To kick off the advocacy work for 2020, HYVÄT organized an introductory seminar for the newly elected PhD representatives at thesteering groups od Doctoral Programmes, Schools and a few other boards of the university.
You can find the full programme of the seminar in the skeleton presentation: Representative seminar 2020
The seminar was started by introducing the representatives to HYVÄT and by asking their expectations for the following two year period. Here are results:
Next, we had Jenna Sorjonen from the Student Union HYY explaining the “legal” part of working witht the university administration: HYVÄT 15.1.2020 PhD Representatives
In the following panel discussion, there were four previous representatives talking about their experiences in the task:
- Julia von Boguslawski (Steering group of doctoral education, HYMY)
- Elina Pietilä (Doctoral School steering group, DSHealth)
- Mridul Johari (Doctoral Programme steering group, ILS/DSHealth)
- Krista Longi (Doctoral Programme steering group, DOCS/DONASCI)
Unfortunately we did not record the conversation, but to summarize, the take-home message was that the representatives should seek to communicate with each other and with the people they represent as mych as possible – both in formal meetings and in informal corridoor discussions.
The panel discussion was followed by the newly elected representative in the Steering Group of Doctoral Education, Joni Ollonen stating his goals for the election period: Joni_Ollonen_Goals_for_this_2-year_period
And finally, the representatives were grouped by their Doctoral School in order to discuss their possible common goals and ways of communication.
