president, the general manager and the vice president for teaching and learning
welcome new members of UOC staff
Fifteen of our colleagues were at Tibidabo for a welcome session hosted
by the president, Josep A. Planell,
the general manager, Antoni Cahner,
and the vice president for teaching and
learning, Carles Sigalés, on Monday 21 October. These
sessions are held once a month for people who have recently been awarded
long-term or open-ended contracts.
Having welcomed them all to the
UOC, the president spoke to them about our student-centrededucational model and the guidance
and support it provides for lifelong
learning, while explaining how societal
impact is an important part of our mission.
There was also time to talk about
the UOC’s strategy for the next few
years, focusing on growth, our drive
towards globalization, and our
desire to contribute positively to
the changes our world is experiencing.
Finally there was a question and
answer session, in which our new colleagues shared their thoughts with the
president, the general manager, and the vice president, who addressed the
points raised there and then.
This event is part of a larger induction process, which has three
other stages: a face-to-face induction; a self-induction (involving exploration
of the IntraUOC induction page, UOC Welcome game, and training on occupational
risk prevention); and a fully funded free course, so as to experience what it’s
like to study at the UOC.
There is also an institutional
session given by the general manager twice a year, and yearly face-to-face
welcome sessions for new teaching staff.
We’d like to extend all of you a
warm welcome to the UOC, we wish you every success!
