Description: This 2-day course gives you skills and knowledge within a wide range of relevant areas useful during your PhD. The objective of the course is to facilitate your entrance into the academic research world, so it is recommended that you take it when starting your PhD.

The course will cover these essential areas (see the attached file for a detailed programme):

• Searching, evaluating and organising information – How to apply a structured method to search information e.g. for a literature review. How to prepare and apply relevant criteria for assessing and documenting the search results. How reference management tools can facilitate the process of organising search results

• Research evaluation – What research evaluation entails. Citations and h-index as measures for evaluating research. How to use the most central databases in research evaluation for your subject

 • Publication strategy - How to increase publications’ visibility and searchability in databases through well-informed choices regarding an article’s key features (titles, keywords and abstracts) and choice of publication channel such as BFI and other relevant impact measures. How to use relevant tools and websites for choosing where to publish

 • Research visibility, networking and profiling - How to register research in VBN, knowledge and use of researcher identifiers, scholarly networks and Open Access

The course is a “toolbox for research”-course with a mix of presentations and hands-on exercises, either working on your own focusing on your own PhD-project or in small groups with a shared focus. Please remember to bring your computer.

Preparation before the course: Please see the attached file with articles of subjects covered in the course. Prior to the course you also need to make sure you can log in to Aalborg University Research Portal at vbn.aau.dk/admin. For support, please contact vbn@aub.aau.dk.

A three-day blended learning course (two full days in Copenhagen, followed by a 1 day online activity appr. two weeks after).

The course focus is: Understanding complex learning and learning design processes through the use of audio/visual materials (images, sound, video, animation and other similar artefacts) as qualitative digital research methods for data production and analysis.

The course addresses the research potential from using audio/visual approaches when investigating learning, where learning is understood in the broadest sense of processes and environments, and using a richness of analogue, digital and blended empirical material. When new learning cultures emerge in institutions and in workplaces, the matter of how and why to choose qualitative empirical methods becomes a relevant question to everybody who investigate pedagogical situations, implementation of learning practices, as well as organizational change and development. Research in this area will today challenge well-known approaches within data collection, production and analysis, as the empirical materials become digital and digital technologies provide distributed roles, actions and information in time and space. By taking on the audio/visual approaches, the course will come about the many faceted ways of producing empirical data from the many faceted practices in the field of learning.

The course is relevant for participants working with methodological and methodical issues in doctoral research projects addressing learning, didactics, pedagogy and organizational change.

The course combines practical experience from lab-activities with theoretical knowledge generation and is organized in three parts:

  •  Part 1: 14 days prior to the course, submission of a paper, that includes an audio/visual approach related to the PhD project (see below).
  • Part 2: Two full days in Copenhagen, with a combination of hands-on activities and theoretical lectures.
  • Part 3: One day online session with presentations, feed-back and feed-forward in relation to the resubmitted paper on the participant’s projects.

All parts of the course are mandatory, including the course literature. Bring your computer and headphones.

Beskrivelse:

Kurset henvender sig til ph.d.-studerende inden for skole og dagtilbud. Formålet er dels at klæde ph.d.-studerende på til at forstå de debatter der kører omkring pædagogik i DK samt at indgå i dem på en ordentlig, konstruktiv, saglig og videnskabelig måde, og dels at øge deres kendskab til problematikkerne omkring at anvende forskellige teoretiske/videnskabsteoretiske tilgange og forskellige metoder til at belyse de samme fænomener.

Mere præcist sigter kurset på at give de studerende:

Viden om

  • Tværfaglige tilgange til forskning og de videnskabsteoretiske problemstillinger knyttet hertil
  • Modeller for viden i tværfaglige sammenhænge, fx videnskabelig perspektivisme
  • Grundpositioner i den pædagogiske debat. Hvad er pædagogik, hvad er videnskab, hvad er politik og hvordan smelter de sammen?
  • Begreber som evidens og mixed methods.

 

Færdigheder i

  • At formidle tværfaglige problemstillinger
  • At belyse pædagogiske projekter og initiativer fra forskellige perspektiver
  • At navigere egen forskning i krydsfeltet mellem videnskab og politik

Kompetencer til

  • Tværfaglig analyse af pædagogiske og skolepolitiske problemstillinger
  • At deltage i videnskabelige og politiske debatter omkring det pædagogiske område
  • Videnskabsteoretisk begrundelse for og kritisk stillingtagen til konkrete projekter i form af indsatser eller undersøgelser

Da kurset i princippet er relevant for alle inden for uddannelse, læring og pædagogik vil en afledt effekt være at ph.d.-studerende inden for skole/pædagogik/uddannelsesforskning lærer hinanden at kende på tværs af adresser og miljøer.

Organizational learning in a changing world – Tomorrows’ solutions for the problems of today

Description:

This course is part of the International Conference on Organizational Learning and Knowledge Capabilities hosted by Aalborg University. The theme of the conference is “Bridging research and practice through Organizational Learning - Collaboration and Co-production in the 21st Century” (More information regarding the conference: www.olkc2020.aau.dk). In this Ph.D. course we will focus on how organizations need to change in order to address the challenges of tomorrow and how research can help promote this change.

 The challenge of tomorrow truly calls for inter-disciplinary approaches and understandings. The course will primarily focus on how concrete action and processes can bring about actual organizational change through participative, inter-disciplinary research. This PhD course intends to introduce, explore and critically reflect upon different methodological approaches to study organizational change. The course will take up discussions and explorations into how one can include understandings of global challenges and organizational change in inter-disciplinary research   

 The learning objectives of the course are:

  • to provide the PhD students with knowledge about the theoretical resources and heritage of action oriented and participatory research theories and strategies as well as processual perspectives on organizational learning and development.
  • to provide the PhD students with practical skills and know-how that will enable them to conduct their PhD studies and reflect on the role of action oriented and processual approaches in relation to the field of their studies.
  • to provide the PhD students with expertise that enables them to critically reflect on and assess the strengths and limitations of empirical studies that are guided by the theoretical and methodological assumptions of action oriented and processual approaches to organizational change

Important information concerning PhD courses We have over some time experienced problems with no-show for both project and general courses. It has now reached a point where we are forced to take action. Therefore, the Doctoral School has decided to introduce a no-show fee of DKK 500 for each course where the student does not show up. Cancellations are accepted before deadline. Registered illness is of course an acceptable reason for not showing up on those days. Furthermore, all courses open for registration approximately three months before start. This can hopefully also provide new students a chance to register for courses during the year. We look forward to your registrations.
