Course aim 
  • Through participation in this course, the PhD student acquires knowledge and understanding of the use of a number of professional online tools designed to support a career in research. The course emphasizes acquisition of both theoretical and practical knowledge about research registration, profiling and evaluation, as well as the growing focus on Open Science.  

    The course leans on the idea behind Scholarly Communication, which is defined by the Association of College & Research Libraries as "the system through which research and scientific publications are registered, subjected to quality assessment, disseminated to the scientific community, and preserved for future use." (ACRL Scholarly Communications Committee2003)  

    The purpose of the course is to enable PhD students to create their own sustainable strategies for publishing and disseminating research and research results, and to provide them with tools for evaluation. The course will address both traditional academic tools and introduce more recent methods.  


    The course specifically addresses the following topics:  

    Open Science/ Open Knowledge - including Open Access publishing  

    ·        Scholarly Communication: What does it mean to you as a researcher? 

    ·        Research registration - introduction to research registration and researcher profiles in VBN (Aalborg University's research portal) and associated systems

    ·        Researcher profiling – to strengthen the exposure of ​own research and research profile

    ·        Research evaluation – introduction to traditional and new methods including BFI, h-index and alternative metrics

    ·        Copyright and plagiarism for PhD students with a primary focus on the thesis

    The course is aimed at all PhD students, and the teachers will facilitate an interdisciplinary discussion among the participants using Dilemma Games among other things. 

    Course frame 

    The course is an independent part of the course series offered to PhD students at Aalborg University Library. The course is announced at Plan2Learn and Moodle, where more information and course material are available. The course is available to PhD students from all Danish universities. 

    The course varies between presentations, exercises and plenary discussions. The exercises take place in groups where the students either discuss or do course-related hands-on assignments. In addition, there is a final test, which is assessed as "passed/failed". In order to obtain course ECTS points, your presence is required on the course day along with a “passed” final test. 

    The course is primarily aimed at PURE users. If you do not have access to AAU's PURE installation, you will still be able to use what you have learned when you get back to your own institution. However, there will be local differences in the options offered by the system. 


    The course is in English. 

    There is a reading list attached to the course. 

    Planning and teaching: The VBN Team 

    Course learning targets 

    The course provides the PhD student with a toolbox for strategic focus on researcher profiling, including:

    ·      How to get an overview of registration and dissemination requirements for PhD research results in a scientific context. This includes the actual PhD thesis, as
           well as preparation of different types of publications and profiles. 

    ·      How to acquire new knowledge regarding opportunities and strategies for publishing research, including Open Access.   

    ·      Providing the PhD student with skills to develop communication strategies. This may include an understanding of how to work with Open Science e.g. through
           qualitative and quantitative metrics.

    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 Academic Information Searching - Methods, sources and documentation - Copenhagen (2022)

Description:

This course is about the various aspects that are important when searching for literature as part of your PhD.

  • Structured literature search – How to apply a structured method to prepare and carry out your search e.g. for a literature review
  • Evaluating and organising your search - 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
  • Other perspectives on searching – How to use text mining, citation search and other tools to find relevant literature

We recommend that you take this course in the beginning of your PhD.

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

Preparation prior to the course: Please read the articles on the reading list (will be attached later). 

AssignmentsThere will be both class activities and a home assignment. The home assignment will be introduced during the course. You are required to complete the assignment after the course and hand it in by a specific date, usually a week later

  • Description: 

    The course is for PhD students in the first half of their PhD programme. AAU wants to increase the awareness on good data handling practises and compliance with laws and regulations. The course objective is thus to promote good research practises by helping the participant make informed choices in relation to planning and executing research processes such as data collecting, data analysis, data storing and sharing. 

    The course will take a closer look at what constitutes research data and introduces data handling methods and practises. The course consists of two half-day workshops aimed at supporting the individual PhD student in planning the data handling that is inherent to the PhD project. 

    15 – 16 hours of homework drafting a data management plan (DMP) is to be expected between 1st and 2nd workshop. At sign-up, participants will be enrolled in both workshops, and attendance at both are required.

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.
  • Description: 

    The course is for PhD students in the first half of their PhD programme. AAU wants to increase the awareness on good data handling practises and compliance with laws and regulations. The course objective is thus to promote good research practises by helping the participant make informed choices in relation to planning and executing research processes such as data collecting, data analysis, data storing and sharing. 

    The course will take a closer look at what constitutes research data and introduces data handling methods and practises. The course consists of two half-day workshops aimed at supporting the individual PhD student in planning the data handling that is inherent to the PhD project. 

    15 – 16 hours of homework drafting a data management plan (DMP) is to be expected between 1st and 2nd workshop. At sign-up, participants will be enrolled in both workshops, and attendance at both are required.

    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.
    Course aim 
    • Through participation in this course, the PhD student acquires knowledge and understanding of the use of a number of professional online tools designed to support a career in research. The course emphasizes acquisition of both theoretical and practical knowledge about research registration, profiling and evaluation, as well as the growing focus on Open Science.  

