Inclusion during a Doctorate? Chances, Risks, and Side Effects when Doing a Doctorate with a Disability” (Susanne Groth, Köln), May 16, 2019, 18:15-19:45, , VG 1.103

How do PhD students with disabilities experience everyday life at a university? What kind of challenges are they faced with? Whom do they when inform about their disabilities? What kind of reactions show supervisors on that? What solutions do they have when dealing with potential problems? And are disabilities or health problems actually taken into account in PhD regulations
In her lecture Susanne Groth will be focusing on experience and knowledge from the project “PROMI – Promotion inklusive”.

The lecture will be in German, but discussion in English is welcome, too.
