Welcome to Urban Design with 3D Cadastre and Property Rights (2021)


Description: The development in mixed cities shows an ever-increasing focus on that mix different functions; businesses, different ownerships to homes, restaurants, cafes, shops etc. into the same urban area, all the way down to a mix of multiple features in the same building.  

The mixed city is both the realization of world goals (UN´s SDG) and local implementation of the city of the future. That is about developing cities in a sustainable way, socially and functionally, which ensures that creation vibrant and safe cities with a CO2-reducing lifestyle and shape. A mix of several functions in the same building presupposes a mixed ownership, which in turn presupposes property boundaries in three dimensions (3D property). 

The course enables the participants to use cases from the real world to examine institutions and public and private engagement in 3D real property. 

As a part of the course, the participants will be introduced to theories of property rights, theories of land administration and the social domain cadastral data models. Cases from Sweden, the Netherlands, Australia and Demark are presented which illustrate that cadastral management are closely linked to different institutional and regulatory models and actors in the different countries.

Welcome to Assessing the cumulative effects of human activities on marine ecosystems (2021)


Description: The challenges regarding the oceans is on the agenda around the world. The sea areas are facing extensive exploitation, and along with the numerous maritime activities, the marine environment is highly influenced by climate change. This PhD course addresses the need for decision support for maritime spatial planning and will provide an introduction to maritime spatial planning processes as well as specific planning needs, concepts and tools referring to the ecosystem-based approach, ecosystem services, and multiple use of marine space. The PhD course will introduce state-of-the-art and assessment tools and will include hands-on workshops on cumulative impact, co-location, and ecosystem service evaluation.  

An assignment, reflecting on how this kind of tools can be utilised in the context of the PhD students own work, has to be handed in to pass the course.

Welcome to PBL and digitalisation – near-future models of PBL


Description: This course will offer a research-based introduction to Problem Based Learning and digitalisation. It will discuss how the current international focus on digitalisation of education may affect PBL-models, and it will present ‘near-future models’ of PBL derived from the research project (PBL future). These will be used as a backdrop to discuss how digital technologies could enable transformative and innovative ways of organizing PBL. The course will then present Networked Learning as an area of research particularly relevant for digital PBL, and it will present theoretical frameworks and methodological approaches enabling participants to design and organize PBL in ways that explore and harness the opportunities offered by digital technologies. 

The course will explore blended and hybrid format as part of its design. Participants are invited to work with an educational challenge or a problem and transform this into a novel PBL-design. It can be their own teaching practice. As part of the evaluation, participants will present this design to the other participants.

Welcome to The datafication of the media industry – infrastructures of data and networks in the future of media (2021)


Description: As many other industries, the media business is in the middle of a digital service transformation that changes both power relations, business structures and daily operations. The datafication of the media business is visible to citizens – consumers, it has a big societal impact and is possibly more radical in nature compared to many other industries. The tech platforms - social media networks, global Video on Demand services, app stores and digital services in general - now shape both business conditions and politics. This development pushes traditional media such as newspapers, broadcasters and other publishers to move into a -for them - novel territory: Datafication. Here understood e.g. as algorithmic recommendation, audience analysis and algorithmic content creation (‘robot journalism’). This algorithmic turn challenges many of the established cultural values in media, e.g. diversity, unbiasedness and human curation. These values legitimates the media in their own understanding and in the public (political) understanding of their role in society. But is there a fundamental incompatibility between the new algorithmic instruments and the traditional values of the media? Do the algorithmic instruments constitute a chance for a new definition of what 'media' are, or will the mathematical logic of the algorithms destroy the human aspect of mass media communication? The datafication of the media is propelled forward by the dynamics of IP-based communication, which changes the business foundation of media. 'Old’ digital media communication technologies such as DVB (Digital Video Broadcasting) or DAB (Digital Audio Broadcasting) give way to 'Over-the-top' IP-based solutions such as Video on Demand. For users this may be experienced as an improvement of the user experience (or a burden of many new subscriptions), but for national cultural policies and for the security / stability of the media infrastructure, the shift to IP-based media has big implications. 


Through lectures from industry experts and university researchers as well as case study or theory-oriented papers presented by participating PhD students, this course offers an interdisciplinary approach to the transformations of the media industry and its implications for societies.

