Welcome to Academic Writing in English, Fall


Description:

Good Academic Writing is vital to the success of any academic who wants to further his or her career. As an academic, it is expected that you publish and present. That is just the way it is.

It can be intimidating to write well in a non-native language and feel confident. This course will provide you with the skills you need to move forward confidently in your English academic writing. In addition to in-class time, you will get 1-1 time with me, work in small groups and have an online platform to ask questions and have them answered. I will provide you with infdividual feedback that will strengthen your skills. 

We will look at:

  • Publication Process
  • What editors look for (based on instructor’s correspondence with editors)
  • Peer Review Process
  • Writing a letter to the editor (participants given tips from editors that instructor has contacted)
  • Questions to ask yourself before you submit
  • Plagiarism
  • Punctuation for Academic Writing
  • Effective Academic Writing
  • Combining sentences and ideas smoothly
  • Academic Words and Phrases
  • Parts of a Journal Article (With tips on how to make each part effective)
  • How to evaluate journal requirements
  • Differences between British, American and Global English: How to know which to use

As your instructor, I bring an extensive background in Academic Writing instruction and editing. I taught Academic Writing at La Sierra University in Riverside, California and have taught this course extensively here in Denmark. I am committed to making this whole process easier for you and can’t wait to work with you.

Welcome to Management of Research and Development

Description: The course has the two-fold purpose to prepare Ph.D. students for their future jobs by providing insight in how to carry out R&D projects in an organizational context and how to manage their own projects. A graduate from an Engineering PhD Program will typically become either a member or a manager of teams or departments working with innovation and research/development tasks. Not only will she/he be expected to be able to contribute scientifically and technically; but will also be responsible for initiating research and development projects, for managing and working with other scientists, engineers and technicians, and for establishing a constructive co-operation with other departments in the organization. This course aims at preparing the PhD students for this situation. The course will teach theory and practical methods for development proficiency in these subject-areas.

Welcome to PBL and facilitation skill


Description:

PBL (problem based, project organized learning) is the DNA for AAU and is based on a long history of experiential and experimental developments combined with a theoretical underpinning. Today, PBL is practiced all over the world, however not to the same degree as at AAU and many international PhD students have never experienced this educational model before and do not understand the learning philosophy embedded and the daily practices.

The aim of this PhD course is that the PhD students understand and reflect on the systemic PBL approach with strong institutional culture in the research work as well as in education. As part of this environment, PhD students, especially newcomers, should gain a better understanding of what PBL is, the learning principles and practices behind Aalborg PBL model, the collaborative project work, how to facilitate students’ projects and learn how to handle various problems and projects.

Welcome to Professional Communication, Fall

Description: The course will take both a theoretical and a practical approach. The theoretical approach by conceptualising the planning, presentation and evaluation processes emphasising the communicative aspects. The practical approach by training the oral communication in a video laboratory where the participants are asked to make a presentation of both a self-selected subject and a self-selected situation. The course will be organised in three parts: First, the participants will be asked to prepare a presentation. Second, there will be a presentation of concepts at the seminar followed by the video laboratory. Third, at the end of the seminar the participants will be asked to set up a personal plan for improvement. Before the course starts, the participants will receive a collection of relevant papers. The issues raised in this course will not be subject-based but participant-based on a general level for scientific communication. PhD students from other faculties and universities can benefit from attending the course.

Objectives: The objective is to train and improve the participants’ skills in oral communication especially at scientific conferences and in university teaching.

Welcome to Project Management and Interpersonal Skills, Fall

 

Description: This course is a practical ‘hands on’ workshop, which will support PhD students in their endeavors to manage the PhD project. The focus is twofold: 1) enhancing project management skills in a university culture that is characterized by unruly creative work, lack of formal structures and network organization. 2) Enhancing interpersonal skills, particularly in relation to the cooperation with supervisors and other important stakeholders.

The workshop will introduce and illustrate an easy and down to earth method on how to plan your time on a daily basis inspired by Steven Covey (2005) and the game plan approach from the world of coaching. The course will also work with the Core Quality Quadrant (Ofman, 2004) as a tool to explore interpersonal communication structure. Key issues in the relationship between PhD student and supervisor will be identified and analyzed by means of role-play.

There will be a possibility for an individual follow up coaching session after a month for those PhD students that find it beneficial.  

 

Target group:
• PhD students preferably during their first year

 

Time schedule for the workshop: One workshop will be held in the spring and one in the fall

 

Objectives: To show the PhD student:

  • How to be a good project planner on a daily basis in a university setting
  • How to apply the Core Quality method to understand your own role in interpersonal relationships
  • How to use basic negotiating skills in making agreements with your supervisor
  • How to build a network in academia

 

Course structure:

  • 2 consecutive days consisting of a mix of introductions and exercises individually and in groups.
  • An assignment related to actual skills is to be send in before the workshop
  • Relevant literature will be introduced during the course

 

Completion of the course: Handing in assignments and participating in the course are criteria for passing the course.

Welcome to Writing and Reviewing Scientific Papers, Fall 

Description: The aim is to improve the participants' competence in writing and reviewing scientific papers. The course takes a practical approach and focuses on the craftsmanship needed as a scientist. It is recommended that this course is taken during the first period of a PhD study. PhD students from all areas of engineering and science can benefit from attending, although the course to some extent favors "hard science" disciplines. The discussions will address general issues related to scientific writing. The course is organised in three activities. First, the PhD students are asked to study selected literature on the subject. Second, two one-day seminars are devoted to presentations by the organisers, discussions amongst participants, and lectures by invited speakers. Third, the PhD students are required to practice both writing and reviewing in specially designed exercises. A collection of papers will be distributed before the course. In addition, a reading list of relevant books and papers is given.

NB! Please observe that attendance is absolutely mandatory throughout the two dates mentioned above. Participants, who are absent during part of one or both of these two dates will not receive any credits.
