NOTE: attendance of a seminar on Good Scientific Practice is mandatory for all GAUSS (incl. GGNB) doctoral students!

First, we will discuss some cases of scientific misconduct and the motivation of the respective cheaters. Then, appropriate and inappropriate means of handling, processing, and displaying scientific data will be discussed (e.g. sampling and statistics, image processing), with examples of "borderline" cases being presented. Then we come to the question of proper data management and long term storage of data and to the importance of keeping lab books properly. Finally, we discuss the issue of authorships.

Finally, you will be familiarized with the rules of Good Scientific Practice enacted by various organizations (University, Max-Planck-Society, DFG) and we will discuss what to do and how to act in cases where there is suspicion or evidence for scientific misconduct.

Goal: Getting to know about professional perspectives in public and private sectors and reflecting about own suitability to different career paths; setting the direction of one`s professional future by developing specific skills during the PhD project;

The workshop deals with what career means and which personal career objectives matter. Participants are introduced to different science-related career paths in the public sector (including universities, but not restricted to) and private enterprises, and which technical and personal skills matter, respectively. Moreover, participants get the opportunity to reflect their own competences and objectives as well as their suitability to these different career paths. Finally, participants develop an individual strategy to prepare their next career steps.

Comments by former participants:

  • Good starting point for career planning
  • Showed perspectives both inside and outside of academia.
  • Helpful to get impression on job chances. Broad overview on job chances for PhDs. Very good trainer.
    A new way to see the options after the PhD. There are more opportunities than expected. It also offers a new look at yourself and your potentials.
  • Dr. Gaby Schilling did not only gave valuable insights into different career options in academia and industry, but she also encouraged us to think about other aspects that play a role in finding a suitable job like free time activities, other (non-)professional skills and our personality. It was very interesting and I would recommend this course for sure. Thank you very much!
  • The workshoped thaught me to reevaluate my skills and find confidence in them.
  • This was one of the most useful workshops that I have attended! I would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to get familiar with the career options that are there and how one could find the right one for him/her.

09:00 - 10: 30 Uhr
Fostering Mental Health - Preventing Burn-Out
Causes and indicators for being trapped in a vicious circle of mental exhaustion will be presented briefly. We will then focus on mental methods for "staying sane" in academia and handle situations of distress professionally. Exercises focus on calming down and regulating emotions as well as generating the energy required to tackle challenges and difficult situations.


11:00 - 12:30 Uhr
Motivating Self
This session will be about getting back in touch with one´s own resources, needs and desires. Participants will rediscover why they entered academia at all and reorient themselves towards desirable outcomes and to the values, which are important to them. They will develop an individual strategy to nurture their wellbeing emotionally, mentally and physically, which will be the source of their professional success.

14:00 - 15: 30 Uhr
Dealing with Setbacks and Exhaustion
It is possible to deal with setbacks in a way that opens up new possibilities. So it is not about avoiding "failure" it is about framing setbacks in a healthy way. An exercise will highlight the internal abilities to get back into balance and stay strong mentally when intended results are missing.


16:00 - 17:30 Uhr
What is the big deal about Mindfulness?
Mindfulness is one element of mental strength. But there is more to mental strength. In the last webinar the six columns of emotional flexibility, leading to resilience and mental strength will be worked through. Exercises will again make it easy to transfer theory into practice.

Navigating difficult seas: Conflict management

Nobody wants to have conflicts: they are stressful and should be avoided. But conflict competence is a key aspect of professionalism and success. This workshop challenges popular views of conflict and presents a positive understanding of conflictive processes. It brings participants in contact with their already existing resources for conflict solving and shows how to use these actively to influence difficult situations positively. Furthermore, it is discussed how to address conflicts in a constructive manner and how to communicate and act professional when in conflict.

Conflicts in research organisations are manifold: e.g. between members of different status groups (administration vs. research personnel, technical assistant vs. PhD candidates), the delimitation one"s own (research) interests, dealing with competitive situations or the negotiation of working conditions. The formal and informal (evaluation) interdependency between conflict parties also plays an important role. Group (e.g. gender) specific attributions on conflict behaviour can also influence conflict dynamics.

How to develop a clear, goal oriented conflict behaviour that at the same time is respectful? The workshop provides a platform to discuss and try out different strategies taking examples and individual experiences of the participants into account.

 

Content in Brief

  • The basics conflict management
  • Conflict analysis, handling and consequences
  • Conflict and escalation dynamics
  • Discovery and professional use of individual solution resources
  • Professional communication in difficult situations
  • Dealing with hierarchy and dependence

Workshop description

During the first two half-days, we cover the following: basic writing style; refining your style; being concise and correct (including scientifically relevant grammar and punctuation issues); writing manuscripts and abstracts; and preparing figures and tables.

During the third half-day, we discuss planning, revising and proofreading your work, and consider the publication process: authorship, journal selection, submission and peer review.

