ClimBEco annual meetings

The annual summer and winter meetings are highlights in the research school’s interdisciplinary agenda. We gather twice per year to network, listen to inspiring guests, and engage in discussions and workshops. The focus of the summer meetings is on an interdisciplinary subject matter that alternates, while the winter meetings focus primarily on PhD student presentations. Supervisors are welcome to join!

ClimBEco winter meeting 2021:
"Multidisciplinary learning environments - seizing their opportunities and avoiding their pitfalls"

Scholars of environmental science are increasingly urged to collaborate across disciplines in order to tackle the complex challenges society is facing. But this collaboration isn't easy and it doesn't always pan out even when scholars try. At this winter meeting we will take the opportunity to consider what multidisciplinary cooperation actually means, and how we as scientists can take advantage of multidisciplinary learning environments while avoiding the pitfalls that come with the territory.

Why this theme: Bringing the learning environment into focus can help us to be better communicators, especially when in multi- and interdisciplinary academic settings. It can equally support us as listeners and learners, in recognizing implicit communication tools that are perhaps less used in our own fields of study but prevalent in others.

What participants get: Theoretical discussions related to the learning environment in higher education. Implementing practical tools for oral presentations to make them more comprehensible to those outside of your own field.

Date: Wednesday - Thursday January 20–21, 2021
This annual meeting will take place digitally between 8:30-16:15 day 1 and 8:30-12:00 day 2. A more detailed programme will be presented here and communicated to ClimBEco PhDs in December.
