07.09.2021: âStrategies for Effective Writingâ (time: 9.00 - 16.30)
Trainer: Mirela HusiÄ
Content: As a PhD student, you are repeatedly asked to present your research results in written form and ensure that you get from your ideas and the research papers to own convincing texts. Mastering this text work can be a great challenge and thus lead to unproductive work phases. Therefore, this workshop focuses on professional writing strategies which can contribute to a productive writing process when used purposefully.
In this workshop you will...
1. reflect on your previous writing strategies,
2. figure out for which purposes your previous writing strategies are more and for which they are less suitable,
3. try out a number of new writing strategies in order to identify...
4. those strategies that will help you the most in your academic writing.
The goal of the workshop is that you will have a larger repertoire of appropriate writing strategies and thus be able to manage the work process more efficiently.

Lecturer: Dr. Adrian Pachzelt BIOfid (https://www.biofid.de/en/)
Target group: PhD students, Professors, Scientific staff
Content: The specialised Information Service for Biodiversity Research (BIOfid) provides current and historic literature concerning biodiversity in contemporary format for supra-regional Use and availability. Text mining procedures enable the automatic evaluation and semantic processing of texts. Data sets on the taxonomy and biogeography of organisms, which are on the one hand difficult to access in historical works and on the other hand are increasingly available in digital documents, can thus be mobilized and processed for further research questions. In this workshop, participants will receive a theoretical and practical introduction to Natural Language Processing (NLP) - and text mining techniques as well as to the use of the BIOfid-Portal
