Kick-off Days for your council year!

Do you need help starting your council year? Every year, LOF organises inwerkdagen or kick-off days where different courses are offered to guide you as smoothly as possible through your council year.

 

During and between the courses, there will be room to get acquainted and to learn from medezeggenschappers from all over the Netherlands. The inwerkdagen will take place in Utrecht and will be accompanied by a free lunch. This year there will be two days: 16 October & 23 October.

 

Are there no topics related to your portfolios? Would you please forward our email to your colleagues? It is also still possible to pass on your successors via this link.

Kick-off Day 1

Sunday October 16th

12:00 Meeting techniques
First, we start with a training in meeting techniques. Here, a trainer will teach you how to hold meetings as effectively and qualitatively as possible, so that you have more time to spend on certain issues. Does your council consist of international people? Then we will also go deeper into effective meetings in multilingualism.

14:00 Rights of the Medezeggenschap
Secondly, after the free lunch, we will have a training regarding your rights as a medezeggenschapper to strengthen your position in the council. During this training we will elaborate on the laws regarding Dutch educational institutions  (the Wet Hoger Onderwijs en Wetenschap).

Afterwards, we will do some fun games and activities while enjoying some refreshments. This is a great opportunity to meet medezeggenschappers from all over the Netherlands. The day will end around 17:00. 

Kick-off Day 2

Sunday October 23rd

12:00 Lobby training
Do you want to learn how best to convince your board of your opinion? Then this training is perfect for you. During this lobby training, we will further discuss a deliberate strategy of putting pressure on your board, in order to influence them in such a way that the interests of the students (or staff) are heard and granted.

 

14:00 Media training
After lunch, we will discuss how to present your opions to the outside world during a media training. The media are often on top of the student world and can make or break your point. It is therefore important to check with yourself what you do and especially what you do NOT want to say. Using a number of examples, we will prepare you for the big screen.

 

Afterwards, we will do some fun games and activities while enjoying some refreshments. This is a great opportunity to meet medezeggenschappers from all over the Netherlands. The day will end around 17:00.
