Thursday Workshop: Basics of Agile (Only in Dutch)

Onderzoekers managen vaak vele projecten. Projectmanagement hebben de meesten echter nooit geleerd terwijl hier inmiddels veel kennis over is en veel gebruiksvriendelijke tools voor bestaan. In het bedrijfsleven wordt hiervoor vaak gebruik gemaakt van de Scrum- en Agile-methodieken. Ontstaan in de softwareontwikkeling om met multidisciplinaire teams samen te werken, van elkaar te kunnen leren en snel te kunnen schakelen bij ontwikkelingen, worden ze inmiddels breed toegepast. Het wordt gekenmerkt door een flexibele houding en een kneedbare manier van denken.

Het gebruik van scrum boards, meetings om feedback te geven, en het werken in multidisciplinaire teams zijn allemaal sleutelelementen in deze manier van teamwork. Tijdens deze workshop zullen we de basis leren van Agile en Scrum en op een interactieve manier zelf aan de slag gaan. We zullen de verschillende fasen in onze eigen onderzoekprojecten in kaart brengen met behulp van scrumboards en leren hoe we die kunnen gebruiken om alle spelers in onze multidisciplinaire teams op een lijn te houden of te krijgen. Leyla Sanati en Karen Setz zijn beiden werkzaam in het Sophia als Adviseur Project- en Procesoptimalisatie, onder andere in de capaciteitsplanning. In hun teams maken ze al jaren gebruik van de technieken van Scrum en de mindset van Agile. Zij zullen ons in deze workshop leren hoe je de samenwerking in een klinische studie, een multidisciplinaire paper, of een gehele promotie beter kan organiseren.

Friday Workshop: Team Learning (English)

Stephanie Meeuwissen (AIOS internal medicine) gives a workshop on how working together can help you achieve your goals. She obtained her PhD in 2021 with a thesis entitled “Team learning at work: Getting the best from interdisciplinary teaching teams and leaders”. This research investigated how interdisciplinary teacher teams, comprising teachers from a variety of backgrounds (e.g. clinical, basic and social sciences), share, explain, and exchange knowledge between colleagues when working on integrated health professions education. The research studied teams responsible for integrated education through the lens of team learning. Team learning is about the interaction taking place in a team, and describes the behaviours team members exhibit in their efforts to understand and integrate each other’s knowledge and experiences. The study identified three team approaches with varying levels of team learning; the teams that demonstrated high levels of team learning produced the best educational quality as perceived by students. Her work also led to the discovery of various levels of influence for team learning (on the individual, team and organisational level).

Lastly, to support the development of a leader identity striving towards inclusiveness and engagement of a diversity of people, she designed a faculty development programme. In this interactive and evidence-based workshop dr. Meeuwissen will draw largely on lessons learned in her PhD research and explain how to implement them in practice.
