  1. Future of Work: how is the work landscape likely to change regarding skills and workplace set-up, what to expect from technology and how can you prepare (no matter if you remain in academia or go into industry)
  2. Branding: how can you (inside and outside academia) brand yourself with the help of „Design Thinking Tools“
  3. Virtual work: how to manage yourself, have better teamwork and more efficient presentations when you are not meeting face to faceEach workshop will have a brief pre-survey to finalize the content of the workshop so that participants’ needs can be catered for.

IMPRS and the IRTG are co-hosting three brief online workshops. Each workshop will have a brief pre-survey to finalize the content of the workshop so that participants’ needs can be catered for.

Future of Work

This course, comprised of online group workshops and brief self-study, aims to equip you with skills for your future work life
In our evening online sessions you can expect short lecture sequences followed by break out sessions and moments of reflection around the following topics

  • Insights on how the work environment is due to change (“Future of Work”) based on technology and innovation
  • What are „new work“ methods: how are you potentially using already these methods
  • Skills to be adaptable and flexible for an ongoing change in the work place

July 19, 2021 – 9am – 1 pm

Knowing yourself, your skills and what you can offer in the work environment is an essential step towards navigating your career. In our half-day workshop we spend time on revisiting your skills and then, with the help of the branding canvas (a „Design Thinking tool“), you will put it on paper. Through mini-presentations with your peers and iteration, this tool will be a living and breathing document you can take away after the workshop (as a hardware tool or digital format) and continue to work with it.
By the end of this workshop you will have a clearer understanding of your brand and you will have practiced to present yourself.
