Effective communication with supervisors and teammates can be challenging at times. Everyone is faced with pressure, deadlines, and responsibilities. Mix these factors with different working styles, hierarchy, and multicultural working environments and becomes understandable that breakdowns in communication could occur. This training is designed to provide participants with effective communication strategies for successful interactions in these environments.
This scientific English writing workshop is designed to help researchers develop the English communication skills they need to further their academic career. The goal of this training is to help familiarize participants with the writing conventions adopted in their particular field and provide them with practical tools to improve their English academic writing skills.
Scientific honesty and the observance of the principles of good scientific practice are essential in all scientific work which seeks to expand our knowledge and which is intended to earn respect from the public. The principles of good scientific practice can be violated in many ways – from a lack of care in the application of scientific methods or in documenting data, to serious scientific misconduct through deliberate falsification or deceit. Every Ph.D. student should have a professional understanding of these topics.
A doctorate is a complex and long lasting project. If it is not usefully structured from the beginning it is easy to lose sight of the bigger picture and often also motivation in a maze of possibilities. This S4 workshop is designed to help new doctoral researchers gain insights into proper project management.
