Relevant knowledge dissemination tasks for PhD students
OBJECTIVE AND DEFINITION
The guide concerns knowledge dissemination which is a mandatory element of the Danish PhD programme, cf. the PhD Order § 7. The knowledge dissemination requirement thus applies to all PhD students, whereas the teaching obligation of 600 hours only applies to PhD students who are employed by the university according to the AC agreement (at Faculty of Humanities, the teaching obligation is reduced from 840 to 600 hours).
PhD students who are enrolled at the Danish Universities must gain experience of teaching activities or other forms of knowledge dissemination which is related to the student's PhD project, cf. the PhD Order § 7. It means that knowledge dissemination activities should be related to the methodological, theoretical or empirical field of the PhD project.
Examples of relevant knowledge dissemination activities are:
Seminars and lecturing
Project supervision on Bachelor’s and Master’s level
Knowledge dissemination outside academia:
Presentations at practitioners’ conferences and meetings
Presentations and lectures to for example municipalities, regions, ministries, organizations, educational institutions and other partners
Participation in follow-ups with external partner, for example meetings and workshops
Communication with media stakeholders
Other academically relevant organisational task
Contribution to application for external funds
