4. EDUCATIONAL MATTERS

Overview of the spring’s events

The faculty has gone through a great number of changes over the spring. The faculty changed its name to Faculty of Educational Science when logopedia and psychology moved to the Faculty of Medicine and cognitive science and phonetics moved to the Faculty of Arts. At the same time the Institute of Educational science ceased to exist and now all students belong to the Department of Educational science.

Spring’s biggest preparement regarding the changes in the degree programs is the switching to the new program for bachelor degree. Next fall all new students will start in the same bachelor program. It will however have nine study paths which will represent the old degree programs. For example this will mean more shared classes in the basic studies.

Guideline for Hallopeds

The student union is preparing the guideline for hallopeds (student representatives in administration). As of now the plan is to abandon the current election process and in the future a selection committee named by the representative council would hold the selections based on applications.

Guide & Opinder

Links to University’s new web tools, Guide and Opinder, have been added to My studies -site (student.helsinki.fi). Guide is supposed to replace Flamma as a data bank for students, and the layout mimics the My studies -site. Opinder’s purpose is to ease communication with classmates and teachers, and you can create groups for different types of purposes. All students can now explore these new features. All of the future content hasn’t yet been developed and the new tools will be put to use in the next fall. Weboodi is also going to be replaced or at least updated, but there’s no schedule yet.

Educational committee’s sauna and grill night on Friday 19.5.

This spring’s last meeting will be a more casual event in Marjaniemi. We’ll have a sauna and a grill, and everyone will bring something to share with others. It’s a short walk to the beach (200m), so take your bathing suit with you and get ready for the first swim of the year! All who enjoy educational matters or grilling are welcome. More information in Condus’ educational committee’s Facebook-group


5. TUUTORSAFKAT

Condus organises its own tutor training session as Tuutorsafkat. This event is a bit more relaxed than the faculty’s trainings and the idea is to eat good food, get to know other tutors all the while getting useful information about tutoring. For more info go to the Facebook event.


6. HANGING OUT WITH THE TUTORS

In May there will be a bonding event for all Condus tutors. The tutors of every study path prepare a game to lead to the other tutors – to get new ideas for next autumn while getting to know each other! Time and place will be settled soon, stay tuned with Condus’ Facebook and Tutoring Committee’s group!


7. LAULUKIRJA KUNTOON! PART 2

The beloved songbook of Condus experiences a huge makeover this spring 2017 – its content will be renewed while taking notice of the old gems. The agenda is to go through the content of the book, make the necessary updates and perhaps add a few new songs. Now you have the chance to have a sat on the making the best songbook ever! Don’t worry if you weren’t present at the first meet up, welcome along anyway! More info on the Facebook event.


8. EUROPE DAY – INTERNATIONAL FLEA MARKET

On Europe Day 9.5. Condus organises a springlike international flea market together with Humanisticum and HYY Environmental Committee! Come along to Kaisaniemi park at 14-18 to either sell your own stuff, have a look at others’ or just get to know new wonderful people. The organisers will also be selling some treats! You can find more info on the Facebook-event.
