Workshops for the Promotion and Qualification of Young Scientists (FQ-WiN)

To promote research, Europa-Universität Flensburg has developed the Flensburg Programme for Research Funding (FPFF).

The FQ-WiN program (Program for the Promotion and Qualification of Early-Stage Researchers) is Europa-Universität Flensburg’s central information source for funding and support program opportunities available to early-stage researchers on campus. FQ-WiN bundles together all of the funded positions, scholarships, services, and other forms of support offered by the EUF Department of Research, the university committees for research, scholarships, and doctoral study, the ZeBUSS and ICES research centers, the Center for Continuing Academic Education (ZWW), and the university’s Equal Opportunity Unit, among others.

The Workshops at the Center for Continuing Academic Education (ZWW) focus on the module "Qualification" in this program and offers support in the field of management, self-reflection, career development, science communication and leadership.

This program lives on feedback and suggestions from the target group on further topics.

Participation in this programme is free of charge for all junior professors and for all doctoral and postdoctoral researchers at the EUF. For coordination and organisation purposes, registration for the event is mandatory.

Description

How will scientific publishing develop in the 21st century? Over the last decades topics such as Journal Impact Factor, blind peer-review and library subscriptions have dominated the discussion. However the digital revolution has already begun to change the rules. New topics such as "article-level-metrics", "post-publication peer review" and "open data" have emerged. Open Access is becoming publicly mandated in the US and the EU, encouraging researchers to submit their work, both journal articles, book chapters and research publications, to open repositories. Preprint servers and subject repositories such as arXiv or bioRxiv have been entering the market to provide faster access to unpublished results. Open peer review is practiced by ever more journals and consortia. Post-Publication Peer Review is a new buzz word to use crowd-sourcing to evaluate scientific research. Publication of research results is at the center of the scientific enterprise. It is therefore essential not only for early career scientists to have a good overview of the changing publishing landscape. This seminar explores the ways in which the speed and network character of the internet breaks down old categories of scholarly publishing and creates new ways of communicating scientific results. In the workshop we will discuss in detail topics as open access and open science, classical and alternative ways of peer review, publication workflows for both journals and books, and analyse the publishing market and its stakeholders. Special emphasis is put on the perspectives of scholarly communication and new platforms or services which support scientists to dissiminate results of recent research faster and more efficient, in order to increase the impact of their work among the scientific community. During the workshop, participants are invited to receive concrete feedback about their specific questions. 

For participants of the certificate 10 units will be credited.

Description

Verhandeln - das tun wir sowieso täglich. Ob im Beruflichen oder im Privaten, wir sind es gewöhnt, unsere Vorstellungen, Wünsche und Bedürfnisse zu äußern und diese mit unserem Gegenüber abzugleichen. Und wir sind es auch gewöhnt, dass das meistens reibungslos verläuft und dabei keine Probleme entstehen. Was aber, wenn genau das doch geschieht? Andere ebnen uns nicht einfach den Weg? Räumen uns nicht einfach die Steine aus der Bahn? Haben konträre Wünsche und Forderungen? Behindern uns vielleicht sogar bei wichtigen Dingen? Und denken gar nicht daran, einfach nachzugeben?
Dann brauchen wir ein Konzept. Dann brauchen wir Kenntnisse, um eine Verhandlung souverän zu führen. Je wichtiger der Gegenstand der Verhandlung, desto besser muss dieses Konzept sein. Bei einer guten Verhandlung geht es nicht darum, schnelle, wohlfeile Siege davonzutragen und andere zu manipulieren, sondern darum, möglichst einen Konsens zu finden, mit dem alle Seiten leben können. Im besten Fall erzielen wir eine Win-Win-Situation. Neben der Strategie geht es beim Verhandeln um Empathie, neben dem Reden geht es um das Zuhören und statt um Positionen geht es um die wirklichen Interessen aller Beteiligten. Das Ziel einer guten Verhandlung ist der Aufbau langfristiger Beziehungen.

