Welcome to Existential Health Care Communication and Phenomenology (2021)


Description: In this three days PhD-seminar we will focus on the phenomenological and existential dimensions of communication and search for meaning in health care professions and professions where the interhuman relations are central. For decades, professionals and researchers in health care and human-centered professions have called for a re-humanization in health, education and welfare. This has been described as responding to an unsettling tendency in these professions of feeling “out of tact with life” or “out of resonance” with the core values of their professions (Kitson et al. 2010; Galvin & Todres, 2013; Uhrenfeldt et al., 2018; Martinsen, 2018; Rosa, 2019; Hansen & Jørgensen, 2020). 

Our approach to phenomenological research inquiring into the areas of existential communication, spiritual care and care ethics is threefold and described as a movement from an ontic, over an ontological, to a pre-ontological phenomenology. Existential Health Communication can also be understood as having these three phenomenological levels. In the PhD-course we will show how existential and spiritual care and communication have been approached from these three levels and how we in our research work to integrate these levels. 

Basically, we will try to answer three questions through this triple perspective: 1) how can we understand the search for meaning in humancentered professions from the perspective of care ethics and spiritual care (Tronto 1993; Cobb, et al. 2012; Leget et al 2019); 2) How can we understand the existential dimensions in communication when health and well-being basically are understood as an “ontological homecoming” (Heidegger, 1995; Svenaeus, 2000; Todres & Galvin (2010), Ücok-Sayrak, 2019, Hansen & Jørgensen, 2020); and 3) how can we do phenomenological and action-oriented research (Halling et al, 1994; Dinkens & Hansen, 2016, Visse, Hansen & Leget, 2019, 2020) that specifically aims to create aesthetical, philosophical and spiritual spaces for a special kind of existential resonance (Rosa, 2019), wondrous listening (Nancy, 2002) and evocative writing (Van Manen & Van Manen, 2020) towards these existential, spiritual and ethical dimensions in caring and human-centered practices?

Welcome to Skriverliv – skrivning som kreativ analytisk praksis (2021)


Description: En uforfærdet tilgang til skrivning kan give et lettere og mere glædesfyldt liv som PhD-studerende og ikke mindst resultere i en PhD-afhandling af høj kvalitet. Formålet med kurset er at give skrivning en plads i hverdagen, at opbygge et forråd af skrivestrategier, og at lære sig selv at kende som skrivende – kort og godt at skabe sig et skriverliv. Kurset er en kombination af oplæg, skrivning, feedback og dialog. Delta-gerne vil gennem hele kurset arbejde med eget materiale og skrive tekster med udgangspunkt i deres eget PhD-projekt. Kurset bygger på de nyeste indsigter fra skriveforskningen og er samtidig et praktisk ’hands-on’ kursus med masser af tekstproduktion og dialog om egne og andres tekster. Foruden indsigt og input til nye vaner kan deltagerne tage fra kurset med en række tekster, der er lige til at arbejde videre med, hvad enten de er i gang med en empirisk analyse, et litteraturreview, en artikel eller et kapitel til afhandlingen.

Welcome to The Aesthetic Experience and the Aesthetics of Slowness (2021)


Description: Contemporary culture, through the powerful impact of new technologies and economic incentives, has increasingly emphasized the value of speed. We want not only our machines but also our human performances to function more quickly and efficiently. We expect faster results and rhythms in our daily life, and we grow impatient with things that take more time. Fast food is now ubiquitous, and its unsatisfactory aesthetic qualities have stimulated a response of resistance, such as the slow food movement. Our ability to savor art in a slow and deep manner is increasingly threatened in a lifeworld that always privileges speed. At the same time design of human computer interaction and digital services request a much deeper insights into the aesthetics of experience. The aesthetic experience has traditionally found its value in a fullness and wholeness that calls for extended attention that requires taking one’s time.

In this doctoral school, we will examine the concept of aesthetic experience through the aesthetics of slowness in both theory and practice. We will combine reading and lectures in aesthetic philosophy and learning with a temporally extended, full-bodied aesthetic experience of interacting with works of art by traveling with and in them as they move slowly through an aesthetically attractive countryside in North Jutland. The course will be interdisciplinary, combining perspectives of artists, art critics, philosophy, learning, humancomputer interaction and other theories.

German philosophers of art distinguish between two forms of experience. On the hand, there is Erfahrung that requires taking time and that is characterized by development and movement toward wholeness and completion of meaning and form. The word contains the verb form of “fahren” which means travel and thus implies taking time. In contrast, there is Erlebnis, that is more a more sudden and sensational experience, something that is simply lived through. The summer school will focus on aesthetic experience in the sense of Erfahrung and will take the idea of travel literally by involving travel with and in selected artworks.

