The Koç School Back to School Development Fest, which allowed all Koç faculty and staff to take advantage of various professional and personal development opportunities took place between August 26th and 28th.
With the main theme of “Being Connected,” the festival was designed with insight from various stakeholders’ and feedback mechanisms from the previous academic year. Led by the Institutional Planning and Evalutation Department, about 500 Koç School faculty and staff participated in 40 simultaneously planned workshops in 89 sessions. All faculty and staff enjoyed meticulously planned team building and fun activities, while Vehbi Koç Foundation’s General Manager Erdal Yıldırım and AÇEV’s General Manager Burcu Gündüz joined the festival with inspiring speeches. The Back to School Development Fest was concluded with a General Assembly for the whole school, followed by a picnic with “street food.”
Research suggests that employees who truly contribute to each other empower their institutions in many ways. Alongside professional trainers and experts in their fields, more than 100 The Koç School employees contributed to the Festival as trainers and logistic providers in terms of content and support.
With a fun and exciting start to the academic year, The Koç School will continue holding various workshops and provide development opportunities throughout the following months.
