NEXT: 5. Activity report

CNS requirements determined by the Director for Doctoral Training.

May differ from KI’s general guidelines.

In each individual case, the Director for Doctoral Training shall determine which activity may be approved to fulfill the doctoral training obligations.

1. International conference presentation

Oral or poster presentation. Supply evidence of the activity conducted (e.g. course/congress attendance certificate/abstract).

2. Seminars, journal clubs

Seminar series within the department. Record of participation must be supplied. Accumulate a decent number of hours before you ask for accreditation.

3. Scientific lab visits

Visit to an academic or industrial institution for the purpose of interacting scientifically. This can NOT be accredited if the collaboration is part of the stated ISP project and personal development plan involving a co-supervisor.

4. Teaching

Teaching within personal research area for practical pedagogical training, including time for preparation.

You should conduct a teaching course in pedagogy for teachers before you embark on teaching at KI. Primarily teaching encompasses classroom-based activities. While lab-based supervision of project workers is a beneficial experience it is not accredited for teaching in this context. Accumulate a decent number of hours before you ask for accreditation.