      The course leans on the idea behind Scholarly Communication, which is defined by the Association of College & Research Libraries as "the system through which research and scientific publications are registered, subjected to quality assessment, disseminated to the scientific community, and preserved for future use." (ACRL Scholarly Communications Committee2003)  

       The purpose of the course is to enable PhD students to create their own sustainable strategies for publishing and disseminating research and research results, and to provide them with tools for evaluation. The course will address both traditional academic tools and introduce more recent methods.  


      The course specifically addresses the following topics:  

      Open Science/ Open Knowledge - including Open Access publishing  

      ·        Scholarly Communication: What does it mean to you as a researcher? 

      ·        Research registration - introduction to research registration and researcher profiles in VBN (Aalborg University's research portal) and associated systems

      ·        Researcher profiling – to strengthen the exposure of ​own research and research profile

      ·        Research evaluation – introduction to traditional and new methods including BFI, h-index and alternative metrics

      ·        Copyright and plagiarism for PhD students with a primary focus on the thesis

      The course is aimed at all PhD students, and the teachers will facilitate an interdisciplinary discussion among the participants using Dilemma Games among other things. 

      Course frame 

      The course is an independent part of the course series offered to PhD students at Aalborg University Library. The course is announced at Plan2Learn and Moodle, where more information and course material are available. The course is available to PhD students from all Danish universities. 

      The course varies between presentations, exercises and plenary discussions. The exercises take place in groups where the students either discuss or do course-related hands-on assignments. In addition, there is a final test, which is assessed as "passed/failed". In order to obtain course ECTS points, your presence is required on the course day along with a “passed” final test. 

      The course is primarily aimed at PURE users. If you do not have access to AAU's PURE installation, you will still be able to use what you have learned when you get back to your own institution. However, there will be local differences in the options offered by the system. 


      The course is in English. 

      There is a reading list attached to the course. 

      Planning and teaching: The VBN Team 

      Course learning targets 

      The course provides the PhD student with a toolbox for strategic focus on researcher profiling, including:

      ·      How to get an overview of registration and dissemination requirements for PhD research results in a scientific context. This includes the actual PhD thesis, as well as preparation of different types of publications and profiles. 

      ·      How to acquire new knowledge regarding opportunities and strategies for publishing research, including Open Access.   

      ·      Providing the PhD student with skills to develop communication strategies. This may include an understanding of how to work with Open Science e.g. through qualitative and quantitative metrics.

      The course is an independent part of the course series offered to PhD students at Aalborg University Library. The course is announced at Plan2Learn and Moodle, where more information and course material are available. The course is available to PhD students from all Danish universities. 

      The course varies between presentations, exercises and plenary discussions. The exercises take place in groups where the students either discuss or do course-related hands-on assignments. In addition, there is a final test, which is assessed as "passed/failed". In order to obtain course ECTS points, your presence is required on the course day along with a “passed” final test. 

      The course is primarily aimed at PURE users. If you do not have access to AAU's PURE installation, you will still be able to use what you have learned when you get back to your own institution. However, there will be local differences in the options offered by the system. 


      The course is in English. 

      There is a reading list attached to the course.

      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 the summer school on human-in-the-loop and learning with limited labels. The summer school takes place in Denmark and is the fourteenth summer school jointly organized by DIKU, DTU, and AAU.

Topics

Artificial intelligence is often built on human experience and for interaction with humans. Learning from humans is both concerned with 1) reducing the amount of manual labor required for humans to teach artificial systems how to solve tasks and 2) making artificial systems understand and learn from human behavior. The former is traditionally called active learning, while the latter is sometimes called human-robot collaborations.

This summer school will give an introduction to artificial learning with humans in the loop, present state-of-the-art research of the field, and will include project work, where the participants make a small programming project relating their research with the topics of the summer school.

ECTS: 3

Important dates

  • Registration and payment: March – June 2022
  • Poster submission: August 1, 2022
  • Summer school: August 15. – 19., 2022

Description: 

The course is for PhD students in the first half of their PhD programme. AAU wants to increase the awareness on good data handling practises and compliance with laws and regulations. The course objective is thus to promote good research practises by helping the participant make informed choices in relation to planning and executing research processes such as data collecting, data analysis, data storing and sharing. 

The course will take a closer look at what constitutes research data and introduces data handling methods and practises. The course consists of two half-day workshops aimed at supporting the individual PhD student in planning the data handling that is inherent to the PhD project. 

15 – 16 hours of homework drafting a data management plan (DMP) is to be expected between 1st and 2nd workshop. At sign-up, participants will be enrolled in both workshops, and attendance at both are required.

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.

Description: Good Academic Writing is vital to the success of any academic who wants to further his or her career. As an academic, it is expected that you publish and present. That is just the way it is.

It can be intimidating to write well in a non-native language and feel confident. This course will provide you with the skills you need to move forward confidently in your English academic writing. In addition to in-class time, you will get 1-1 time with me, work in small groups and have an online platform to ask questions and have them answered. I will provide you with infdividual feedback that will strengthen your skills. 

