Description

Content

How come some leaders are followed, whilst others are not? What does it take to be a great leader? The purpose of the PhD course in ‘Authentic Leadership’ is to contribute to PhD training through discovering as well as nurturing and developing leadership authenticity skills among PhD researchers. The course will provide PhD researchers with theoretical and conceptual understanding of the concept of Authentic Leadership as well as train students in critical reflection and application of authentic leadership in different contexts.

Learning objectives

The PhD course is a practical course, not a textbook course on leadership authenticity. PhD researchers have the possibility to network with others on an international level. Giving the leadership authenticity concept an empirical value, this PhD course will educate researchers on how to be true to one-self and to open up career choices and potential.

Participants

We target PhD students who are in their first eighteen - twenty-four months of the doctoral programme; students in their later stage of their studies are welcome also to apply. We accept max 25 students.

Language

English

Delivery

The course will be offered online and be based on the principle of complex problem solving, bringing in real life problems, to which the students find solutions. The course contains lectures, simulations, PBL-oriented workshops, problem-solving and reflection exercises. Blended learning and online tools will be utilized.

Beskrivelse:

I akademisk skrivning hænger form og indhold sammen. Derfor er elementer som struktur, sammenhæng og rød tråd vigtige for kvaliteten af den tekst, som formidler forskningsaktiviteterne og de resultater, som den PhD-studerende producerer. Det, vi kan kalde ’det akademiske håndværk’ handler ikke kun om systematik refleksion angående fokus, forskningsspørgsmål, analyseenhed, teori og begreber, videnskabsteori, design, metode og etik, samt analyseproces. Kvaliteten af håndværket handler i høj grad også om skriftligt at argumentere for de valg, som man tager eller har taget desangående og at opbygge en tekst, hvor disse valg og deres konsekvenser er tydelige i indhold og struktur.

Dette arbejde starter tidligt i processen og pågår kontinuerligt i løbet af en ph.d. proces. Kurset er derfor designet til at deltagere kan få glæde af oplæg, øvelser og pensum uanset hvor de er i ph.d. Forløbet.

Formålet med ph.d. kurset er at sætte fokus på det akademiske håndværk, der skal til for at skrive og redigere en afhandlings elementer, så de ved afhandlingens færdiggørelse fremstår som en struktureret, sammenhængende tekst af høj kvalitet, hvor resultaternes gyldighedsbetingelser og bidrag er tydeligt præsenteret. På kursets tre dage arbejder vi med dette gennem forelæsninger, konkrete øvelser, og fælle diskussioner med henblik på at opbygge og udvide deltagernes ’værkstøjkasse’.

Kurset bygger på nyeste forskning i akademisk skrivning, særligt angående klarhed, struktur, form-indhold relationen, kvalitetskriterier som reliabilitet, kohærens, transparens, og analytisk generaliserbarhed. Samtidig er det et praktisk kursus, hvor deltagerne arbejder konkret med deres egen tekst i forhold til kursets emner

Kursusdeltagerne skal indsende et 10 siders paper hvori de præsenterer deres eget arbejde i relation til kursets nøglebegreber, samt reflekterer over hvad deres skrivemæssige udfordringer og ambitioner er i relation hertil.

Program: 

Dag 1: Struktur. Vi starter med at rammesætte kurset og diskutere hvordan afhandlingens overordnede struktur hænger sammen med – og gerne skal støtte – formidlingen af deltagernes forskning. Vi diskuterer forskellige tilgange til struktur og strukturering af tekst, forskellige genrer og faglige discipliner, samt hvordan struktur også kan være koblet til forskerens egen ’stemme’ (begrebet om voice i skrivning).


Dag 2: Kvalitet. På andendagen sætter vi fokus på kvalitet i forskning og i akademisk skrivning som proces og produkt. Vi diskuterer forskellige kvalitetskriterier og inddrager nyere forskning om kvalitet koblet ikke kun til de ’klassiske’ kvalitetskriterier for forskning, men også til begreber som f.eks. konsistens, relevans, refleksivitet, klarhed, autencitet, engagement, tvivl/åbenhed, repræsentativitet mv.

Gennem øvelser, oplæg, forelæsning og diskussion får vi nuanceret og præciseret forståelsen af, hvad diskussioner om kvalitet kan indeholde, og hvorfor de er så vigtige for forskning generelt og for håndværket i at skrive en phd-afhandling som en samlet, sammenhængende tekst.

 

Dag 3: Bidrag. På trejdedagen fokuserer vi på afhandlingens bidrag. Hvad er et forskningsmæssigt bidrag? Og hvor bidrager man? Ofte bidrager en ph.d. afhandling til et (eller flere) forskningsfelter, til et praksisfelt, og måske også til den offentlige debat eller policy-udvikling. Gennem øvelser og oplæg fra undervisere og deltagere skal vi undersøge og diskutere, hvordan håndværket med at skrive og strukturere en ph.d. afhandlings kappe også skal støtte den tydelige formidling af afhandlingens bidrag og perspektiver.
