|Kurzbeschreibung||This colloquium offers an opportunity for students to discuss their ongoing research and scientific ideas in the behavioral sciences, both at the micro- and macro-levels of cognitive, behavioral and social science. It also offers an opportunity for students from other disciplines to discuss their research ideas in relation to behavioral science. The colloquium also features invited research talks.|
|Lernziel||Students know and can apply autonomously up-to-date investigation methods and techniques in the behavioral sciences. They achieve the ability to develop their own ideas in the field and to communicate their ideas in oral presentations and in written papers. The credits will be obtained by a written report of approximately 10 pages.|
|Inhalt||This colloquium offers an opportunity for students to discuss their ongoing research and scientific ideas in the behavioral sciences, both at the micro- and macro-levels of cognitive, behavioral and social science. It also offers an opportunity for students from other disciplines to discuss their ideas in so far as they have some relation to behavioral science. The possible research areas are wide and may include theoretical as well as empirical approaches in Social Psychology and Research on Higher Education, Sociology, Modeling and Simulation in Sociology, Decision Theory and Behavioral Game Theory, Economics, Research on Learning and Instruction, Cognitive Psychology and Cognitive Science. Ideally the students (from Bachelor, Master, Ph.D. and Post-Doc programs) have started to start work on their thesis or on any other term paper. |
Course credit can be obtained either based on a talk in the colloquium plus a written essay, or by writing an essay about a topic related to one of the other talks in the course. Students interested in giving a talk should contact the course organizers (Schinazi, Hoelscher) before the first session of the semester. Priority will be given to advanced / doctoral students for oral presentations. The course credits will be obtained by a written report of approximately 10 pages. The colloquium also serves as a venue for invited talks by researchers from other universities and institutions related to behavioral and social sciences.

Findet dieses Semester nicht statt.
|1 KP||1K||R. Schubert|
|Kurzbeschreibung||This PhD Colloquium gives PhD students the opportunity to present and discuss their research with other PhD students and researchers working on climate change related topics in several disciplines. Contributions from natural sciences, economics, law, and social sciences are welcome. Changes in perspective and the breadth of the presentations and discussions create a chance of gaining new insights.|
|Lernziel||The objective of this Colloquium is to provide PhD students an opportunity to discuss their climate change related research with researchers from different disciplines. PhD students should widen the horizon of their own research, learn how their research is embedded in the broader climate change debate and gain new insights and stimuli for interdisciplinary research. Eventually they can extend their network across several institutes of ETH and UZH.|
|Inhalt||Participants are expected to |
- submit a short abstract (ca. half a page) introducing their own research and research progress
- prepare previously circulated course material.
|Skript||More information, including dates, venues, papers & presentations will be available at|
|Voraussetzungen / Besonderes||Registration via email is necessary until February 1, 2015 with both email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org, indicating your university affiliation and field of research. The course is limited to 10 PhD students of ETH and 10 PhD students of UZH.|
