About the course

UV9040D is organized by the Faculty research groups LIDA, SISCO and TEPEC and the Faculty of Educational Sciences.

The intention of the research seminar is to provide for closer follow-up of the research fellows during their first two years, as well as to facilitate academic discussions and collaboration.

Learning outcome

Participation in the research seminar is a mandatory part of the research training, and is to take place during the first two years of the admission period.

Mandatory parts of the research seminar are:

  1. Candidates must attend at least seven sessions of the research seminar.
  2. During the first semester, the candidates' project plan is to be presented and discussed.
  3. During the seminar, candidates must also have prepared responses to at least one project plan from a fellow candidate.
  4. The candidate must also complete his or her mid-term assessment.

The mid-term assessment must be completed before the candidates receive the credits for the research workshops /seminar. The mid-term assessment can be conducted as an integrated part of the seminar sessions, but can also be conducted outside the scope of this. The mid-term review is organized in collaboration with the research education coordinator in accordance with current practice. The supervisor is to meet when the candidate presents his/her project plan/ independent research description.

Beyond this, it may also be appropriate to include the discussion of conference presentations /posters, relevant academic topics, or more generic topics.
