Doctoral Researcher Development Program

Research & Responsibility

Online Writing Group for Doctoral Candidates

This offer is unfortunately not available at the moment. For more information, please contact: infospam prevention@graduiertenakademie.uni-tuebingen.de

 

You are tired of sitting at your desk all alone? You would like to have a scheduled time slot for getting some writing done? You are looking for fellow doctoral candidates who are in the same boat? This writing group offers the opportunity to regularly meet and talk to peers, exchange ideas, talk about obstacles and learn about possible strategies to overcome them, and, last but not least, get some writing done. Together many hurdles are easier to overcome! The meetings take place weekly via ILIAS and Zoom and will be led and supported by the writing tutors of the Diversity-Oriented Writing Center.

 

Topics (depending on interest and need), e.g.:

  • The writing process
  • Feedback
  • Types of writers
  • Time management & motivation
  • Text revision
  • Getting started with writing

 

Please note that this is a bilingual writing group, i.e., we will be making use of both English and German (each person using the language they feel most comfortable with).

 

Further information, the password for the ILIAS course, etc. will be sent to all participants by email shortly after registration.

ONLINE Convincing Scientific Presentations (EN)

Register by 24.05.2024; 23:55 CET

Start: 03.06.2024; Group sessions: 18.+21.06.2024, 13:30-18:00, online - Matthias Mayer

Please note: This online course consists of two group sessions and material participants have to work on in their own time before these sessions.

Target Group
- Doctoral candidates of all disciplines

Objectives
You will train techniques in the three essential areas of convincing scientific talks:

  1. Prepare Clear Content: Many scientific presentations suffer from too little clarity and too much content. The result is a lecturer running through the slides, losing the audience at the very beginning. You should instead learn to deliver a clear presentation by setting distinct goals and finding vivid examples that make your talk memorable.
  2. Design Proper Slides: Today's leading standard for visualization in scientific presentations is Power-Point: a powerful tool, however, often poorly used. Lecturers frequently try to re-mind themselves what they wanted to say by reading their own bullets thereby facing the projection screen instead of their audience. With overfilled, graphically cluttered, visually incoherent slides they try to support their speech. Do better!
  3. Be Convincing on Stage: With your body language and spoken word stands or falls your talk. Aside valuable content you must be able to deliver it in a convincing way that motivates your audience to follow you. Many great researchers miss this chance and obligation. You will give an example of your talk, receive feedback, learn from a video recording of it, and you will know how to do better, if necessary.

Content

  • Prepare clear content: audience focus, take home message, etc.
  • How to start and end well
  • Telling a vivid story: Creating Brain Cinema
  • The Six Golden Rules of Slide Design (How many words? How many slides? What background and fonts? ...)
  • PowerPoint tech tips (slide masters, Smart Art, etc. No full introduction)
  • Body language: where to put your hands and other questions
  • Answers to your questions

Methods
Mixture of trainer input, practical exercises, participants’ presentations and discussion. Each participant will conduct a short 3-5 minutes presentation twice (an excerpt of a larger one), receive feedback by peers and trainer and learn from a video recording. The presentation will be done standing in front of the laptop, the slides being in front of the presenter on the computer screen, not behind him/her projected at a wall. This procedure has been proven working very well to create high quality feedback even in this online training scenario.

About the training
Sometimes we feel puzzled when negative emotions come up in a discussion with your scientific fellows or your doctor-father. Therefore it is of advantage to be able to detect signs of disagreements in the body language. To know about the nature, causes and typical process of conflicts will help you to act more successfully and to prevent escalation. We look at your attitudes and experiences towards conflicts and try to find solutions for actual or possible conflicts you may be faced with now or in your near academic future. During this one-day-course we concentrate on the cases you bring with you. Of course it's all confidential!

11.-12.07.2024, 9:00-15:00 Uhr, online - Dr. Angelika Wolf

Zielgruppe
- Promovierende zu Beginn der Promotion (1. Jahr)

