Join the monthly meeting of the AVETH politics team on 15th March 2018 from 7.00 pm to 8.30 pm at SOL B4 ETH Zurich Campus Zentrum! Everybody is welcome to join the discussion.
The planned agenda is the following:
1.Welcome remarks and introduction round [10’]
2.News from the AVETH board [10’]
3.Preliminary results of AVETH survey on supervision of doctoral students [45’]
4. AVETH’s position on the new ETHZ “workshop concept” [15’]
Point 3: AVETH survey on supervision of doctoral students conducted between September 2017 and November 2017 was successful with a response rate of 40%. We will discuss the preliminary results of the survey and plans for further analysis in this meeting.
Point 4: ETH Zürich would like to have a common platform to track and optimize all workshops within ETH. They performed a “field study” in the different workshops over the last 2 years and came up with a few proposals how to avoid redundancy and improve efficiency. We will make a summary of the different proposals, discuss shortly how this affects the non-faculty scientific staff and start discussing ideas for a statement that AVETH is going to issue on that topic.
If you would like to discuss a specific topic, just contact us (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we will adapt the agenda. As usual, there will be some drinks and snacks 🙂
