WWU Graduate Centre Events

Academics today are expected to possess a wide range of capabilities that encompass disciplinary expertise, academic skills, and project, time and self management. All of these skills are as relevant to professions as is the ability to lead or being a good communicator. The WWU Graduate Centre works closely together with other institutions at the WWU to address career development needs of doctoral candidates and postdocs, providing them with varied and extensive skills development programme.

    European Doctoral Summer School

    Hosted in the beautiful city of York, UK from 8-11 July 2019, the 2nd Annual European Doctoral Summer School provided a unique opportunity for 15 exceptional doctoral research students (5 each from the Universities of York, Münster and Maastricht) to come together to develop their professional skills, share and exchange ideas and network.

    Each of the collaborating Universities have in common a rich history, vibrant culture and commitment to developing and supporting research excellence. The Graduate Centre at the University of Münster, the York Graduate Research School and the Staff Career Centre of Maastricht University (in collaboration with the department of Internationalisation) each provide excellent programmes of training and support to enable research students to achieve their potential as leaders in industry, academia or third sector. The doctoral school brings together the best of that training to enable exceptional doctoral students to come together as an international community of practitioners who aspire to change the world through exceptional research.


    York was such an amazing host this year. Maastricht is in charge of Summer School 2020 and we will definitely keep you all posted :). Click here to see the this year's programme and here to see how doctoral candidates benefited from last year's summer school in Münster.


    We are grateful to our colleagues from International Office, whose involvement was essential in making the last year's and this year's summer school happen.

  • 15.01.2020 / 09:00–17:00 / Wie wirke ich auf andere? Die eigene Außenwirkung optimieren (für Postdocs)

    Stets hinterlassen wir bei unserem Gegenüber einen bestimmten Eindruck. Ist dieser Eindruck tatsächlich so, wie wir es vermuten? Und kommen wir wirklich so an, wie wir gerne ankommen würden? In diesem Seminar erhalten Sie Rückmeldungen zu Ihrer Außenwirkung in Rede-und Gesprächs¬situationen. Und Sie erproben Veränderungs- und Verbesse-rungsmöglichkeiten.
    Bausteine des Seminars: Feedback mit und ohne Videounter¬stützung. Welchen Eindruck hinterlassen Körperausdruck, Stim¬me und Sprechweise? Wie kommuniziere ich Nähe und Distanz, Zugänglichkeit und Souveränität? Zahlreiche praktische Übungen zu Auftreten und Außenwirkung.


    Ergebnisse
    – Sie sind in der Lage, Stimme und Körpersprache als wichtige Bestandteile Ihrer Außenwirkung zu reflektieren
    – Sie haben individuelle Verhaltensalternativen, die sie gezielt einsetzen können, um Ihre Außenwirkung zu beeinflussen
    – Sie können Ihren Kommunikationsstil verändern, um den Eindruck von Nähe oder Distanz zu erzeugen und so auf Hierarchiesituationen angemessen zu reagieren
