutoring mission is carried out by the teacher-researcher working within the institution. If necessary, students enrolled for master’s or doctoral degrees within the institution may be called upon to carry out the tutoring mission, under the responsibility of a teacher-researcher in charge of tutoring.
The tutor is subject to periodic evaluation by the training area team and the head of department. As such, it is required to submit an activity report every three (3) months. In assessing the tutor’s activity, the degree of student satisfaction is taken into account. The results of the evaluation will result in the renewal or cancellation of the commitment.