Inhalte

Wie geht es weiter nach der Doktorarbeit? Wie finde ich Zugang zum Arbeitsmarkt – möchte ich 
dabei gerne im wissenschaftlichen Bereich bleiben, aber vielleicht nicht unbedingt zwingend an
der Universität? Und gehe ich doch lieber in die Wirtschaft?
Diesen Fragen widmet sich der zweitägige Workshop mit wechselnden Inputs und individueller
Laufbahnanalyse. Zur persönlichen Standortbestimmung ist eine Reflexion der eigenen
Vergangenheit und Gegenwart nötig, um Schritte in die Zukunft zu planen. Der Workshop regt
dazu an, in einem ersten Schritt Karriereziele selbstbewusst zu entwickeln. Dabei sollen die
eigene Biografie und persönlichen Werte nicht außer Acht gelassen werden, denn
Karriereplanung findet nicht losgelöst von privaten Zielen und der Suche nach einer
zufriedenstellenden Lebensbalance statt.
Im Laufe des Workshops werden die eigenen Ressourcen und Kompetenzen anhand von
beispielhaften Stellenausschreibungen analysiert und unter die Lupe genommen sowie passende
Präsentationsstrategien für Vorstellungsgesprächen eingeübt.

Methoden
Anhand von verschiedenen (Reflexions-) Tools, abwechslungsreichen theoretischen Inputs und
interaktiven Aufgaben und weiteren im Workshop vorgestellten Planungsinstrumenten gehen die 
Teilnehmer/innen in Einzel- und Gruppenübungen der Frage nach, wie die Zielerreichung immer 
wieder selbständig überprüft werden kann.

ONLINE - Good Scientific Practice for Supervisors (EN) Start: 21.02.2024

Register by 13.02.2024; 23:55 CET

Start: 21.02.2024; Webinar: 08.03.2024, 09:00-11:00, online - Dr. Martina Bross

Target Group
- Researchers supervising early career researchers

Please note: This course IS recognized by the Faculty of Science as a course on supervision. Researchers of the Medical Faculty should register for the specific courses of the Medical Faculty via their website. If you are unsure which course to take please make sure to contact us: info@graduiertenakademie.uni-tuebingen.de

This course consists of an asynchronous online phase via ILIAS. You should expect to work on material independently for approx. 3 hours spread over 10 days. The asynchronous phase starts on the date specified above. On this first day of the course, you will receive an email with instructions. Completing work on all of the material is required for participation in the webinar. The course finishes with a 2-hour long webinar via Zoom. The date of the webinar is specified above. The link will be sent to everyone who has completed the material the day before the webinar takes place.

Course description

For researchers, following the rules of good scientific practice is a central tenet of their work and their work ethics. Knowing and following the rules set out in the University of Tübingen’s Guidelines for Safeguarding Good Scientific Practice and the DFG Code of Conduct on Research Integrity not only ensures that researchers can fulfill their obligation to the public to use resources efficiently and contribute to important developments in science and society in a reliable and integer manner. It also ensures that the working culture within the academic setting is based on mutual respect and responsibility. Especially for researchers in an early phase of their career, their supervisors and team leaders are important role models. As the DFG Code of Conduct states, researchers should be instructed and receive training on the rules of Good Scientific Practice as early in their career as possible.

In this online workshop, we will have a twofold perspective: We will refresh our knowledge of the rules as set out in the documents mentioned above, but we will also reflect on how they come into the process of doctoral supervision.

Content

  • general principles of good scientific practice
  • data/research documentation and management
  • plargiarism prevention
  • regulations for authorship
  • guidelines for supervision
  • ombudspersons and the procedure in cases of reported misconduct

ONLINE Design Thinking for Researchers (EN)

Register by 11.02.2024; 23:55 CET

19.+20.02.2024, 9:00-18:00, online - Dr. Thomas Teichler

Target Group

- Postdoctoral Researchers

Objectives

The objective of this workshop is for participants to start developing the tools and mindset for creative problem solving, required to drive innovation in any context. Applying Design Thinking in their work, researchers will be able

  • to be “systematically creative” i.e., not depend on a genius in their team but rather be able to generate the genius together from their team,
  • to communicate effectively with your PI, colleagues, professor, other researchers, and funding organisations, which is particularly helpful in interdisciplinary settings,
  • to access additional resources, as they get continuous feedback from others, and
  • to grow confidence, generate buy-in, and use time more efficiently, as they present only increments of their project, instead of “working super lonely for six months before daring to present your ‘perfect’ story for the first time to anyone”, as a former participant put it
     

Content

Participants will

  • learn to establish conditions for creative work,
  • discover the basic tenets of design thinking as an approach,
  • get to know highly effective tools of Value Proposition Design as a way to implement design thinking in the Ideation phase of the research process,
  • clarify the profiles of their target audience and create a unique Value Proposition,
  • practice a novel way of giving & receiving feedback,
  • present a clear their message with a powerful emotional impact 

Methods

The methods used in the workshop are highly interactive and participant driven. They combine personal work, experiential learning exercises, dialogue, facilitated work in groups of varying size, co-creation, and reflection.
We create a uniquely open and trustful atmosphere in our workshops, where participants are encouraged to openly share their experiences, to learn from each other, and to support each other in a benevolent manner.
Learning proceeds on three levels: (1) We provide a theoretical overview. (2) Participants go through powerful experiences in individual and group exercises, which are discussed and debriefed together in a safe environ-ment. (3) Finally, by reflecting together, participants draw lessons from the interaction process in the class, increasing self-awareness and learning about good practices.

