  • Workshop "Workshop: Leading in Science"

    25/26.03.2019, 9-17 h each, seminar room 324 of the SEZ, Arnold-Sommerfeld-Straße 6, Clausthal-Zellerfeld. Registrations until 10.03.2019(graduiertenakademie@tu-clausthal.de).

    Leadership tasks in science are becoming increasingly important, whether in project groups, work teams, between teammates, administrative staff or even the leadership of students and auxiliary staff. Leadership in science fails not only because of a lack of tools and knowledge of appropriate methodology. Efficiency-driven management approaches from the business world often do not fit the world of science with its open questions. But how can leadership in science still succeed? The complexity of tasks and the degree of change in teams are usually high in science. This makes the approach of transformational leadership all the more effective. Transformational leadership means that the participants follow their own intrinsic motives and develop a high level of responsibility and willingness to perform through a jointly shared vision.

    In science, leadership takes place in many different ways - not only from supervisor to employee, but also in the opposite direction from employee to supervisor and laterally at eye level between equals. This workshop is about getting to know the Transformational Leadership model and applying it to one's own action challenges. Participants will find answers to the questions: - What do I inspire myself to do and how can I inspire others as a result? - How can leadership and influence succeed even if I do not have a formal leadership role? - How can leadership succeed even between academic and non-academic staff? What is helpful to keep in mind? - How does leadership succeed for me the other way around - upwards? - What do the findings mean for my practical everyday life?

    The participants: - get to know the model of transformational leadership - recognize and reflect on their own possibilities and potentials to motivate and "take people along" in complex situations in order to achieve something together. - consult each other collegially in their (leadership) challenges.

    In the workshop, PhD students learn basic methods and techniques from leadership theory. In experience-oriented exercises and inputs, they reflect on their own (leadership) challenges and develop their own strategies for action. Didactic - methodical means: In order to reach the participants in a sustainable and practical way, the didactic-methodical focus is on the application of the theory on the basis of own "hotspot topics" in the cooperation as well as the collegial exchange and consultation in the group.

  • Workshop "Publication Strategies

    04.04.2019, 9 am - 5 pm, meeting room 311 of the SEZ, Arnold-Sommerfeld-Straße 6, Clausthal-Zellerfeld. Depending on the registration either in English or German language. Registrations until 21.03.2019(graduiertenakademie@tu-clausthal.de).

    "Publish or perish" - this guiding principle is more valid than ever in science today. The motivations for scientists to publish are very diverse and range from the proof and dissemination of research results, to strengthening their own reputation, to securing their livelihood in the context of a scientific career. The quality of research is generally measured by the visibility of scientific results. In this context, the quality but above all the quantity of publications plays a prominent role and bibliometric factors are gaining more and more importance for the measurement of scientific performance. At the same time, the possibilities offered by publication platforms are at least as diverse as the scientists who want to use them. Thus, it is important for young scientists to learn how to present their scientific results at an early stage, to know the possibilities of publishing and to develop publication strategies. The workshop is aimed at young scientists who have already produced their own research results and want to publish them as part of their strategic career planning. Participants will learn about various forms of scientific publication.Participants will learn about different forms of scientific publication, gain insight into the structure and quality criteria of a publication, and discuss strategic concepts for the presentation of scientific results. A "publication roadmap" will be developed against the background of the participants' own scientific career.

    Workshop program:

    - Overview of publication platforms (speaker) - Quality assurance and quality measurement of scientific publications (speaker) - Quality instead of quantity - what characterizes a good publication (open discussion) - Open Access - pros and cons (group work, followed by discussion in plenary) - Adhering to the rules of good scientific practice when publishing (speaker) - The 4 questions when publishing (group work, discussion in plenary): - What do I publish? - When do I publish? - How do I publish? - Where do I publish? - Design of an individual publication roadmap (guided self-work, presentation in plenary)

    May 16-17, 2019, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. each, seminar room 324 of the SEZ, Arnold-Sommerfeld-Straße 6, Clausthal-Zellerfeld. Depending on the registration either in English or German language. Registrations until 02.05.2019(graduiertenakademie@tu-clausthal.de).

    Target group:

    Young scientists and researchers working together in fixed or loose teams; working/research teams who want to work on their problem-solving skills and conflict management.

    DeepL description:

    Unresolved factual problems can quickly lead to interpersonal conflict. Conversely, unresolved conflicts can cause problems. In order to manage such situations at work, it is important to be able to distinguish between problems and conflicts and to have appropriate resolution strategies for both situations. The ability to deal constructively with conflicts is crucial for teamwork, and problem-solving skills are important for effectively designing work processes.

    Topics in the workshop:

    - Recognizing and describing problems - Developing and implementing solutions to problems - Recognizing conflicts and developing solutions - Communication for dealing with conflicts - Measures for transferring what has been learned to everyday work In practical exercises, participants learn methods for solving problems and dealing with conflicts. The aim of the workshop is to increase the participants' own conflict and problem-solving skills.

