Summer Courses Regulations. Summer 2015

     2014 October, 20th

    The Summer Courses Foundation of the University of the Basque Country is located in Miramar Palace, San Sebastian, and it is in charge of the Summer Courses and European Courses that will reach their XXXIV and XXVIIth editions respectively in 2015.

    Addressed to University students, professionals and general public, Summer Courses provide annually a renewed opportunity for open and lifelong learning, as well as for reflection about the world where we live, in constant change, to contribute, as far as we can, to the creation of a desirable better world.

    To achieve the aim of approaching the training needs of all citizens and to compile better everybody's effort, the Rector and his team have the intention of integrating the organization of all summer activities in Bizkaia and Alava Campuses through the Summer Courses Foundation of the University of the Basque Country.

    Basic criteria for the running of Summer Courses is, in any case, sustainability, a fundamental criterion when selecting and determining the scope of the offer of activities to develop in other Campuses. Therefore, the specific resources of the territory where the activity could be organized will be essential.

    We must insist on the need to prevent any risk of deficit. Therefore, when one month before any activity, specific expenses exceed the income, directors will have to

    • provide guarantee of specific additional economic support to avoid deficit.
    • proceed to corresponding reduction of specific expenses.

    .


    The regulations presented here correspond to economic and organizational criteria. The obvious aim is to organize the Courses we can, with the resources available.

    The experience of many years and its contrast with other Summer courses, leads us to constantly update the regulations, which is why we please ask that they be read carefully.

    The organization permits exceptions for reasons of adaptation to the characteristics of each particular activity. These exceptions must be agreed upon with the Course Administration; they must have, in each case, the corresponding financial backing commitment and be included in a document that the proposer, the financing entity and the Course Administration will sign.

    The proposals that do not respect the above will not be submitted to the Programme Committee for consideration.

    In this edition, we have planned the organization of Courses, Seminars, Schools, Professional Conferences, Workshops, Conferences and Meetings that will take place, provisionally, between June 15th and September 10th with a break in August (31 July-17 August).

    Proposals must be sent before November 21st to the following e-mail address: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

    It is the Programme Committee’s responsibility to propose the Programme of each edition to the Organizing Committee. However, in case of non-compliance of the regulations, and if the number of people registered does not reach the minimum established, the Course Administration can decide to suspend the corresponding activities.

          REGULATIONS - MANAGEMENT OF COURSES, SEMINARS, MEETINGS, SCHOOLS, CONFERENCES AND WORKSHOPS

          1.-    The Director of a Course, Seminar, Meeting, School, Conference or Worshop is in turn the co producer, in collaboration with the Summer Course organization, which means the activity must be monitored from the beginning to end.

          2.-    The Director is responsible for:

          a)    The Programme’s adjustment to the regulations, in accordance with the Summer Course Administration.
          b)    Sending the definitive Programme and the list of teaching staff data previously confirmed before February 26th.
          The Director must submit a basic schematic of the participating teaching staff’s solicited interventions with the definitive Programme.

          3.- The Director who does not live in the venue of the course or nearby will have an accommodation and living expense budget supplied by the Summer Course from the day before the activity’s commencement until its end.

          4.- The Directors of Courses, Seminars, Schools or Conferences who fulfil section 2 entirely will receive a net compensation of 240 gross euros for each day of the activity. This compensation includes travel and organizational costs prior to the activity, as well as the costs of teaching staff monitoring during the activity (payment of special invitations for lunch, …).

          5.- Coherence of the thematic content. It is sometimes difficult for the individual who assumes the direction of the Course, Seminar, School, etc., to achieve coherence and coordination of the general thematic content. To make this task easier and achieve said objective, various recommendations will be provided, not excluding:

          a)    Reducing the number of teachers by assigning more classes to each.
          b)    Plan the content of the Course, Seminar, School, etc., in advance, in function of the thematic development, the students to which it is directed at and not the teaching staff that potentially could participate.

          e)    It is recommended that the Director or one of the people collaborating with the Administration carry out a summary of the essential questions that have been dealt with, the subjects not discussed or debatable subjects, etc., during the length of the activity. The Round Table (if there is one) can be used so that the Director can present said summary and so that the teaching staff can discuss them between themselves, respond to the questions of those assisting, etc.  The Round Table must allow an improvement in the group’s vision of the subject dealt with while promoting participation of the students and teaching staff.

          6.- Diffusion of the Summer Course Programmes will be done in March, which means that the Programme with the speakers´ information, must be notified before February 26th. Unforeseen modifications after this date, must be communicated to the Teaching Staff Section of the Summer Courses for their inclusion in the final programme.

          7.-    The Administrative Team of the Courses can decide not to hold a Course or Seminar if unforeseen non-compliance of the regulations occurs or in the case where the number of enrolees does not reach the stipulated minimum.

          8.-    The Director will collect a summary of four pages maximum from each teacher and will send them, in a single document to the Course Secretariat at least 15 days before the initiation of the activity. Each summary will have a heading containing the date of the conference, title and name of the speaker. Likewise, a copy of the transparencies and the complementary appropriate material that the teaching staff will use will be given to the Course Secretariat, one week before the activity is to be held as a minimum. (The summaries and transparencies will be made available to the students by Summer Courses through the documentation to be handed out at the beginning of the activity, or through the Webpage).