We will look at:
  • Publication Process
  • What editors look for (based on instructor’s correspondence with editors)
  • Peer Review Process
  • Writing a letter to the editor (participants given tips from editors that instructor has contacted)
  • Questions to ask yourself before you submit
  • Plagiarism
  • Punctuation for Academic Writing
  • Effective Academic Writing
  • Combining sentences and ideas smoothly

Description:

The topic is creative thinking in research. It offers a deep understanding of creative thinking together with a toolbox and guidelines the student can use to make room for creative thinking and methodology in own research. The systematic use of creative thinking can be particularly helpful in the generation of new ideas, hypotheses, experimental designs and in data interpretation as well as in the communication of research.

Learning objectives:

- To get a firsthand experience with creative thinking and realize the impact it can have on your normal thinking process.
- To understand that the way we think determines what we can be aware of and how we interpret our results
- To understand why and how creative thinking influence knowledge production in research
- To be able to think more flexibly and original, while doing research
- To understand how you can integrate creative thinking in your existing research method – both in theory and in practice

Teaching methods:

The course is organized as a 2-day online workshop consisting of a mix of small lectures and exercises that train creative
thinking in research. The workshop will focus on getting a firsthand experience with creative thinking in relation to own
scientific work. There will also be time for reflecting upon how creative thinking can be implemented in own research process
as well as collaboration with other researchers. After the workshop, participants will have access to both analogue and digital
training exercises to continue training and development of a creative research practice, both individually and in peer groups.

Criteria for assessment:

Assignment where the participant experiment with- and reflect on the use of creative thinking in own research process

Welcome to Project Management of Research and Development -B (2022)


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
  • Apply important negotiating skills 

 Course structure:
  • 2 consecutive days consisting of a mix of introductions and exercises individually and in groups.
  • Two assignments related to actual skills is to be send in before the workshop

Completion of the course: Handing in assignments and participating in the course are criteria for passing the course.

Course program: A detailed program will be send by email upon acceptance and in due time for preparations.

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 Professional Communication -B (2022)


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 different type of communications in online video laboratories where the participants are asked to make two presentations of both a self-selected subject and a self-selected situation, for a live presentation and a pre-recorded pitch. The course is organized in three parts: First, there is a presentation of concepts at a seminar with practical exercises and group discussions. Second, the participants prepare two presentations, which are presented in the followed video laboratories. Third, at the end of the seminar the participants are asked to set up a personal plan for improvement. Before and during the course, participants receive a collection of relevant articles and other material. The issues raised in this course will not be subject-based but participant-based on a general level for scientific communication.

Objectives: The objective is to train and improve the participants’ skills in oral communication especially at scientific conferences and in university teaching.

Welcome to Stakeholder and user-involvement in technological innovation and implementation: Theoretical and practical aspects (2022)


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 the two first days are 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 fourth 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). The third day is allocated to preparation of the presentation, and we will use the group work and discussions during the first two days to qualify the presentations. 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.

Program:

Day 1, morning: Socio-technical understandings of technology. Lecturer: Lars Botin [CPH CAMPUS]
Day 1, afternoon: Responsible and sustainable technological innovation and implementation. Lecturer: Tom Børsen [CPH CAMPUS]
Day 2, morning: Action research. Lecturer: Lars Bo Henriksen [CPH CAMPUS]

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.

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 PBL and Facilitations skills (2022)

PBL (problem based, project organized learning) is the DNA for AAU and is based on a long history of experiential and experimental developments combined with a theoretical underpinning. Today, PBL is practiced all over the world, however not to the same degree as at AAU and many international PhD students have never experienced this educational model before and do not understand the learning philosophy embedded and the daily practices.

The aim of this PhD course is that the PhD students understand and reflect on the systemic PBL approach with strong institutional culture in the research work as well as in education. As part of this environment, PhD students, especially newcomers, should gain a better understanding of what PBL is, the learning principles and practices behind Aalborg PBL model, the collaborative project work, how to facilitate students’ projects and learn how to handle various problems and projects.

Learning objectives:

•The history of the PBL principles and models, especially Aalborg PBL Model.
•The research on PBL in engineering and science
•Various types of problems and projects
•Facilitator's role and different facilitation styles in a PBL environment
•Identify (potential) challenges in facilitating learning in a PBL environment
•Develop strategies to address (potential) challenges in facilitating learning in a PBL environment
•Evaluate different strategies to improve one owns teaching practice and facilitation skills in a PBL environment
•Provide peer-feedback

Teaching methods:

The course employs several teaching methods, namely:

•Self-study activities (individual assignment and as preparation for course sessions)
•Small lectures and hands-on exercises (in the face to face course sessions)
•Group work
•Reflective team exercises on facilitation
•Peer and written feedback.

Criteria for assessment:

•Two assignments (i.e. one before the course starts and one during the course)
•Active participation in the course sessions by, for example, carrying out exercises, contribute to group work and discussions, provide constructive peer-feedback.
