    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.

    • Publication Process
    • Punctuation for Academic Writing
    • Academic Words and Phrases
    • 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
    • Parts of a Journal Article (With tips on how to make each part effective)
    • How to evaluate journal requirements

    I am an Academic English Specialist who brings an extensive background in Academic Writing instruction and editing.

    Welcome to Applying the Danish Code of Conduct for Research Integrity to your Research -A (2023)


    Description: This course examines the Danish Code of Conduct for Research Integrity that guides research practices of scientists, researchers and their collaborators. The course will briefly introduce the principles of research integrity, dwell on the basic standards for conducting responsible research - from the planning phase to the dissemination of results, and also shortly introduce the current administration for misconducts. The course is based on the Danish Code of Conduct for Research Integrity (Ministry of Higher Education and Science, 2014), that was accepted by all Danish Universities. The course will include cases and supplementary material to illustrate research integrity through examples participants can work with and think about. The course will be a mix of lectures and group-based workshops, including discussions pertaining to the participants' own challenges. Participants will receive the detailed program, materials, and instructions for preparation in due time of the course. Some work effort prior to and after the course shall be expected.

    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".

    The science system is ongoingly transformed by the changes in society towards being increasingly contextualized and expected to support the solving of grand challenges as presented through the global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

    Since more and more science is largely defined by sustainability problems in society, the application of research is crucial to contribute to societal impacts towards sustainability.

    This course is devoted to PhD researchers from all faculties.

    Being applied, and aiming for sustainable societal impacts, have implications for research and researchers. The aims of the course are:

    • To set focus on the importance and roles of the researcher towards societal impacts and collaborative knowledge production.
    • To unfold and critically reflect upon how the research approach influences the change-implications of the research and elucidate possibilities for change agency.
    • To relate the participants research to the discourse of societal impacts towards sustainability.

    The participants will be asked to bring own their research to foster reflections that can feed into research practice.

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

    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 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 (2023)


    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 Project Management and Interpersonal Skills - A (2023)


    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.

    • 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.

    • 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 Writing and Reviewing Scientific Papers, Fall (2023)


    Description: The aim is to improve the participants' competence in writing and reviewing scientific papers. The course takes a practical approach and focuses on the craftsmanship needed as a scientist. It is recommended that this course is taken during the first period of a PhD study. PhD students from all areas of engineering and science can benefit from attending, although the course to some extent favors "hard science" disciplines. The discussions will address general issues related to scientific writing. The course is organised in three activities. First, the PhD students are asked to study selected literature on the subject. Second, two one-day seminars are devoted to presentations by the organisers, discussions amongst participants, and lectures by invited speakers. Third, the PhD students are required to practice both writing and reviewing in specially designed exercises. A collection of papers will be distributed before the course. In addition, a reading list of relevant books and papers is given.


    NB! Please observe that attendance is absolutely mandatory throughout the two dates mentioned above. Participants, who are absent during part of one or both of these two dates will not receive any credits.
