Und worauf sollten Sie achten, wenn Sie sich für eine Promotion entscheiden?

12-13h Gute Lehre von Anfang an - Impuls aus der Hochschuldidaktik Show content

Kaum das Abschlusszeugnis in der Hand stehen viele junge Wissenschaftler_innen vor der Aufgabe, selbst Lehrveranstaltungen zu leiten. Die Meisten betreten damit didaktisches Neuland, denn schließlich sind Fragen der Planung und Konzeptionierung von Lehre nur in den seltensten Fällen Bestandteil des Studiums. Doch wann ist Lehre gut? Wie innovativ muss meine Lehre sein? Woran orientiere ich mich bei der Konzeption und Durchführung von Lehrveranstaltungen? Und wer unterstützt mich dabei, all die kleinen und großen Herausforderungen des Lehralltags zu meistern? Diese Fragen werden im Vortrag beantwortet.

14-15h Wissenschaftliches Schreiben Show content

Ohne die Forschung in angemessener Weise kommunizieren zu können, ist Wissenschaft undenkbar. Deshalb stellt das wissenschaftliche Schreiben eine der grundlegenden Fertigkeiten für die Arbeit an der Universität dar. Gerade junge Akademiker_innen müssen sich darin schulen, müssen sich ein Wissen über Textsorten und Schreibtechniken aneignen, müssen Sprachgefühl, Reflexionsvermögen und Selbstkritik üben. Zudem sollten sie zu einem "gesunden" Umgang mit dem Schreiben finden, um sich vor physischer und psychischer Überlastung zu schützen. Der Vortrag zeigt, wie sie dabei vorgehen können und welche Möglichkeiten der Unterstützung es an der FSU gibt.
