[BEAM] Voice and Body (June 14-15, 2022)

Written by

There are free slots at this workshop organised by research training group “BEAM (RTG 2670): Self-Organization of Soft Matter via Multiple Noncovalent Interactions”.

Integral to voice and body training is the central idea that physical and vocal dynamics are connected to the speaker’s motivation and to the importance of the information being communicated. The trainer has a professional theatre background, which is a unique benefit for the participants to help identify the verbal challenges of each speaker, giving attention to breath, articulation, intonation, volume, modulation and tempo.

Contents

The Training is given to improve non-verbal aspects such as gesture, positioning, distance, eye contact and relationship with media. The trainer input will provide the opportunity to gain new insights in effective communication and learn how to present yourself more effectively and to make the best impression and strongest impact. Participants monitor their improvement and implement feedback through active role-play exercises in which they present themselves.

[BEAM] Workshop: How to get up after falling down (July 7, 2022)

Written by

There are free slots at this workshop organised by research training group “BEAM (RTG 2670): Self-Organization of Soft Matter via Multiple Noncovalent Interactions”.

What do we do when things go wrong? How do we respond when we fail or when we have bad luck? Did you know that even BEAM failed the first time? What if … every experience of failure became an opportunity to learn and grow?

Contents

In this workshop, we discuss the many ways in which things can go wrong and we clarify what failure means to each of us, individually. Then we reflect on how we can respond to failure and use it to get better. In the end, it is all about getting up once more than falling down. This workshop is a bit different, maybe the format is unusual for you, and you decide how much you want to share. For an impression of how Rebecca Waldecker works, you can listen here (in German).

“Don’t fear failure. — Not failure, but low aim, is the crime. In great attempts it is glorious even to fail.” ― Bruce Lee

DFG approves second funding period of International Research Training Group “TreeDi”

Written by

The Senate of the German Research Foundation (DFG) has approved the second funding period for the International Research Training Group “TreeDi – 林地 – Tree Diversity Interactions: The role of tree-tree interactions in local neighbourhoods in Chinese subtropical forests (GRK 2324)”.

The RTG focuses on the question of how trees interact and cooperate with each other within a forest, for example by exchanging nutrients via roots and fungal partners. The PhD projects are dedicated to the underlying processes and mechanisms of this cooperation.

The International Research Training Group “TreeDi – 林地 – Tree Diversity Interactions” is jointly operated by the MLU and the University of Chinese Academy of Sciences (UCAS). Hosting institution is the German Centre for Integrative Biodiversity Research (iDiv) Halle-Jena-Leipzig.

[BEAM] Culture at work (May 12, 2022)

Written by

There are free slots at this workshop organised by research training group “BEAM (RTG 2670): Self-Organization of Soft Matter via Multiple Noncovalent Interactions”.

As a scientist, we often work in a cross-cultural setting. Our research groups are international, we collaborate around the globe, and most of us will spend part, -or even all- of our career abroad. We can and should feel privileged to work in such a diverse and intercultural work environment. But these cultural and -of course- also individual differences can lead to all manners of misunderstandings. These misunderstandings can lead to a broad variety of undesired consequences, such as failed collaborations, frustrations, feelings of hurt, anxiety and anger, culture shock and missed opportunities for knowledge transfer.

Cultural awareness is the first step in sidestepping these undesired consequences. During this course you will improve your cross-cultural understanding, so you can tap into the full potential of your intercultural teams.

[BEAM] Women in Science – Talk and Power – Who Gets Heard and Why (31.01.2022 (online) + 07.03.2022)

Written by

There are free slots at this workshop organised by research training group “BEAM (RTG 2670): Self-Organization of Soft Matter via Multiple Noncovalent Interactions”.

This workshop will give you the opportunity to examine the distinctions between communication styles at work – support-oriented (horizontal) versus status-oriented (vertical); these communication styles can determine success or failure within a largely male-dominated environment. Each style has its strengths and weaknesses; a solid awareness of both is the way to create progress. We will consider examples from your working environment demonstrating those communication strategies and behaviours that can drive a career up or down.