Description

Making time for writing in academia remains to be challenging. As initial studies have shown, it is especially difficult for young female researchers in the current context of the pandemic, with sharp inequalities in knowledge production often at the expense of researchers in and from the global South. This contrasts with the requirement, particularly for early-career researchers (ECRs), to publish fast and in high-ranking journals to 'develop' and 'sustain' in academia.
Approach and organisation
This collaborative and generative workshop provides space and time for social sciences researchers at the doctoral level who write their dissertation in English. The course is informed by an understanding of writing as a social practice, taking into account behavioural, artisanal, social and emotional habits (Sword, 2017). It also draws on postcolonial (Connell 2007; 2015; Bhambra 2007; Ashcroft, Griffiths, and Tiffin 1995) and feminist literature (Danvers, Hinton-Smith, and Webb 2019; Richardson 2001) to inform our understaning of writing1.
Participants will be asked to bring a concrete writing project to the session. Preparatory activities, such as a reading, a writing exercise or a reflective piece, are provided. The course is designed as a two-day workshop, covering four modules, moving between reflective and technical aspects of doctoral writing. However, the form, content and frequency can be adapted to the expectations of the participants of the participating institution. Depending on the pandemic, the workshop can be conducted in presence, as a virtual event or a blended format

Contents

Outline of the content
The course is divided into four blocks, as exemplified below. Each session is designed for a duration of four hours with balanced input, writing time and peer-to-peer exchange.
Block 1 The context of writing
The first session introduces the writing course and reflects on one's own writing habits and their context. Informed by Helen Sword (2017), we discuss and experience the importance of time, place, rhythms and rituals, which is followed by reflecting on the self in our writing (Hunt and Sampson, 2006). The first block intends to open up a reflexive space, drawing from creative writing strategies, including free and generative writing techniques.
Block 2 Academic writing (artisanal habits)
The second block is dedicated to artisanal academic writing techniques, focusing first on scaffolding an argument and structuring a paragraph of a thesis or book chapter (Murray, 2002). Second, we learn how to develop a journal article from the thesis (Connell, 2015) regarding the conventions of a particular international and comparative education journal.

Block 3 Writing for/ with/ among others (social habits)
The third session is oriented towards social habits, bearing in mind the audience (writing for others) while honing one own's voice (Burke, 2008). The session also addresses co-writing and writing questions alongside others (Sword, 2017), using the possibility of feedback of peer and tutors. The session will be rounded off by reflecting on some of the challenges writers face when writing in English as their second language.
Block 4 Editing (artisanal habits)
The last block revisits the artisanal habits, focusing on editing. Further techniques to improve the writing, such as forecasting, signalling and signposting, will be introduced and applied (Murray, 2002) and consider the dimensions of active/ passive, reduction/ repetition, structure/ content and concrete/ abstract binaries (Becker, 2007). Overall, it serves to enhance the legibility of participant’s writings.

Description

Poster sessions are an integral part of almost every scientific conference. Their purpose is to highlight research results, visualize them, and stimulate discussion. To draw your audience in, you need a crystal-clear message, a text format optimized for best readability and well-chosen graphics. And above all, you need to think well through how to organize your research content on the required format. Though, designing a poster is just half of the story – an effective and convincing presentation is also required to get your message across.
The workshop concept focuses on the conveyance of design and presentation skills and on the practical training how to apply these skills for an effective science communication.

For participants of the certificate 10 units will be credited.

Contents

  • The first Part of the workshop covers the main principles of design and layout techniques such as typography, colour, proportional balance, visualisation, and the use of design grids.
  • The second part takes essential presentation skills into focus, such as conceptual considerations, intended impact, dramaturgy and structure, main aspects of verbal and nonverbal communication.
  • The workshop is rounded off with the preparation and training of pitch-presentations with video recording and will be completed by a feedback sessionParticipants also learn how to conceive and develop a clearly structured poster by reducing the scientific content to the most significant points.

Methods: Lecture, discussion and analysis, practical exercises, group work, pitch presentations, video recording, feedback.

Objectives
