Currently, Peer to Peer Group Coaching takes place online through Teams.
The first meeting will be chaired by the PhD candidate Advisor. In the following meetings, you will work with a rotating chairman. There will be four follow-up meetings, scheduled by the group itself. The advised frequency of the meetings is once every two months. The participants keep track of attendance in an Excel-sheet which is forwarded to the PhD candidate advisor after every meeting. If you are unable to attend, you notify the other group members and the PhD Candidate Advisor by e-mail.
A new group starts when 6-8 participants have applied. The date for the first meeting is scheduled by the PhD candidate advisor, through an online tool.
PhD candidates who would like to get support from peers, reflect, discuss issues without hierarchical differences and get insight and find possible solutions to everyday problems
In total 14,5 hours: 10,5 hours (1x2,5 plus 4x2) attendance plus 4 hours preparing for meetings; which is comparable to 0,5 ECTS.
During the meetings (duration 2 hours, first meeting 2,5 hour) a maximum of two issues can be addressed. Examples of issues that can be addressed are: problems with communication with supervisors, planning of your project, competition with colleagues, time management, difficulties with writing or presenting etc.
