student2student student2student student2student is an offer for students to get counselling from experienced students. It offers both specific and general types of counselling that can help the student make a thesis statement, make the literature search more efficient, develope oral and written skills and so much more. A safe place with room for any questions That is how Bjarne Lind Christensen, Project manager at the Learning Commons, would describe the essence of student2student service. The counselling is from students who know the different challenges you may run into as a student, and that generates security for the students who need counselling. It can be a relief to have it confirmed that you are not alone and that other students experience the same challenges, Bjarne elaborates.
“The peer-to-peer concept makes it a very safe place for students to ask questions and to get assistance with assignments” – Simon Jensen, Student Counsellor.
Profundity first Simon Jensen student counsellor at student2student says that when helping the students who ask for counselling it is important to help them prepare an assignment with substance; for example this can be done by applying Bloom’s taxonomy, or the Pentagram model. The student counsellor cannot tell the student which theory is the most academically relevant but the student counsellor can talk to the student about how he or she can efficiently apply theory and method. Furthermore the student counsellor can discuss colloquial language vs. academic language, which can raise the academic quality to a great extent. An opportunity for discussion Anna Lund Jepsen, lecturer and head of studies at Business Economics at SDU, recommends other teachers direct their students to student2student. She believes it is a great opportunity for the students to get common guidance – something that the teacher may not always have the time to give the students. student2student must be spread out for all students So far Student2student is only established at SDU in Odense. It is however possible for all students at SDU to get counselling over e-mail. So far courses have been started in Slagelse and Esbjerg, but the desire is for student2Student to be available for all students at the SDU.
