DynAge has developed a strategy for Research-Oriented Teaching for graduate students of different disciplines. The pilot project “DynAge Forschungswerkstatt” was launched at the beginning of the winter term 2013/2014. A select group of master students has since been systematically involved in the work of three DynAge-funded project groups:
- Subjective cognitive impairments: A valid predictor for cognitive disorders? (Lecturer: Prof. Dr. Michael Niedeggen, Department of Education and Psychology)
- Age-related interacting aspects of cancer care: Molecular profiles, personal goals, treatment adherence and social network structures (Lecturer: Dr. Linda Parschau, Department of Education and Psychology)
- The role of actor interests for guideline development: Bridging guideline science with organization and management theory (Lecturer: Dr. Lauri Wessel, School of Business & Economics)
Students worked with DynAge researchers on select subaims of DynAge projects. During the winter term 2013/2014 students actively contributed to project work, developed their own research questions, empirically investigated it, and presented their findings as posters during a poster session at the 2nd Annual DynAge Workshop on July 3rd 2014.
Students were continually supervised by project PIs and collaborating researchers, invited to participate in DynAge Special Interest Workshops and the Annual Dynage Workshop. Participating students received course credits for their work.
The "DynAge-Forschungswerkstatt" was continued during winter term 2014/2015, summer term 2015, winter term 2015/2016 and summer term 2016. Findings were presented by the students as posters during poster sessions at the DynAge Workshop 2015 and 2016.
Open lecture series: "... dass es ein Ende mit mir haben muss. Vom guten Leben angesichts des Todes".
Prof. Dr. Stefan Gosepath and Prof. Dr. Matthias Remenyi organized in the summer term 2014 a weekly open lecture series at the Freie Universität Berlin. Please, find the flyer of the open lecture series here.
