LECTURES

Purpose: Knowledge Transfer

Added Value: Lectures will give you an in-depth understanding of the state of scientific knowledge about the respective topic, for example about the neuroscience of learning, motivation, change or stress. You will be able to answer frequently asked questions about scientific evidence relevant to the identification of viable concepts for future directions of leadership, corporate health as well as organisational and human resource development.

Duration: 12 x 45 min

Proof of performance: written exam

Format: online lecture via Zoom. Lecture recordings and  materials for futher study are provided  on your elopage learning platform

Workload: approximately 20 hours including course attendance and one hour of follow-up work for each lecture. 

 

Lectures:  

  • Fundamental Applied Neuroscience for Leadership, People and Organisation Development (start: winter term 2018/19).
  • Fundamental Applied Systems Theory for Leadership, People and Organisation Development (start: summer term 2019).
  • The Humanities and the Empirical Sciences: Complementrary Methodologies and Perspectives for Stimulating Organisational Development (start: summer term 2019)..
  • Future Studies: A Transdisciplinary Introduction (start: summer term 2019).

 

SCIENCE2PRACTICE SEMINARS

Purpose: You will gain the ability to approach a practical question scientifically, to ask relevant questions, formulate hypotheses and test them against the current state of research on the basis of primary sources from peer reviewed journals. 

Admission:

Added value: Science2Practice Seminars will equip you with a thorough scientific literacy in the respective field. You will learn how to find relevant studies and how to transfer their results into practically useful models. Seminars will be especially useful for you if you wish to explore into biological mechanisms of action underlying specific approaches such as systemic coaching, specific interventions like mindfulness practice or if you want to get cutting-edge knowledge about what it takes to develop an innovative and agile corporate culture.

Duration: 12 x 90 min

Proof of performance: In the course of the seminar, you will prepare a presentation about a topic of your interest and discuss your scientific approach with the rest of us. Based on this presentation you will write a paper of approximately 15 pages, containing a short review of the relevant literature and a concept for a practical application based on the state of research presented in your review.

Format: Online seminar via Zoom. Seminar recordings and  materials for futher reading are provided  on your elopage learning platform

Workload: approximately 40 hours including course attendance and one hour of follow-up work for each lecture plus 1-2 weeks for writing your paper (mainly depending on your experience in scientific writing).

RESEARCH SEMINARS

Purpose: Acquiring the ability to conduct relevant research into a topic of practical interest. This involves the ability to evaluate research studies, to formulare appropriate hypotheses, to design and conduct a small empirical study, to apply the appropriate statistical procedures and to discuss your results in the context of previous research.

Added Value: Research Seminars will take you one step further: form evaluationg and applying science towards doing the empirical research you need for your business yourself. For example, you could study associations between the scores on a psychometric questionnaire with actual performance - for instance the emotional intelligence scores of managers with employee satisfaction in a staff Survey and derive a leadership training programme on this basis.

Duration: 12 x 90 min

Proof of performance: In the course of the research seminar, you will prepare a presentation about a topic of your interest and discuss your scientific approach with the rest of us. You will receive personal tuition helping you with your research design, the selection of relevant measures (e.g. validated psychometric questionnaires) and the required statistical procedures. You will present your your empirical study and a discussion of your results in the context of previous research in a paper of approximately 20 pages, including illustrations, tables and references.

Format: online seminar via Zoom. Seminar recordings and  materials for futher learning are provided  on your elopage learning platform

Workload: approximately 40 hours including course attendance and one hour of follow-up work for each lecture plus 2-4 weeks for doing your research and writing your research paper, largely depending on your experience in scientific writing.
