Registration for DSHealth transferable skills courses

This information regarding registration for transferable skills courses concerns all doctoral candidates in DSHealth.

Doctoral candidates in DSHealth should register to the transferrable skills courses organized by DSHealth through WebOodi (unless otherwise stated).

Doctoral candidates or undergraduates coming from outside the University of Helsinki (e.g. from Universities within the NorDoc network) as well as other research staff may apply to the transferrable skills courses organized by DSHealth using an e-form.

When do I register?

You can register during the registration period. It is possible that courses with a small number of registrations will be opened again for registration.

How do I cancel my registration?

You can cancel your registration in WebOodi during the registration period. After this period and if you have been accepted to the course you must email DSHealth ASAP to cancel your registration: dshealth-office@helsinki.fi

How are students selected for courses?

Student selection for courses usually takes place automatically based on the students’ registration order.  Selected students will always receive “Welcome to the course…” –letter.

For some courses, the course teacher selects the students on the basis of questions asked in connection with registration. In such cases, the teacher notifies the selected students of their admission to the course.

Reserve list /wait-list

If you were not admitted to a course but are on the reserve list you can check your status on WebOodi (status is marked as HYLÄTTY / REJECTED REGISTRATION). In this case you are on the wait-list. DSHealth will approach you only if free seats are available.  Free seats are always offered to candidates on the wait-list based on the registration order.

Keep the following in mind when registering for courses

  • DSHealth courses are mostly overbooked, and unfortunately with many doctoral candidates on the "wait-list"
  • Registrations are confirmed to selected candidates via email based on registration order (unless otherwise stated)
  • Cancel your registration if you are unable to participate in the course (to ensure that those interested in the course have a chance to take it).
    Why? An uncancelled course place means an empty seat in class and unnecessary queues for courses.

    MITÄ JA MITEN:
    Väitöskirjatutkimuksesta kirjoitetaan yleistajuinen, maksimissaan 1.5 sivun pituinen teksti, joka luetutetaan ensin väitöskirjatyöohjaajalla. Sen jälkeen juttu lähetetään Suomen Akatemian tiedottaja Terhi Loukiaiselle (terhi.loukiainen-at-aka.fi), jonka kanssa teksti työstetään julkaisukuntoon. Valmis juttu julkaistaan Suomen Akatemian Tietysti.fi-sivustolla ja linkitetään DSHealth-tutkijakoulun sivuille. Tämän jälkeen kirjoittajalle rekisteröidään 1 op:n kurssisuoritus kurssikoodilla 921160.

    MILLOIN:
    Kurssin voi suorittaa itse valittuna ajankohtana.

    MIKSI:
    Popularisointiopin ja opintopisteen lisäksi tietysti.fi-julkaiseminen on erinomainen keino saada näkyvyyttä omalle tutkimukselleen, sivustolla käy vuosittain n. 120 000 lukijaa, mm. opettajia ja lukiolaisia!

    Oletko kiinnostunut tieteen, asiantuntijuuden ja julkisuuden suhteesta sekä viestintätaitojesi kehittämisestä?

    Tiedeviestinnän opintokokonaisuuteen valitaan vuosittain 20 jatko-opiskelijaa. Haku järjestetään aina keväällä syksyllä alkavaan opetukseen. Opetuksessa käsitellään mm. tieteen ja asiantuntijuuden roolia yhteiskunnassa ja julkisuudessa, median toimintaperiaatteita, sosiaalisen median roolia ja käyttöä tiedeviestinnässä, tutkimuksen popularisointia sekä harjoitellaan käytännön viestintätaitoja yhteistyössä journalistien ja muiden viestinnän ammattilaisten kanssa. Opetukseen kuuluu kontaktiopetusta, työpajoja ja käytännön harjoittelua. Opiskelu on maksutonta.

    Opintokokonaisuuteen valitaan jatko-opiskelijoita kaikista tohtoriohjelmista ja tutkijakouluista eikä aiempaa osaamista vaadita. Opiskelijoiksi pyritään saamaan motivoituneita opiskelijoita monipuolisesti eri tiedekunnista. Tiedeviestinnän opintoja tarjotaan vuosittain viiden kurssin verran eli yhteensä 25 opintopisteen edestä.

    Mikäli suoritat tiedeviestinnän opintoja 10-15 opintopistettä, voit sisällyttää ne yleisten valmiustaitojen kokonaisuuteen. Mikäli haluat suorittaa tiedeviestinnästä tätä laajemman, oman 20-25 opintopisteen kokonaisuuden, tulee sinun varautua suorittamaan yleiset valmiustaitovaatimukset joillakin muilla kursseilla.

