A successful and meaningful induction week - even online?
"Due to a large international student population, the induction week for the new first-year students of ASIS (International Academy of Avans University) had to be 100% online.
This was a big challenge, because how do you ensure involvement and motivation both socially and academically from behind a laptop screen, especially when you have nearly 250 students spread around the world?
Well, we succeeded by offering a varied programme together with Edumundo in which students took part in all kinds of challenges in order to earn HE College Coins. They competed in 72 different teams taking part in a business simulation. And all this under the enthusiastic and very pleasant guidance of Edumundo's Claudio!
The dynamics created during the induction week exceeded expectations! Students were incredibly engaged and participated fanatically in all of the assignments, individually, and at group level. There was also room to add spontaneous extra challenges here and there, which resulted in even more interaction and fun.
So yes, a good induction week and all online! Thanks to Edumundo!"
