Science in society, 6hp
The purpose of the course is to broaden and deepen the doctoral candidate's critical understanding of the possibilities and limitations of science in society, and of how these possibilities and limitations are affected by the various assumptions embodied in scientific research traditions. The course also aims to provide a greater insight into the ethical demands and problems which research faces in contemporary society.

Research Ethics and Responsible Conduct in Research, 4hp  (The application is now closed)
For more than ten years now, it has been illegal in Sweden to conduct various types of research without previous approval from a regional ethical review board. This legislation, once more, put a spotlight on research ethics more generally and widely publicized cases of unethical research and scientific misconduct more specifically. In this course, we will cover the relationship between research and ethics in a wider sense, as well as the legal regulation of research ethics, including the rather complicated application process with the regional ethical review board. Course topics range from such concerns as ethics in theory and practice to secure management of research data and what an informed consent form must contain.

Develop your Swedish
The Centre for Teaching and Learning offers a possibility for PhD students and teachers who don’t have Swedish as their first language to further develop their knowledge of Swedish to be able to speak to colleagues about work related matters and to take active part in staff meetings. 

This is not a course; there will be no credits and no assessment.  It is rather a seminar series and all participants are expected to contribute by suggesting themes to discuss in Swedish. The seminars will be led by Patricia Staaf, director of Center for Teaching and Learning as well as adjunct in Swedish as a second language.

We will meet ten times this term, 15.00 – 17.00 on the following dates:
October: 5/10, 12/10, 22/10, 29/10
November: 5/11, 12/11, 16/11, 23/11
December: 3/12, 7/12, 14/12

Sign up by sending an e-mail to Patricia Staaf before October 1. We need to know your name, faculty and your expectations.
