Workshop information

Workshop 1: The dilemma game 

With Chris Hartgerink

In this workshop you will learn practical ways to practice your ethics frequently. Frequent but short sessions of ethical skills training are helpful to navigate issues confidently when they arise, reducing stress and increasing your decision making capacity. Join this workshop if you would like to practice your ethics!


Workshop 2: The power of color

With Grietje Jongsma

Ready to take up the self- image evaluation challenge?

During this workshop we consider the concept of self-image. Are you self- image aware? Does your understanding of your self-image match who you genuinely are?

Skills, experience, qualities and talents are all important for career growth and job prospects – so is your image.

In this workshop we’ll discover:

  • Connections between colour, confidence and courage 
  • How to demonstrate your strengths through self-image 
  • 5 ways to share the best version of yourself 
  • How to make a great impression (at a job interview/date?) 
  • Skills to increase your impact through authenticity 

Workshop 3: What is wisdom? Scientific integrity the Socratic way

With Claartje van Sijl

In ancient Greece, the philosopher Socrates thoroughly questions opinions of his fellow citizens. Today his approach still inspires us to step out of the box and think deeper. This workshop does not provide ultimate answers about dilemmas of scientific integrity, but stimulates you to think. It invites you to explore new perspectives and develop your personal leadership in cases from your own experiences related to integrity issues in science.

Prepare for this workshop by sending in one or two brief case descriptions or propositions regarding integrity in science.
