JointForces – With Joint Forces to Success

Get support for your project from a community of innovators and entrepreneurs of TU and WU. Present either your start-up or your first idea in a relaxed setting and without pressure. At Joint Forces you have the opportunity to attract the attention of interested co-founders, employees and mentors. The feedback from the community can provide the decisive impulse for the next step.

The event in 3 acts

3 START-UPS – Already founded start-ups, which have provided their proof-of-concept, are pitching and looking for employees, valuable contacts or investors.

3 PROJECTS – Without guidelines or specifications, future founders are presenting their project ideas to get some feedback and perhaps even get to know future co-founders.

3 SHOUT-OUTS – Everyone has the chance to make a brief request, an event announcement or whatever. No feedback, no questions – who wants to know more, has to ask for details during the networking afterwards.

Design Thinking and Visual Thinking for Research @ Kontaktraum
Oct 29 @ 9:00 am – 5:00 pm

Workshop description

This workshop is inspired by the course “Research as design” at Stanford University. According to our research (Cravens et al., 2014; Ulibarri et. al, 2014), productive, confident and motivated researchers need three things: analytical skills, creative confidence and emotional well-being. This is exactly what this workshop is about.

The goal of this workshop is to recognize the creative, playful mindset that underlies successful innovation in scholarship and explore how design thinking can improve the research process to make us more innovative scholars or scientists. And with this, to increase the ability of researchers to create quality research and a systematic application of creativity in their own research development. Especially because emerging scholars and interdisciplinary researchers need tools, techniques, support, and inspiration to approach their research in an innovative and playful spirit of design.

Participants will explore a variety of design skills and mindsets, but focus especially on how being mindful of your own research process, work styles, emotional state, and sometimes-hidden assumptions can help you get “unstuck” when facing research bumps in the road. The instructor seeks to help participants to explore potential solutions to problems in their research efforts.

 

Learning outcomes:

During this workshop, participants will gain…

Creative confidence

…with tools, techniques and inspiration for an innovative mindset

…to improve their research process

…to make themselves more innovative scholars

…to “unstuck” in times of research blocks

 

Problem-solving abilities

…reflecting, iterating and tolerating ambiguity

…refining questions, processes, and methods, viewing setbacks as opportunities for further learning

…highlighting the creative process of scholarly research

…combining analytical skills and creative intelligence

 

Emotional well-being

…being proactive about emotional needs (as it leads to greater productivity)

…creating a social-support network (academic, non-academic)

…creative a supportive, non-judgmental environment

…work in tandems and experience peer-coaching

 

Participants will have the opportunity to apply design thinking tools and methods to their own research projects, creating prototypes of their research papers, understanding the importance of an iterative process and seeking feedback to further develop their research.
