Outline of the events:

Plenary and panel discussion

Subtitle: “Concepts and conversation”

Description: A plenary session involving a presentation by Martin Ringer and a panel discussion involving András Gelei and Judit Gáspár. The presentation will outline key concepts relating to the way in which the complex constellation of conscious and unconscious intrapsychic dynamics in researchers and their supervisors influence vital choices throughout the lifetime of a research project. The panel session will enable the audience to engage in a thought provoking conversation to progress these ideas, introduce new ideas and to think together about the practical consequences of the ideas presented.


Workshop 1
Subtitle: “Experiential exploration and experimentation”

Description: This workshop will engage participants in a series of experiential explorations that make visible some of the ways in which the inner world of the researcher manifests itself in the work. The workshop will enable participants to explore the interface between their personal motivations, aspirations and fears, and their work. The last part of the workshop will involve an integration group.


Workshop 2
Subtitle: “Case studies and practical consequences”

Description: Participants will interact in case studies and simulations that evoke the same dynamics that occur in practice during the conduct of, supervision of and evaluation of research. Learning will be drawn from these practical enactments and some ideas will be developed on how to apply this learning in the everyday life of the researcher and research supervisor. The last session of the day will be an integration/application group that draws together experiences from the plenary and the two workshops.