    Lisätietoja löydät tiedeviestinnän verkkosivuilta.

    Give feedback on courses organized by DSHealth!

    DSHealth aims to provide high quality, systematic, efficient (4-year net time) and supervised doctoral training to all enrolled doctoral candidates. When you have attended a course organized by DSHealth, please give us feedback on the course using the online feedback form. Your feedback is invaluable to us and it will be used for the further development of the DSHealth course curriculum.

    Decision of the DSHealth Board on August 22, 2016:

    If a doctoral candidate has 2 *no-shows* within 12 months in courses organized by DSHealth/doctoral programmes, (s)he is not entitled to DSHealth/doctoral programme travel grants in the next application round. Tracking of the *no-shows* will start on September 1, 2016.

     *no-show* = registered participants do not inform the organizers in time if they decide to skip the course/event they have signed up for

    Step 1: Agreement on scientific content and expenses

    Based on the course program and approval, the course organizer agrees with the doctoral programme officer on training goals and pedagogical methods to be employed.

    Based on the budget of the course, the course organizer agrees with the doctoral programme on the course expenses.

    • course materials, economy-class travel expenses, and speakers’ dinners/lunches can be covered
    • refreshments (coffee, snacks etc.) are covered only in specific cases
    • If a course is accepted to the course program of the doctoral programme, rents of lecture rooms within the UH are covered by the faculty
    • fees can be paid for lecturers from outside the University of Helsinki, to University of Helsinki employees if teaching is not in the unit in which they are employed, and e.g. for technicians participating in workshop tutoring (please refer to the University of Helsinki guidelines for fees in the Flamma https://flamma.helsinki.fi/en/group/henkilostoasiat/fees
    • If the budget provided by doctoral programme is not enough to cover all course expenses, additional sponsorship must be utilized and could be requested, e.g from departments, institutes, or other partners.

    Step 2: Course details

    Facilities

    The doctoral programme officer books the necessary facilities for the duration of the course and registers the course in OPTIME and OODI. The room rents are excluded from the course budget if teaching is done in the University of Helsinki facilities. Please, do not make your own lecture room bookings for the courses!

    Program

    The course organizer prepares the program. The doctoral programme will advertise the course to doctoral candidates in the doctoral programme(s) and the Doctoral School in Health Sciences (DSHealth). The course organizers are also encouraged to use their own targeted channels for further advertisement.

    Speakers/lecturers

    The course organizer invites and instructs speakers and lecturers. For travel arrangements, please contact CWT (university.fi@contactcwt.com; +358 (0)205 615 635) and/or dshealth-services@helsinki.fi should the doctoral program pay for the tickets directly. More information on travelling in Flamma: https://flamma.helsinki.fi/en/group/matkustaminen.

    Course page and Moodle area

    When the course is created in WebOodi, a course page is generated in https://courses.helsinki.fi/. On the course page you can add course materials such as course program, links etc. On the course page, you can also create a Moodle area (https://moodle.helsinki.fi/) for the course. Moodle can be used to distribute course material, organize discussions, collect students’ assignments and inform about grades.

    Course registration

    Doctoral candidates at the University of Helsinki are required to register to courses in WebOodi. Doctoral candidates and students from other universities as well as researchers and staff can register using a separate e-form or as agreed with the programme officer. Lecture and lab courses are aimed at the doctoral candidates of the UH. If there are seats available, other participants might be accepted.

    Credits

    • The course organizer and the doctoral programme agree on the number of credits before the start of the course. Course organizers should keep in mind that 1 ECTS equals 27 hours of work.
    • The course organizer collects the participant lists daily during all course meetings. The course organizer approves credits for doctoral candidates who have fulfilled all course requirements.
    • Grading should pass/fail, and the criteria should be informed in the beginning of the course.
    • Course organizer may send the credits to be registered using  Credit registration form (excel). Please fill in all information and send it to meilahti-register@helsinki.fi and the doctoral programme can provide paper certificates for participants outside the UH
    • Please note that the course results (grades or pass/fail) should be informed to students within one month after the course. The credits should be registered within one month after that.

    Step 3: Feedback and course report

    General feedback forms can be found on the course page of the course in question https://courses.helsinki.fi/

    A teacher is allowed to use his/her own feedback form as well.

    After the course, the organizer should deliver to the doctoral programme a short course report stating the number of students who passed the course and a summary of the feedback.