The summer school will explore the aesthetic experience and the aesthetics of slowness through a number of questions:

  • The aesthetics experiences of slowness: Time, space and materiality?
  • How artworks afford the experiences of slowness? And how are the participants enacting the experiences of slowness?
         - What are the individual/group resistance / pleasure/dynamics to get into the mood of slow experience?
         - How do the participants integrate the experience of slowness to their hyper-networked and busy everyday life?
  • How to reflect the aesthetics experience of slowness in the PhDs thesis-work?

Welcome to Konferencepapers og –præsentationer (2021)


Description: Kurset er en mulighed for at arbejde i et trygt og konstruktivt forum med konferencedeltagelsens mange aspekter. Temaet dækker bredt kunsten at deltage i konferencer, konference-paperet som format og genre samt mulighed for at træne og få feedback på den mundtlige konference præsentation. Man kan deltage med paper og mundtlig præsentation som optakt til en specifik konference eller som træning til konferencedeltagelse generelt. Kurset er struktureret med en indledende forelæsning efterfulgt af deltagernes mundtlige præsentationer. Dagen afsluttes en opsamling v. kursusinstruktøren, så deltagerne går fra dagen med en plan for, hvordan de skal arbejde videre med deres paper og mundtlige præsentation.  

Det forventes at hver deltager sender et paper (3.000-4.000 ord på dansk eller engelsk), der skal omhandle kvalitativ forskning, og hvilken rolle kvalitativ metode spiller i deres forskning. Paperet kan handle om et metodisk aspekt af phd-projektet, en metodisk problematik eller udfordring, eller man kan præsentere en analyse, man er i gang med. Deadline for indsendelse er 7. maj. Hver deltager holder på dagen et oplæg på baggrund af paperet i en af de planlagte sessions, hvor der er feedback fra kursusinstruktør og øvrige kursusdeltagere. 

Der er ingen kursuslitteratur, da det er deltagernes arbejde, der er i fokus. Alle indsendte papers sendes til alle og forventes læst inden kurset. Deltagerne organiseres i opponent-par, som meldes ud til deltagerne på forhånd, så alle forbereder ekstra grundig feedback på ét paper.

Welcome to Culture Psychology: Human Development in Social-Cultural Context (2021)


Description: This Doctoral Summer School is meant to provide opportunities for Ph.D. aspirants in psychology, anthropology, sociology, history, education, and semiotics to learn the basic principles of the cultural organization of the human mind and social groups. The thematic focus of this year’s summer school will be on human development in social-cultural context.  The course aims to rethink human development within the ongoing processes of globalization, societal change and intergroup conflict. To achieve this, it explores social and psychological development through the interlocking processes of microgenesis, ontogenesis and sociogenesis, which are applied to different case studies. The unique aspect of this Summer School is concrete joint work on methodology—developing new solutions to the needs of participants to introduce concepts from cultural psychology and anthropology into their particular research projects.

Welcome to Suffering in Contemporary Society (2021)


Description: During this four-day course, we will investigate the questions, dilemmas and aporias related to human suffering. Ranging from sociological analyses of social pathologies over psychological and medical issues and questions related to diagnostic cultures, existential and theological encounters with suffering to related issues following from climate change, we seek to promote interdisciplinarity at its best. Approaching suffering from these various angles, we also insist on the internal overlaps, and call for mutual exchanges. The complexity of the subject requires transcending specific disciplinary stances, and we believe there is much to gain from digging deeper into both the specificity and the interrelatedness of suffering. 

Even though suffering has the potential to unite us, it can only be known uniquely as our own, making it paradigmatic for existential dilemmas in a broader sense. Suffering in various forms pervades history, but its dramas are staged in culturally specific forms and experienced singularly. Although it can be seen as an irreversible condition of human life, there is something undoubtedly wrong with certain forms of excessive suffering. This course makes the argument that a university in the 21stcentury should play a central role regarding conceptualizing and understanding suffering, as well as to work actively regarding how to remedy in relevant ways.

This course will be relevant for PhD students from various scientific fields that address suffering in their PhD project or have an interest in including the topic in future work. The course should be seen as an opportunity to inspire and be inspired by colleagues working with related issues and by lectures from distinguished scholars in a broad range of scientific fields with an original take on the subject. As such, the course will contribute to theoretical, empirical and clinical advancement regarding apprehending and managing issues related suffering in a PhD project. 