Using the Zoom platform, this workshop comprises short lectures, exercises, brainstorming in breakout rooms and an open invitation to ask questions, express opinion and share experience.

Comments about workshops by John Dixon from participants:

  • Dr. Dixon did an excellent job as an instructor. The handouts were extremely helpful and handy. I would definitely recommend this course to my peers.
  • This workshop has by far been the best I"ve ever attended as a PhD student. The trainer was extremely engaging and presented the material with such enthusiasm. I learned a lot from this workshop, from writing scientifically to abstract/poster/presentations. Loved it - highly recommended!

  • John is a great, charming and very sensible teacher and definitely knows what he is talking about. He definitely showed the enthusiasm during the course he was mentioning to be the key element. The handouts/exercises were brilliant, in a simple and straightforward way. The glossary on writing may become invaluable important for future manuscripts.

  • The workshop is exactly what is supposed to be: Training on scientific communication. The instructor was excellently prepared and was able to adapt to the audience"s needs. I would definitely recommend it to anyone working in the science field.

  • John is an excellent teacher and in addition to being really informative, the course was a lot of fun. Definitely recommendable.

  • John is very experienced and it is more fun and relevant given that he has a scientific background. Strongly enjoyed these 3 days and will recommend this course to my peers.

  • John is using magic tricks for PhD students to artistically open up. Very rare, very useful. I think that"s what we all, as scientists, lack.

  • Very competent and lovely trainer; it was a lot of fun! He provides a plenty of material that I will definetly use later in my scientific career.

Workshop description

During the first half-day, we consider what makes effective and attractive posters and slides. For both, we critique examples and consider the balance of relevant text, visuals and white space. We discuss fonts, colour, alignment and more…but this not a highly technical PowerPoint clinic!

During the second half-day, we deal with oral presentations. We cover how to handle nerves, rehearsing, keeping to time, voice and body language, and handling questions. We critique a well-known orator to get some tips. You then have an opportunity to give a short presentation of around three minutes, accompanied by no more than six slides. You will receive constructive feedback on your delivery (but not on technical content) from other participants and the trainer.

Using the Zoom platform, this workshop comprises short lectures, brainstorming in breakout rooms, ample opportunity for discussion and an open invitation to ask questions, express opinion and share experience.

A note for those who are worried about giving an oral presentation!

Every participant will be giving a presentation, but you will be in a "safe" environment! It will be OK to be nervous, OK to forget what you were going to say, OK to receive constructive criticism, OK to give constructive criticism - it won"t matter and everyone will be in the same situation. It"s your opportunity to "have a go" at presenting, receive feedback and learn from others. The idea is to enjoy and have some fun!

Course description:

Scientists have to give arguments in many different contexts: in their publications, in grant applications, in lab meetings and in conference presentations. Nevertheless, the bases for strong and correct arguments are not always fully clear to them. Logic provides extremely helpful tools for scientists to develop their arguments in a coherent, well-structured and convincing way. The course introduces the most important concepts of logic:
premises and conclusions of arguments, validity and soundness of arguments, deductive vs. inductive reasoning, common types of inferences and fallacies. The idea of the course is to use these concepts as a toolbox which provides useful techniques for everyday scientific work. The participants learn how to reconstruct arguments from scientific texts, how to give well-structured and logically valid arguments, and how to avoid misunderstandings.

Participants will:

  • get to know the fundamental concepts of logic
    (validity, soundness, standard form, fallacies etc.)
  • learn to quickly identify the strengths and weaknesses of arguments
  • learn how to break arguments down into their logical structure
  • learn how to give well-structured and convincing arguments (written and orally)
  • practice analytical-thinking skills

Testimonials:

  • Really useful course. Highly recommended.
  • The course helps to realize the structure of arguments in texts and to clarify your own arguments. It is enlightening to understand which part of texts actually contains "the argument".
  • Teaches critical way of thinking and debating.
  • This workshop helped me grasp the importance of forming a valid and sound argument, both in discussions and written work. Furthermore, it helped me understand how to analyse arguments and identify fallacies and how to handle them. The trainer did everything to make sure we understood the material, I thoroughly recommend this workshop.
  • This course gave me tools to structure arguments so that they are easily understood by others. I believe this course is ideal for someone who is writing a paper or preparing his/her thesis defense.
  • Jonas was a great teacher, highly dedicated to his job and the webinar was very entertaining and informative. Will be useful for the PhD defense and the dissertation writing process!


Bemerkung :

The course is given by Dr. Jonas Zahn, Argumentationskompetenz, Berlin.



Organisatorisches:

This is an online workshop. The log-in details will be communicated to registered participants in due time.

The workshop times are 9-14h on both days. Additionally, participants need to schedule 30-60 minutes for "homework" on both days. After the workshop, appointments for individual discussions with feedback on the participants' text and/or excersises are made.
