TNU's Academic Internet Call Center
The Call Center is an academic on-line hub providing direct and continuous communication between students and supervisors. The center is permanently staffed by Ph.D. students and teachers from the university. Communication is facilitated by email and a web-based discussion platform. The dialogue that is entered into with the student is done from the perspective that s/he is a resource person who does not experience the material from a distance but, in close collaboration with fellow students and supervisors, is active in constructing his/her own knowledge base.
The core aims of the call center are:
The academic call-center gives the participants, during the whole course, direct feedback on their participation. The call center provides a level of intensive supervision and mentoring that can not be offered by a regular program.[return to TNU's request for proposal: HP Pan European Initiative]