Target Group
- Postdoctoral Researchers

Objectives

The objective of this workshop is to enable you to
a) develop an idea for a research project into a sound work programme,
b) to match it to the requirements of the funding programme, and
c) to facilitate the communication with the reviewer by presenting your complex research in an easy-to-understand way.

To achieve this, we will try out the RaumZeit toolkit for designing and communicating your research project convincingly by working on your own research project. This may be a new idea for a real grant proposal or your current research project. Besides, you will obtain a lot of background information on different funding programmes, evaluation processes and potential pitfalls.

Content

Session 1: Funding programmes and how to read the documents
Session 2: Develop your idea into a work plan
Session 3: Communicat your project convincingly
Session 4: Impact and Budget

 

Methods

This is an online workshop including presentations, group work and individual work. Some "homework" will be provided for those, who want to use the time between the sessions to work on their grant proposal. There will be the opportunity to obtain some feedback - either in the group or individually - on the homework.

Career Development through Research Funding (EN)

Register by 12.06.2024; 23:55 CET

20.-21.06.2024, 09:00-17:00, Venue: Seminar room 246, Lothar-Meyer Bau - Dr. B. Elija Bleher

Please note: The course consists of a joint workshop on 20 June and individual coaching slots on 21 June. 

Target Group

  • Advanced Doctoral Candidates
  • Postdoctoral Researchers

Objectives
In the German and European science system, third-party funding is becoming increasingly important both for scientific institutions and their continued existence as well as for individual career development. Often, however, such third-party funding is acquired without systematic strategic planning and without taking into account the potentials and goals of the researchers involved. This workshop therefore chooses a fundamentally different approach by focusing on the previous experiences and respective plans of the participants. In this respect, it pursues the goal of opening up strategies for obtaining funding to the participants against the background of their individual plans and interests in terms of content, and to mirror their plans externally through a coaching offer.

Content

  • Individual status analysis & prospection: Analysis of status quo & goals
  • Basics of the German and European science system
  • Further development of the scientific career: Typology of research funding
  • Dealing with program prose, project planning and change of perspective
  • Research funding - do's and don'ts of the application & review perspectives.
  • On the 2nd day of the event: Individual discussion in short coaching sessions.

Some more content information may be added.

Target Group
- Postdoctoral Researchers of all stages

Objectives

  • Foster recognizing the importance of body language and voice in the context of science communication. 
  • Showing that giving a lecture rigidly according to script is not sufficient 
  • Getting to know and to experience the rhetorical potential of physical and vocal presence 
  • Exploring and developing one's own performative skills for science communication. 

Content

More and more events that require persuasion are now taking place online: from team meetings to grant applications. Crucially, recent research has shown that some communication techniques that we have learned and successfully adapted for in-person communication do not work the same when projected on a computer screen. Thus, in order to be a successful communicator in both worlds we need to be able to adapt our rhetoric. The experience of the increased use of online formats of the last years has provided plenty of fresh material for analysis and allowed to gain new insight into key differences between persuasion in-person versus online. The aim of this course is to develop consciousness of what needs to be adapted in personal persuasion habits when the format is changed and exercise this ability under guidance of experienced trainers.  

  • Science communication as rhetorical communication situation 
  • Reflection on one’s own role as science communicator Introduction to the specifics of in-person and online presentations 
  • Ideal use of space and creation of presence in both formats 
  • Generating of social presence despite the spatial distance 
  • Inputs and exercises about persuasion and the role of body language and voice in online presentations 
  • Overview of body language and voice elements regarding presentations in presence and online 
  • Addressee orientation while presenting one’s own research 
  • Introducing the concept of live coaching 

Methods

  • Short presentations (participants have to prepare an own online presentations beforehand: 5-10 min) 
  • (Interactive) Inputs 
  • Breakout sessions 
  • Group discussions  
  • Feedback from the lectures, peer feedback and live coaching
