Welcome to Academic Information Searching, Publishing and Management -a (2021) (TECH/ENG1)


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.

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 Professional Communication -a (2021)


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 of Research and Development -a (2021)


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.

Research, long term experience as PhD coach and feed back from earlier participants at this course show that PhD students benefit immensely from being challenged to reflect on, discuss and experiment with their planning practice and the way they approach cooperation with supervisors and other important stakeholders.

The workshop will introduce and illustrate a method on how to plan your time on a daily and long term basis inspired by Steven Covey (2005) and the game plan approach from the world of coaching. The course will also work with the negotiation and conflict management approach from the Harvard Negotiation project (Stone, Patton and Heen, 2010) 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 practical exercises.

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

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 3.000 for each course where the student does not show up. Cancellations are accepted no later than 2 weeks before start of the course. Registered illness is of course an acceptable reason for not showing up on those days. Furthermore, all courses open for registration approximately four 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.
Welcome to Project Management of Research and Development -b (2021)


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.

Research, long term experience as PhD coach and feed back from earlier participants at this course show that PhD students benefit immensely from being challenged to reflect on, discuss and experiment with their planning practice and the way they approach cooperation with supervisors and other important stakeholders.

The workshop will introduce and illustrate a method on how to plan your time on a daily and long term basis inspired by Steven Covey (2005) and the game plan approach from the world of coaching. The course will also work with the negotiation and conflict management approach from the Harvard Negotiation project (Stone, Patton and Heen, 2010) 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 practical exercises.

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

 After the course the PhD student should be able to:
  • Understand the challenges of project planning as a PhD student
  • Reflect on ones own planning practice and the specific pittfalls and resources one poses
  • Develop strategies to address those pittfalls and provide feedback to other PhD students
  • Practice a more realistic and efficient planning
  • Understand the individual needs and challenges in specific cooperations with supervisors and other important stakeholders

Welcome to Engaging with Society

Description: Aalborg University is fundamentally about applying research in service for the society. Quoting the AAU research strategy:
The Aalborg University research strategy can be expressed in four words: "From research to change".

This course is devoted to PhD researchers having a cross-disciplinary or natural-technical basis, and we want to create a room for reflection of own practice.

This course is devoted to PhD researchers having a cross-disciplinary or natural-technical basis, and we want to create a room for reflection of own practice.

Being applied have implications for the need for interaction, and the aim of the course is to set focus on the importance of the researcher and of the theory use for the research. Therefore, the participants will be asked to bring own their research to foster reflections that can feed into research practise.

The course is a combination of workshop sessions divided by inspirational presentations from researchers giving perspectives nurturing the reflections.

In the course, we will focus at how the research approach influences the change-implications of the research, elucidate possibilities for change agency and critically reflect upon how different research approaches can be utilized to examine the research topic.

Description:

Many Ph.D. students in science, engineering and health need to involve and engage with stakeholders and technology users during their research. This course presents both selected theories on the Human – Technology interface, and methods for facilitating and generating qualitative data on user-involvement in technological innovation and implementation.

Pre-requisite:
MSc degree.

Learning objectives:

  • Identify methodological and theoretical dilemmas and challenges regarding stakeholder and user-involvement in technological innovation and implementation
  • Make qualified judgments regarding stakeholder and user-involvement in technological innovation and implementation
  • Make strategies to handle conflicting interests research projects that involve stakeholders and users
  • Choose theories and methods relevant for research applying stakeholder and user-involvement in technological innovation and implementation
  • Present challenges and dilemmas in own Ph.D. project that regard stakeholder and user-involvement in technological innovation and implementation

Teaching methods:

The course is designed so that each day is split up into two sessions: One before lunch and one after. Usually a session begins with a lecture (90 minutes, including breaks) followed by discussions or group work.

In preparation to the third day participants are kindly asked to do a ppt presentation on dilemmas and challenges in their Ph.D. project regarding stakeholder and user-involvement in technological innovation and implementation (duration: no more than 20 minutes). We will use the group work and discussions during the first two days to qualify the student presentation. Course participants are asked to begin reflecting on stakeholder and user issues in own project when reading the course material.

Criteria for assessment:
Reading the text material connected to the lectures, and preparing a ppt presentation on dilemmas and challenges of stakeholder involvement in your Ph.D. project, are mandatory activities for all participants.

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 3.000 for each course where the student does not show up. Cancellations are accepted no later than 2 weeks before start of the course. Registered illness is of course an acceptable reason for not showing up on those days. Furthermore, all courses open for registration approximately four 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.
