From September 19-23, 2022, after two years of pandemic-caused cancellations, we were finally able to host our PhD Course again! We're very grateful that we got to meet so many enthusiastic PhD candidates, learn about their PhD projects, and could support them with lectures, individual supervision, and team building activities.
The aim of the course is to provide PhD students with more in-depth knowledge on designing, conducting and evaluating interventions in sport and exercise psychology. Further, students will gain practical experience on how to prepare manuscripts for publication, will learn about what editors are looking for in the manuscript submission process, and discuss open science as well as career perspectives. Students will also have the opportunity to network with international students and experts in the field. Finally, they will be given the chance to present and discuss their own work with the experts. Overall, the course will enable communication, networking and cooperation among students and experts.
