It takes the Entire University Community to Educate Students in Becoming Academics
Development of scientific thinking is considered an essential but challenging aim of academic studies. In practice, this challenge becomes evident when students begin preparing their theses. Therefore, proper guidance combined with suitable guidance methods are needed. Based on students’ genuine necessities, a new collaborative model to implement guidance for students was developed at the Open Science Centre, Library at University of Jyväskylä, Finland. The model is constructed of three intertwined principles: 1) strengthening student agency, 2) producing diverse but explicit open access e-learning material and 3) cooperation across all academic guidance units.
