At the moment, the services are closed for the public, and there are NO workshops held in person.
We try to organise another online workshops for this semester. As soon as we have fixed dates and a modus operandi, we will get in touch via e-Mail or inform you below.

Thanks for your understanding.
And stay healthy!

To support residence tutors, we offer workshops to improve their skills in intercultural communication. At the same time, this is a good occasion to get to know other tutors.  

The workshop is based on the intercultural guidelines (in German), the Munich Student Union introduced in 2012.

For tutors it is mandatory to participate in one of these workshops at least once. That's why there are normally several dates per semester. 

Workshops are offered in cooperation with the Intercultural counseling services (LMU Munich), thus they are especially suited for tutors' needs and queries. 

Workshops are also open for house speakers ("Haussprecher/Haussprecherinnen").

workshop dates for the summer semester 2020

Due to the special situation, there are no fixed dates or terms for the workshops.
As soon as these are fixed, we'll get back to you via e-mail.

Thanks for your understanding.

contents of the workshops

What is important if many people from different countries live together? What can I as a tutor/house speaker do to promote a good social climate in the students halls' of residence? What role should I take in conflicts?

The aim of the workshop is to enhance intercultural competence of the tutors and house speakers of the Studentenwerk. Participants will develop ideas for a enlarged intercultural working and living together, and discuss together about handling possible conflicts in the students halls of residence. Simulations, practices, and real live cases will be other methods used in the  workshop.

Besides, the workshop gives an opportunity to meet other tutors, share ideas and best practices about how to being a tutor, or to share possibilities for events and programs, and how to get people to participate etc.

The workshop will be interactive. Participants will be asked to share their experiences and their ideas actively.