  • Workshop "How to write promising grant proposals in Science"

    06.06.2019, 9-17 Uhr, Seminarraum 324 des SWZ, Arnold-Sommerfeld-Straße 6, Clausthal-Zellerfeld. Je nach Anmeldung wahlweise in englischer oder deutscher Sprache. Anmeldungen bis 23.05.2019(graduiertenakademie@tu-clausthal.de).

    Successful third party funding acqusition is one crucial performance indicator in science. Moreover, good scientific projects need financial support from third party funding. In light of limited public funding, the securing of sources of financial support is an important task for a scientist. However, for many early - career scientists writing grant applications poses some difficulties and at first glance seems overwhelming. Even though there is no guaranteed success, the methods and instruments of writing proposals can be learnt.A prerequisite is an attractive project concept.If a convincingly formulated application is submitted, the chances of securing funding are good. This workshop delivers proven grant application knowledge. It shows how strategic considerations naturally lead to a sound proposal. The participants receive theoretical input and engage with the various aspects through guided excercises. These include group excercises, individual excercises, both with guided plenum discussions.


    • The fundraising process in science (input from trainer, individual and group excercise, plenum discussion) • Overview of the fundraising lanscape in Germany and the EU (input from trainer) • Changing the perspective: the reviewers point of view (group excercise, plenum discussion) • The logic and essence of a grant proposal (input from trainer) • Basics of proposal writing (input from trainer, individual and group exercises, plenum discussions) • Strategic considerations: structure and style (input from trainer, group excercises, plenum discussions) • Proposal writing: My next steps (individual excercise)

    At a later stage individual feedback will be given to proposal exposés.

    Target group: experienced PhDs and Postdocs

  • Workshop "Negotiating according to the Harvard Principle

    25/26.06.2019, 9-17 h each, seminar room 324 of the SEZ and meeting room 311 of the SEZ, both located at Arnold-Sommerfeld-Straße 6, Clausthal-Zellerfeld. Registrations until 11.06.2019(graduiertenakademie@tu-clausthal.de).

    Why do some people succeed quite easily in achieving their goals, while others tend to lose out? Negotiating is a craft that can be learned and for which there are tools and strategies. Negotiating is our daily business. We do it day in and day out and in very different situations and contexts: We negotiate about objectives at work, about the salary we want to earn, about vacation, or even how tasks can be distributed sensibly and fairly. In the process, most people do not think about how they go about it. Often this happens unconsciously and rather intuitively, mostly with very different results.

    Aim of the workshop: The goal of this workshop is to consciously deal with their personal negotiation behavior and to improve it in order to be able to deal professionally and successfully even in difficult situations and with challenging negotiating partners.

    Central guiding questions are: - Which negotiation strategies do I use and how can I be successful and achieve good results? - How can I achieve more than a compromise in difficult negotiation situations and with difficult partners? - How do I succeed in negotiating fairly with the negotiating partner and at the same time tough on the issue? - How can I consciously integrate negotiation strategies into my everyday life and assert myself better?

    The workshop is about how you can develop negotiation strategies that are really convincing and find new ways in impasses to develop common goals from opposing positions.

    You learn to assess others in their personality and their negotiation behavior. You will learn procedures, strategies, methods and attitudes of negotiation according to the principles of the Harvard Concept and put these into practice in negotiation exercises.

    You will have the opportunity to bring in your own negotiation situations, to try them out and to receive feedback in order to improve your negotiation skills.

    Didactic - methodical means: In order to reach the participants in a sustainable and practical way, the didactic-methodical focus is on the application of the theory on the basis of own "hot spot topics" in the cooperation as well as the collegial exchange and consultation in the group.

  • WiMINToring: Workshop "Leading meetings in a goal-oriented way".

    Sept. 10, 2019, 9:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m., Clausthal Environmental Technology Research Center (CUTEC, foyer and seminar rooms on the first floor, Leibnizstr. 23, 38678 Clausthal-Zellerfeld). In German. The event takes place within the framework of WiMINToring for the participants of the mentoring program of the TU Clausthal.

    Who doesn't know that - meetings in the working group or in university committees that seem to drag on endlessly and in the end again no binding decisions have been made? But how do you succeed in moderating in a scientific environment in a confident and goal-oriented manner? The foundation is laid in good preparation, for example with a clear target group analysis and realistic time planning. During the moderation itself, you promote the work process by visualizing the content in a memorable way. In addition to suitable visualization tools, you also need verbal and non-verbal communication strategies. These can be learned and will be presented and practiced in the workshop: Thus, all participants will get the chance to design a short meeting for their own everyday university work, to lead it in the group and to receive collegial feedback.

    Objectives - You will have moderation techniques that create a good and goal-oriented working atmosphere. - Depending on the group and the environment, you will be able to switch flexibly between different communication strategies in order to control the team process with confidence.

    Contents - Phases of a meeting - Moderation techniques - Visualizations for processing the topics - Question techniques - Body language - Feedback culture

    Methodology - Content-related impulses - Small group work - Moderated plenary rounds - Practical work: conducting a short meeting yourself with feedback.

