Tutoring guidance developed
by P2P working group
The guidelines that follow are based on the socio-cognitive model and on Soresi/Nota studies at Padua University, Italy. The material produced is not intended as a code of standards of conduct to be applied rigidly, but wants to act as a st imulus for reflection and personal paths that lead to a change in the communication style, resulting in an improvement of the educational activity. There are various dimensions that contribute to increase not only academic success, but also the ability of personal and social adjustment, and, in a single expression, the “quality of life” of the people. It is important to understand the variables that affect the development of the following skills: self-assessment of knowledge, strengths and weaknesses; self-efficacy; deal effectively with new, difficult, frustrating or rewarding situations (Coping); initiate and manage effective interactions, know behavioral styles, but also the prejudices and stereotypes characterizing educational and social interaction (social skills); make effective decisions (decision Making).
