Track activities

Thematic seminars and workshops are the core activities in Track 3.

As a rule, the thematic seminars go for 2 – 3 days. The seminars are linked to the students’ research interests and themes. The seminars include both lectures (also open to non-NATED participants) and seminar presentations and discussions related to the seminar subject (restricted to track participants).

Seminars

The seminars include lectures on selected topics central to track 3. International partners of high academic standing are invited to the seminars and also co-operate with track leaders as discussants when the students present papers.
PhD students from outside this track may attend the seminars but the PhD students belonging to the track are prioritized with respect to giving presentations and getting feedback on their work during the seminars.

Workshops

The workshops are compulsory and concentrate on the PhD projects and are restricted to track participants. In order to make workshops relevant to the PhD candidates the activities and topics are frequently negotiated with the PhD candidates.  Topics for the workshops in 2011-2012 include the thesis’ introduction (kappe), writing a good abstract for an article, choreographing the dissertation, crafting a writerly text, normativity in writing up findings, mm. We will in particular focus on writing for publishing and methodological issues related to the candidates’ thesis. The activities in the workshops will be differentiated for the candidates depending on when they started. As we are 3 track leaders it is relatively easy for us to differentiate the workshops. This might be done in the following way:
 

  1. General introduction and examples on relevant theme (for example; writing up a discussion)
  2. The group is divided in two:
    a. The candidates working with (their general descussion in) "Kappen"
    b. The candidates working with (a discussion in) articles
  3. Whole group summing up and sharing examples

Track 3 Workshop:  Vitenskapsteoretisk posisjonering av eget prosjekt.

Vitenskapsteorien tilbyr ulike – ismer som referanseramme for hvordan forskere posisjonerer seg i og på tvers av fagfelt. På 2000-tallet har konstruktivisme blitt kritisert for i liten grad å fange inn hvordan virkeligheten viser seg gjennom tingenes materialitet i verden. Hvor viktig er denne diskusjonen for studier av politikkutforming, styring, læreplan og ledelse? Hvilke spørsmål av vitenskapsteoretisk art er relevante i arbeid med doktorgradsprosjektet?
Seminaret utfordrer kandidatene til å reflektere over alternative posisjoner og plassere eget forskningsprosjekt.
Forarbeid: Phd kandidatene sender inn 2-5 sider i forkant av workshop’en. Paperet skal refere til en eller flere artikler som er relevante for å posisjonere eget prosjekt.
Responsible: Associate Professor Gunn Søreide, University of Bergen and Associate Professor Kirsten Sivesind, University of Oslo
Location: University of Bergen
