Preclinical Studies - 3R meets Desing Thinking (online)

0/15
Description:

The 3R principle (Replacement, Reduction and Refinement of Animal Experiments) is of utmost significance for research with animals and offers great potential for advancement. Design Thinking is a method to facilitate problem-solving and the development of innovative solutions in multi-disciplinary teams.

 

In this workshop we work in teams on the ethically and scientifically relevant challenge: “Accelerating the implementation of the 3Rs in animal research”. The workshop is supported by short briefings about basics concerning the 3Rs and animal research. The teams will then use design thinking methods to explore the complexity of the challenge, get to know different perspectives and develop a common understanding. All gathered information, perspectives and experiences are incorporated into the solution process creating a space between user needs and feasibility. The teams create tangible solutions by prototyping and testing of selected ideas.

Career Management

4/10
Description:

Do you want to get your own research fellowship but don’t know how to get started? The Getting Funded Workshop addresses the needs of PhD students wanting to apply for funding for their first postdoctoral position. Together we will explore what makes a research idea fundable and a research proposal reviewer friendly. Strategies on how best to present your research idea and yourself will be discussed. You will also be given the tools and the vocabulary to better write your research plan as well as sections not encountered at the paper writing stage, such as justifying choice of lab, projecting your future career aims and promoting yourself as the ideal person for the job. Finally, grant scouting information and tips will be provided about major funding sources both in Europe and the USA.

 

The Getting Funded Workshop is ideal for third year non-native English-speaking PhD students wanting to secure their own research funding for their first postdoctoral position. We recommend that those wanting to participate in this demanding writing workshop should have attended the Writing Scientific Papers Workshop or have proof of strong scientific writing ability.


Teaching - Student-centerted teaching

4/10
Description:

Teaching skills get more and more relevant for young researchers who plan their professional future in academia. The BSRT in cooperation with the “Berliner Zentrum für Hochschullehre” offers therefore the workshop:The four-day course will focus on the basics of teaching and learning at universities with a special emphasis on teaching in the biomedical fields.

 

In this interactive workshop participants will learn how to carry out goal- and audience-oriented teaching, lectures and presentations and practice teaching activities such as articulating learning goals, planning class sessions, and designing assessments. Participants will analyze specific teaching situations and learn to facilitate student learning in different situations. The workshop also provides the opportunity for participants to develop their own course. 

 

Learning objectives:

  • Participants are able to plan their courses stundent-oriented
  • Participants are able to foster students learning
  • Participants are able to design an appropriate assessment
  • Participants know different parts of the teaching role and are able to choose them adequatly according to the specific teaching situation
  • Participants present complex scientific subjects well structured and clearly.

 

Who should attend:

This course is suitable for Postdocs with little to no experience in teaching but could also be of interest for more advanced lecturers aiming to refresh or complement their didactic expertise. Advanceds Doctoral students who want to gain some teaching experience at the BSRT are also welcome. A maximum of 14 people can attend.

 

Certificate:

This course is part of Module 1 of the  Berliner Zentrum für Hochschullehre” and will be accepted for the Habilitation at the Charité.

 

Language: The workshop language is German, but can be provided in English if required. 


Teaching - Student-centerted coaching

1/10
Description:

This course offers a two-day workshop on student-centered coaching methods. In short seminars, you will learn about problem based learning (PBL) methods and other methods such as Design Thinking that are used to encourage knowledge acquisition and problem solving through group collaboration. You will learn when and why a coach is required and about the different roles a coach can assume. In teamwork, you will design and plan the PBL sessions for the next BSRT course “Introduction into research in regenerative therapies”. You will get hands-on experience in coaching during one PBL session of the follwoing BSRT introduction course under the supervision of Fabian Feutlinske. One PBL session takes usually no more than half a day. During the PBL sessions, you will guide the teams of new doctoral researcher and help them in their transition from students who are used to passively acquire knowledge in lectures and from text books to becoming the next generation of researcher who take matters into their own hands and solve problems independently.

 

Requirements

You need to have already participated in the BSRT course “Introduction into research in regenerative therapies”

 

Tutor

Fabian Feutlinske has a PhD in Biochemisty and Molecular Biology from the Freie Universität Berlin and several years of coaching experience. He moderated the PBL sessions in the BSRT introduction courses and he has been the BioThinking Coach in various research projects funded by the Einstein Center for Regenerative Therapies.

 

Duration

Two workshop days and one day hands-on experience in the following BSRT course “Introduction into research in regenerative therapies”.