Welcome to Theories and qualitative methods for investigating technology in action (2021)


This course is for PhD students who research technology in action, i.e. students that work with finding approaches for qualitative research of practices around technology and theories that can support their investigation of technology in practice. With an increase in interdisciplinary research of technological development and uses, theories and methods are needed that can work at the intersection between the technical and the human practice. At this course we will reflect on theoretical and methodological approaches for investigating technology in action.


Learning objectives:

  • identify methodological and theoretical dilemmas and challenges regarding research of technology in action
  • make qualified reflections regarding the unit of analysis for research of technology in action
  • choose theories and methods relevant for researching technology in action
  • present challenges and dilemmas in own Ph.D. project that regard research of technology in action

Teaching methods:

The course alternate between lectures and exercises. At the course students, together with lecturers, explore theory focused on understanding materiality. And students explore qualitative methods focused on researching technological practices including ethnographic and participatory methods.

Day 1 (10.00-16.00)

Day 2 (9.00-16.00)

Day 3 (9.00-14.30)

Challenges thinking   with theory in research of technology in practice

Dilemmas using   methods in research of technology in practice

Presentations and   feedback

Examples and   dicsussions of socio-technical theory

Examples and   discussion of techo-anthropological methods

 

 

The participants are asked to submit a 2 page long abstract that describe their project, and state what theoretical and methodological challenges they encounter in their project in relation to studying, intervening or designing technologies through the use of qualitative methodologies. Please upload abstracts in the folder two days prior to the course and please orient yourself in the abstracts to learn about your fellow PhD students and the cases we will discuss during the course. 

In preparation for the course participants are also kindly asked to do a short (max 10 min) presentation of dilemmas and challenges in their PhD project regarding research of technology in action. This presentation will be used as a starting point for individual feedback at the last day of the course. 

As conclusion of the course, the participants will write 2-4 pages about theories and methods for researching technology in action in their PhD research. The ambition is that these pages can form the basis for the students’ further writing of research papers and thesis. Course organizers will read and give a short individual feedback to all students.

Welcome to Advanced LCA – Consequential and IO-based Life Cycle Assessment (2021)

 Prices


Organizers
The course is organized by The Technical Doctoral School of IT and Design, Aalborg University and Danish Centre for Environmental Assessment (DCEA) PhD programme in Planning and Development – Template for course proposals 2020 www.DCEA.dk, in collaboration with the International Life Cycle Academy (ILCA) www.ILCA.es

Description

The course aims at strengthening skills in life cycle inventory analysis. The course targets the development of advanced competences in LCA by applying the problem based-learning (PBL) teaching model that focuses on learning by doing and reflection. The course activities will include intensive group work, problem defining and solving applied to real-word cases, practical exercises, and discussion sessions or workshops. The target audience of the course is academics (PhDs, postdoc, other) or professionals who already have basic experience with LCA and intend to bring their LCA competences to an advanced level. Basic experience means for example having carried out simple LCAs before or having elementary knowledge of LCA theory. The course content is organized in three modules (main teacher in parenthesis).

Module 1 (online). Intro to advanced LCA (Massimo Pizzol)

In this hands-on module students will learn how to use the software Brightway2 for LCA research. Topics covered: Computational structure of LCA. Computer simulation and statistical approaches for uncertainty and sensitivity analysis in LCA. LCA reproducibility and data sharing. The module includes exercises.

Module 2. Consequential LCA (Bo Weidema)

Students will learn the fundamentals of Consequential LCA. Topics covered: Introduction to attributional and consequential models. Algorithms for performing consequential LCA in the definition of functional unit, consumption mix, and identification of determining and dependent coproducts. Communicating consequential models. The module includes exercises.

Module 3. Input output LCA (Jannick Schmidt).

Students will learn the fundamentals of Input-Output modelling. Topics covered: supply-use tables, multi-regional models and trade linking. Integrating process LCA and IO-analysis via hybrid LCA, tiered and embedded. The module includes exercises.

Lecturers
Bo Weidema, Professor
Jannick Schmidt, Associate Professor
Massimo Pizzol, Associate professor

Registration and info

Please apply via mail to the course organizer Massimo Pizzol (massimo@plan.aau.dk).  You must provide the following information in the email: Full name / Profession (PhD student, postdoc, consultant…) / Institution name / Address / email address / Phone nr / your research field or Phd topic / your experience with LCA


ECTS Distribution

The five ECTS credits of the course are divided roughly in this way:


Activities: Includes attending to the lectures and performing exercises in class.

Readings: Approx. 100 pages of scientific articles and reports, that are provided to the students, plus python tutorials.

