Share your Doctoral Experience(s) “Doctorate: Project-Process-Product”
This BRS colloquium titled Test your doctoral idea(s) and share your doctoral experience(s) “Doctorate: project‐process‐product” invites doctoral candidates, Post‐Docs, teaching staff and professors of the Bauhaus‐Universität Weimar to share their doctoral experience.

How will “the open space” colloquium work?
The open space method adopted in this colloquium provides a great opportunity for the participants to interact and communicate in a very comfortable atmosphere. We will start with a speed dating so that the participants get to know each other. Subsequently, participants are welcome to suggest the topic that they want to share and discuss with the other participants. The topics will be sorted under the colloquium’s themes: Project‐Process‐Product, thus forming three parallel discussion modules. The three modules will be organized to discuss the suggested topics for 90 minutes. Each module will have a moderator to organize the session who will also present the outcome of the module in the closing session. The platform,  in the closing session, will be open for participants to suggest ideas to the BRS representatives for future activities and developments.

Goals and Outcomes of the colloquium
The Colloquium aims to provide doctoral candidates lessons learned to make their doctoral experience more beneficial. Participants also have the opportunity to get to know other candidates from different disciplines. Sharing experiences may also continue after the colloquium through working groups which can be supported by Bauhaus Research School (BRS) through workshops and other future activities. Topics for the next colloquium and other ideas to help doctoral students to organize themselves at the Bauhaus‐Universität Weimar are expected as outcomes as well.

Presentation of the method/support of the modules: Doctoral Representatives, International Ph.D. Network and Members of the BRS.  

We cordially invite all doctoral candidates and junior researchers to join us at the 10th Interdisciplinary Colloquium.

Crossing disciplinary boundaries is part of the Bauhaus tradition of research and work at the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar. The 8th Interdisciplinary Colloquium took up this topic from the last colloquium again, in a way that overcomes the boundaries between teaching, research or practice, but also between the disciplines.

Retrospective and Outlook

Colloquium Winter 2015 (Bauhaus-Universität Weimar, Photo: Johannes C. Elze)

Our next Interdisciplinary Doctoral Colloquium will take place on 5 July 2016.

Crossing disciplinary boundaries is part of the Bauhaus tradition of research and work at the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar. Furthermore, interdisciplinarity almost seems to be a prerequisite for contemporary research. At the same time, there is a relevance claim for practice in many scientific fields. On 1 December 2015, our 7th Interdisciplinary Doctoral Colloquium »Crossing boundaries – Interdisciplinarity | Research & Practice« dealt with these topics and gave room to discuss the challenges involved and opportunities young scientific and artistic researchers face.

6th Interdisciplinary Doctoral Colloquium | Retrospective 30.6.2015

Colloquium Summer 2015 (Bauhaus-Universität Weimar, Photo: Johannes C. Elze)

The Bauhaus Research School cordially invited all doctoral candidates and junior researchers to take part in the 6th Interdisciplinary Doctoral Colloquium focusing on the subject of doctoral writing.

Two panels running side-by-side provided an intensive and concentrated platform on the different phases of writing during the doctoral phase. Both panels focused on different ways of publications and writing strategies. The panels (both in English and German) were led by specific keynote speakers who shared their experience within the group, guiding and inspiring with tips, advice and ideas (Colloquium Flyer, PDF)

Within the 45 seconds of the science speed dating the participants learned more about the research topics of each participant and writing habits. A great opportunity to find like-minded people.

Keynote Speakers
Dr. Jutta Wergen (Coachingzonen)
Prof. Dr. Timon Rabczuk (Bauhaus-Universität Weimar)
Dr. Bettina Preiß (Publisher, VDG Verlag Weimar)

5th Interdisciplinary Colloquium - Retrospective

(Foto: Meeta Wolff)

On December 09th, 2014 doctoral candidates and junior researchers had the opportunity to participate in the fifth interdisciplinary colloquium on the topic of „Generalisation and Uncertainty“ bringing the different epistemologies in dialog together. 

Questions like: Which statements are allowed based on the gained results? How much potential for generalisation lies in the research outcomes, how uncertain or socially constructed are they? were addressed.

3 young researchers used their chance to present their work and presented their open questions at the colloquium. Each candidate had a maximum of 15 minutes for their presentation, which was followed by a moderated discussion to find new approaches to solve research-related problems together.

Within 60 seconds of the science speed dating our participants learned all about the research topics of each participant. It was a great opportunity to find like-minded people.
