The interplay of work, health & organisational success

Interdisciplinary and personal: Science meets practise
In an interdisciplinary approach we will look at a multitude of health impairments in work organisations and develop strategies to strengthen personal and organisational resources thereby including the whole (working) lifecycle.
The topics are complementary, though they will be located at different analytical levels (individual, management, organisation, society). Additionally, experts from practise (e.g. organisational health management) will be invited to participate in the summer school in order to foster the exchange of ideas about practically relevant topics and the dissemination of (first) results to practise.
Diverse and innovative presentation techniques and interactive elements will be used and tested: In addition to „classic“ presentations and keynotes we will apply Pecha Kucha sessions, Speed Mentoring, and Interactive Poster Sessions.

Everybody knows what a paper presentation or a keynote is, but…
What’s an interactive poster? There will be four posters in each group introduced by a facilitator. Each presenter will have 5 minutes for the poster presentation. After the presentation, the facilitator will open the discussion with the audience.
What’s Pecha Kucha? A presentation technique coming from the area of marketing and advertisment. Twenty slides are shown for twenty seconds each (6 minutes and 40 seconds in total). This format keeps presentations concise and fast-paced. Here you find more about Pecha Kucha.