Group work: students work in groups (max 5 people). Each group will work on a case study and apply the knowledge of the course on the case study.

EXAMPLE, a group works on an LCA of a product and does:

- prior to the course: choice of product and data mining, getting base knowledge and data to describe the product system.

- during the course (exercises in class): consequential inventory with matrix format, IO LCA inventory, inclusion of iLUC, inclusion of social impacts, etc.

- after the course: organize the material and prepare a portfolio/article where all the techniques are presented for the case study.

Eventually, all portfolios are made available. Each student will thus get the nfo on five different cases. Students should be able to organize themselves using online tools (skype, dropbox etc) to collaborate in group remotely prior and after the course.

Welcome to Design and Innovation Processes and their Staging (2021)

Description: 

While innovation and design are increasingly expected to answer to a broad variety of concerns and depending on the incorporation of knowledge from a diversity of sources, questions are raised as to what kinds of sources, and how they are incorporated in processes of design and innovation. As innovative challenges and conditions are changing with increasing pace these questions cannot just be solved through a singular choice of organization or established guidelines for selecting innovative ideas. Issues of how to stage the scene and circumstances and how to facilitate processes and the involvement of diverse actors in design as well as innovation have increasingly come into focus. Successful design and innovation are seen as the outcome of interactions within a broader network spanning across diverse organizational and societal boundaries and institutions. There is a need to address the design and navigation of new fora and spaces for development where existing frames of understandings may be challenged and new patterns for interactions emerge. 

The course takes its departure in the well-described dilemmas between incremental but often path dependent innovative processes within established networks and the quest for the development and design of new innovative, disruptive or breakthrough ideas, product and services facilitated through new networked relations. A range of theories, cases and approaches concerned with the framing, designing and staging of innovative processes, from linear sequential models to complex, dynamic networks of innovation are treated and related to the current work of the participants. 

During the course, a dialogue is created between the participants’ projects and a diversity of understandings of the management and staging of design and innovation from organization, institutional theory and sociology of innovation. The idea is to direct inquiry and to stimulate theoretical insights and empirical approaches in the field of design and innovation. The course introduces concepts, which help render relevant phenomena and issues (relationships, dynamics, consequences) in the participants’ projects visible and open to investigation, analysis as well as creative inquiry and exploration. This would, in turn, also help in delineating hypotheses of relevance to the investigation of innovative processes and their staging, and in proposing new directions for research in the field. 

The program will cover the following themes: 

  • Challenges in management of innovation and the staging of design and innovative processes
  • Innovation and design as heterogeneous processes of interaction involving actors, artefacts and knowledge
  • Innovation and design as journeys characterized by uncertainty, ambiguity and complexity
  • Innovation between rational analytical, interpretive and performative processes
  • Innovation and design as exploitation and exploration
  • Innovation as networking, brokering and collaboration in and between organizations
  • From planning and calculation to social learning and translation of interests
  • ‘Co-creation’ and ‘path creation’ as heterogeneous network building,
  • Staging and navigation of temporary spaces for innovation across knowledge boundaries

Part 1 (Takes place at AAU Aalborg):

The first part of the course provides insight and understanding of how theory and practice in innovation and design as process has evolved. Insight is achieved through an overview of classics and recent movements in innovation research, a review of core innovation concepts and fields, as well as dialogue with industrial professionals from organizations leading innovation and design.

Part 2 (Takes place at AAU Copenhagen): 

The second part provides insight in innovation and design and their staging based on the latest socio-material approaches to innovation and design. These traditions have emerged as an attempt to develop concepts and approaches enabling to search for and identify key processes and dynamics that might become central to the design of innovation and their staging. 

Form 

The students should be familiar with basic understandings of innovative processes from innovation process theory and/or science and technology studies (the STS field) on an academic master level. The program includes teacher presentations, student presentations, professional experiences and company talks as well as dialogue sessions where students will receive feedback on their presentations and projects from fellow students as well as teachers. 

As a preparation for the first assembly, participants should prepare a presentation of a problem/solution from their research, which they want to analyze from an innovation process perspective. The presentation can focus on a case and/or a challenging perspective (oral supported with ppt) within the theme of the course (It is important to describe how innovation processes could be a relevant perspective for your activities in order to provide a professional and empirical background for your own reflexive learning.) 

Between the first and second assembly participants write a 5-10 pages analysis bringing theory to bear on selected case material of their own choice. These assignments are basis for evaluation and approval of participation. In addition, participants will be asked to fill in a formal evaluation scheme.

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.