Furthermore, it will provide a great forum for exchanges of ideas and networking both within and between scientific areas. Therefore, the course literature spans several different scientific approaches, which hopefully will inspire participants to further engage with suffering in their own projects as well as utilizing more interdisciplinary approaches. “Participants are required to read the course literature and submit a one-page abstract, concerning how suffering is – or might be – interesting for their own projects. The abstracts are to be read by all participants and will make the point of departure for the oral presentation and plenary discussion during the course days. Abstracts are sent by e-mail to alfred@hum.aau.dk and pclement@hum.aau.dk 

Together with our invited lecturers who are all internationally recognized authorities and stand at the frontiers of their respective fields, we look forward to four days of academic life at its best: high quality discussions within and between different fields of studies, meetings with national and international colleagues, establishment of future research cooperations as well as social activities.

PhD Supervision online course for new supervisors
A one-month course combining mentoring, two online workshops and peer-supervision

  • Description: 

    The course is aimed at PhD supervisors and co-supervisors at AAU-hum at the beginning of their supervision career. It is preferable that you have started doing supervision when you enroll because the course is based on reflection on your own practice.

    Supervision is often carried out in small restricted circles and therefore we don’t get the chance to experience how other people supervise. The aim is to ‘open up the supervisory space’ and thereby inspire you and create room for reflection on your supervisory practice. Preparation must be expected before the course and you need to participate in peer supervision of each other’s supervision between the course days.

    The course language is English.

    Learning objectives - after completion of the course you will be able to:

    ·       Reflect on your own supervision role in a broader perspective

    ·       Identify your strengths and challenges as a supervisor and set goals for your development

    ·       Have new ideas for developing your supervision practice from observing other participant’s supervision and              exchanging experiences with them 

    ·       Align expectations with your PhD student and other supervisors in a structured way

    ·       Give constructive feedback that is concrete and criteria based

    ·       Adapt the supervision process, so the PhD students learning is optimized

    Form and content

    The course includes five elements:

    1.     Pre-course assignment: Hand in a short case story based on your own supervision experience (max 1 page)

    2.     Individual coaching session: Reflection on supervision style, strengths and challenges

    3.     Workshop 1: Aligning expectations with both the PhD student and other supervisors

    4.     Peer-supervision: Observe each other’s supervision and give feedback

    5.     Workshop 2: How to promote the candidates independence through constructive feedback

    Topics included in the course are:

    • Supervision style 
    • Awareness of strong and weak points as a supervisor 
    • Insights into your PhD students' own perspectives 
    • Feedback methods 
    • Collaboration agreement
    • Exchange of experiences with other supervisors 

      

    How to write the case story

    Describe an issue or problem, which you currently face in relation to one of your PhD students. The problem should be specific, current and unresolved. It could be about one of your student’s lack of skills, motivation or ownership. Or it could be about your work relationship with the student, the cooperation among the group of supervisors, or something else. You should also describe what kind of advice/help you wish to receive to move on with the issue.

    The description should be approximately ½-1 A4 page. The written material will not be distributed to the other course participants. You may be asked to share it orally at the workshops either in group work or in plenary.

    If you cannot think of any specific and unresolved problems related to your current PhD supervision practice or if you do not supervise PhD students yet, you can describe a situation or issue you have previously struggled with in your own PhD study or one related to supervision of master students.

    Please label the file and the story with your name, but remember to remove sensitive personal data from the case such as the names of students and co-supervisors. The case will be treated confidentially.

Course description, incl. learning objectives and prerequisites:Discursive approaches to research have become increasingly valuable across a range of study areas. This PhD course offers a review of the interdisciplinary field of discourse studies with a specific focus on the varied approaches and methodologies aligned with the broad field of discourse studies. This course will consist of three interrelated topics over a three-day period.

Day 1 is dedicated to a review of the interdisciplinary field of discourse studies and its core concepts and philosophical assumptions. The focus will be on what brings this large and dispersed field together with the aim of providing students with a deep understanding of its conceptual grounding.

Day 2 will be dedicated to the presentation of different methodological approaches to discourse studies. The presentation will be structured along traditional and contemporary approaches in order for students to gain comprehensive insight into the historic development of the field and the applicability of approaches to different problems, contexts and data.

Day 3 will focus on students’ own work in relation to the larger field of discourse studies and the varied methodological approaches. Students will be asked to reflect on their suggested approaches and methods with a view to refining and/or redesigning their methods for exploring their particular topic or problem of interest. Specifically, we will address the challenges of combining approaches that would be considered incompatible and encourage students to develop new approaches to fit their unique research purposes. Students will present/discuss their specific research problem, a chosen discursive method, and reflection as to why this approach would be most useful for addressing their research interests. 


There will be two prerequisites for the course:

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.
