The postgraduate mentoring programme “TUTOR QUIRÓN”
The Department of English and German Philology at the University of
Zaragoza has been developing a Peer Mentoring Programme at the postgraduate
level during the last four academic years. We have become aware of the fact that the
student perceptions of a course are strongly associated with the service quality in
higher education institutions. In addition, due to the new degrees that have been
implemented in our university as well as the recent emphasis on the quality
assessment in higher education approaches, our students’ satisfaction and
perceptions of academic quality has become one of our main concerns.
Objectives and participants in the “TUTOR QUIRÓN” programme
The project “Tutor Quirón” seeks to better the students’ learning experiences
and provide them with additional academic support that may help them improve their
learning processes
skills and results
their time management skills
their social life at university
This mentoring programme is also a strategic area for assessing the
quality standards of the Master in Textual and Cultural Studies in English and the
PhD in English Studies. This Project counts on the participation of all the agents
2
involved in the learning process, namely the teachers and the coordinators of the MA
and PhD degrees as well as final year PhD students or recent doctors in the
Department of English and German Studies. They act as mentors and collaborate to
provide the MA and first year PhD students enrolled in the project as mentees with
the support and guidance to complete their degrees successfully. One particularly
noteworthy advantage of the project is that it fosters the students’ acquisition of a
range of professional competences which will be essential for their future academic
and work life.
Why enrol in the “TUTOR QUIRÓN” programme?
On the one hand, the MA students may benefit from this programme and be
advised by an individual mentor with whom they will hold regular meetings to
elaborate a study plan and receive help and guidance about any problem they may
encounter in this new academic stage. MA students are also encouraged to
participate actively in the academic and social activities organised within the
programme (see TRIP Sessions, Research Group Meetings or other activities to take
place during the academic year disseminated via institutional email or through the
Moodle webpage of the project)
On the other hand, at the PhD level, apart from offering first year students the
help of a personal mentor, we have launched the TRIP, THESIS AND RESEARCH
IN PROGRESS SEMINARS. These meetings offer students an opportunity to give
presentations or discuss aspects of their ongoing research to other postgraduates in
a friendly environment. The TRIP Seminars are aimed at helping students progress
in their research process and create a certain feeling of community and belonging
among the other students. There are three sessions every academic course in which
3
PhD students may receive very interesting feedback from their colleagues and
teachers. We welcome all the PhD and MA students to participate actively in these
TRIP sessions.
Communication channel
The project currently has its own Moodle webpage which is a useful arena for
members to share ideas and pass on information that others may find useful or
interesting. Any member can also post a message in the forum of the Project “Tutor
Quiron” in Moodle with any aspect of language/linguistics/literature/film and cultural
studies. The Moodle webpage of the project is also the channel by which notices
about the TRIP Seminars and other research/social events are circulated, so it is
important if you want to be kept informed that you are subscribed as a participant in
the project.

TRIP Profile Form Information
What is the TRIP Directory?
The TRIP Directory lists postgraduate students engaged in research in the
Department of English at the University of Zaragoza. The entries comprise the
names and research details of students currently registered for higher degrees (MA
and PhD).
Why should I complete a Profile Form?
To raise your public profile, which is beneficial in terms of future employment
and academic standing and conveys your willingness to engage with others.
By filling out this form, you provide an improved capability for PG TRIP members to
search, network and collaborate other members.
What if I’m not sure what to write?
A sample profile (Maria Perez Perez) has been completed (refer to TRIP
Documents on Moodle) to give a basic idea of what information you should provide.
Don’t worry if you’re a brand new or still unsure first year student – this form is not
written in stone; you will have future opportunities to amend and/or alter your
information if necessary.
However, if you change your mind after submitting the profile form and no
longer wish your profile to be included, please let us know.
When do I need to complete the form?
We would greatly appreciate the forms being completed and sent via email to
either Silvia Pellicer (spellice@unizar.es) or Oana Carciu (ocarciu@unizar.es).
Where will the information on my form be posted?
The information you provide will be made available in the Moodle page of the
Proyecto Tutor Quiron and wherever it is appropriate to do so for project members
(i.e. maybe the web page of the department, other suggestions are welcome).
