QTraining7 for Nickel | 19-21 & 26-28 May, 2023
QTraining for Nickel is an internal 2-week training program for Nickel, the intermediate tutorial of QWorld. The main aim of the program is to train mentors and instructors who will do mentoring and lecturing later on QNickel workshops organized by their groups, by the other QCousins, or by QWorld.
In the content of the workshop, a mock workshop will be organised for QNickel, Instructor and Mentor candidates will be asked to rate the instructor candidates, answer questions and create questions for notebooks via Canvas. Candidates who successfully complete the workshop will be entitled to receive a diploma by taking part in a real workshop.
Each participant of this program should commit to accepting the invitation of being a mentor or lecturer in the QNickel workshops: being a mentor in at least two QNickel workshops or being a lecturer of three different sections in one or more QNickel workshops until the end of 2023.
