GSiK ist ein deutschlandweit einmaliges Gemeinschaftsprojekt von zehn Institutionen aus sechs Fakultäten der Universität Würzburg. Seit WS 08/09 schafft es ein differenziertes und wissenschaftlich fundiertes Lehrangebot zum Erwerb interkultureller Kompetenz. Ziel des GSiK-Programms ist der Erwerb interkultureller Kompetenz als Schlüsselqualifikation. Dies geschieht einerseits durch die Schulung von grundlegenden Sozial- und Kommunikationskompetenzen sowie andererseits durch den "Blick über den Tellerrand" des eigenen kulturellen Umfelds und des eigenen Studienfachs. Es besteht die Möglichkeit, sich für besuchte Seminare und Vorträge ein GSiK-Zertifikat bzw. ein erweitertes GSiK-Zertifikat ausstellen zu lassen.
University teaching - and the student teaching by tutors is no exception - is a very demanding activity for which it is important to be prepared. The challenge of advising young students in a goal-oriented manner is just as great as that of mentoring. Through the professionalised training in the programme KOMPASS, the tutors and mentors are didactically and methodically prepared for their work. A certificate is issued for participating in the basic training course. Tutors and mentors can also acquire a certificate which proves their extended training.