    Scientists don't usually do research for the money. Research has more to do with being curious and having an urge to discover. The inner explorer drive can often be sabotaged by odds and ends of everyday work life: Dealing with paperwork, waiting for supplies/permission/time slots/other people, or being assigned tasks that have nothing to do with your project....

    Back to the basics - prioritizing in everyday work - selecting according to the Pareto principle - delegating instead of micromanaging - automating processes -Changing the work culture in your own environment - Synergizing with colleagues - Artfully eliminating tasks

    In this workshop I assume that you basically like what you do. From this follows the question: How to do mainly THAT and reduce the distracting rest? This workshop is not a time management seminar. We are trying to reduce work. I am also concerned with long-term solutions. Short-term gains that result in no one talking to you afterwards are off the table.

    Your personal toolbox This workshop provides a toolbox of possibilities that you can apply in your daily work life. Not all tools fit all personal situations, but with several possibilities there is a good chance that some of them will work. Of course, situations will only change if the approaches from this training are applied in real life. That's why a part of the seminar is dedicated to implementing your own ideas. Therefore please bring a laptop.

  • Workshop "Personality and Leadership

    Nov. 19-20, 2019, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. each day, seminar room 324/meeting room 311 of the SEZ, Arnold-Sommerfeld-Strasse 6, Clausthal-Zellerfeld. In German language. Registrations until 05.11.2019(graduiertenakademie@tu-clausthal.de).

    What makes me stand out in my personality? What strengths and potentials characterize me and how can I fully utilize them in the various leadership situations at the university? It is not uncommon for academics to find themselves in challenging professional-lateral or hierarchical leadership situations. Here, our personality influences how we succeed in shaping leadership and collaboration flexibly and adapted to the situation. The workshop invites you to take an intensive look at your own personality and leadership. Content: - Getting to know the JPP - Personality Profile (Jungian Personality Profile) - Examination of one's own personality patterns and potentials - Inputs on current leadership models and theories - Situational and different - "leadership space" university - Application of the JPP to one's own leadership challenges in collegial exchange and feedback.

    Learning objectives of the event: The aim of the seminar is to sensitize the participants to consciously recognize their own strengths and resources in leadership in order to be able to use them purposefully. They - get to know current leadership models - recognize their personal leadership potentials and resources, - reflect on their ways of thinking and behaving in leadership situations, - learn to exploit and use their potentials in a more targeted way, - create new room for maneuver by achieving a more precise self-perception.

    Teaching methods: The didactic-methodical focus is on practical work and experience-oriented exercises in changing small groups, supported by the coach. This group work is supplemented by short theoretical inputs and reflection rounds in the plenum as well as collegial consultation. Various analytical models are used to approach the topic from different perspectives.

    In this workshop we work with the JPP (Jungian Personality Profile), a personality profile that highlights typical characteristics of one's own personality and is based on the developmental theory of C.G. Jung. According to C.G. Jung, every person is unique, but acts in a typical way according to certain tendencies and patterns. In this workshop you will get to know the JPP, a scientifically based instrument that helps you to better assess yourself and others and to further develop cooperation and leadership.

  • Workshop "SpeedReading"

    Dec. 12-13, 2019, on Dec. 12, 2019 9 a.m.-5 p.m., on Dec. 13, 2019 9 a.m.-1 p.m., seminar room 119 of the University Computer Center, TU Clausthal, Erzstr. 18, 38678 Clausthal-Zellerfeld. In German language. Registrations until 28.11.2019(graduiertenakademie@tu-clausthal.de).

    Textbooks and secondary literature want to be read, the selection and evaluation of scripts and technical texts is still to come and the time for submission is getting closer! How is one supposed to become master (or woman) of the information overload? When are you supposed to read it all? And how can you keep it all and access it safely?

    Goal In just 1.5 days, you will double or quintuple your personal reading speed. You will learn how to securely store the information that is relevant to you so that you can retrieve it in a targeted manner. You will learn different techniques for different types of texts and practice them during the seminar.

    Contents ➡ Determining your current reading speed Everyone recognizes their own reading speed without anyone in the group being outed as a possible "slow reader" ➡ Training div. reading techniques for different reading requirements You will learn speed reading, cross reading and diagonal reading. One technique allows you to read quickly AND accurately, another allows you to skim and probe texts very quickly. Always, the presentation of the reading technique alternates with practical exercises, so that by the end of the seminar you will have mastered all of these techniques with confidence ➡ Save and retain better Reading is not the same as learning. You will be given some simple memorization techniques to help you remember content permanently ➡ Concentration training Some people read a page, arrive at the bottom, and realize when they turn the page that their mind was somewhere else entirely. Save time by using a simple concentration exercise to keep your mind on the task at hand and avoid having to read the text twice ➡ And what happens after the course? You can take our unique interval training, which will already inspire you in the seminar, home and/or to the office. You will receive all audio files and exercises. With only one weekly training you will get your new status quo and from two trainings (last only 10 min) you will increase even more after the course!
