Seminar “Temporary employment at NTNU – tips and tricks of the trade” for IE, NV, IV and MH faculties

Tekna NTNU and DION are organizing three workshops for four faculties on February 26 dealing with aspects of temporary employment at NTNU. You can choose between

This workshop is most relevant for PhD candidates, post doctors and other researchers.

The workshop will deal with working at Norwegian universities compared to other sectors, and give tips and tricks on what to expect when temporarily employed at NTNU.

Both Tekna NTNU and DION will also present how we can help you if you ever run into problems or dilemmas during your time here, and what to be aware of as a temporary employee.

Light refreshments will be served.

The workshop is open to all temporary employees, also if you are not a member of Tekna.

Ski day with DION Sat 23 Feb in Bymarka

Join DION  for a cross-country ski day in Bymarka!

Where: Skistua Fjellseterveien, 7020 Trondheim
When: 23 Feb, 11:00

Plan: Meet at Skistua at 11:00, go for ski, meet back at Skistua at 15:00 for some coffee and a chat all together 🙂 . After we will depart on the bus back to the city centre.

Busses run regularly from Kongens Gate, or you can make your own way there.
Those who need to rent skis can do so from Skistua.
When we get there we will split into groups, probably depending on skill level, but just so that we are not too many people all skiing around the place.
For absolute beginners we have a kind volunteer to help you learn.
For those from ‘OK’ to expert, just come along for the social and the chance to improve or show off 😉

DION will cover coffee after the event.

If you are a competent skier and would like to help instruct or organise a group of people please let us at DION know individually. We would really welcome any supervision and help!
