Is it as easy as the title suggests? “Study with me” is a video or live stream format. There, people invite you to watch and study or work along while they do their own studying. Some streamers prefer to add some music. Others will do their work completely silent to allow you to listen to your own music instead. As Covid-19 is putting us under physical (social) distancing, I really miss the study and coffee dates. So I thought, why not add some awkwardness and put a Study With Me server out there?„Study With Me“ weiterlesen
Webinars have been my solution to be able to get experience and education outside my normal courses and work schedules. It has been a go-to tool to consider while waiting for COVID-19 to diminish. During the last few weeks, I have been attending multiple formats online. Some of them were good, but most of them lacked in the quality of their content or technological design. Therefore, I want to share my thoughts on both sides of the channel, both as an attendee, as well as a lecturer of a webinar.„Finding, attending, and staging felicitous Webinars during COVID-19“ weiterlesen
When I officially started the processing period of my Master’s thesis, I soon thought the six months ahead of me were so intangible and unstructured that I tried to set up a schedule. As I couldn’t find a sufficient tool online, I decided to create one myself. In this blog post, I try to put together all the To-Do’s, not only for the writing process, but for the whole working time. At the end, you can moreover find a self-made printable with all the To-Do’s and time estimates.„How to set up a Schedule for the Processing Period of your Thesis (+Printable)“ weiterlesen
This January, I had been given the incredible chance to enact as a part of the dais at the Hohenheim Castle Model United Nations (HCMUN) simulation. Having participated at National Model United Nations (NMUN) in New York City two years prior, I was very excited to help the simulation with the current delegation. To prepare for the role as chair, I got back to the material I also used as a delegate, yet there are some other things to consider as well.„How to Prepare for a Model United Nations Simulation as Dais“ weiterlesen
Becoming a doctoral candidate has never been on my agenda. Right now, I can’t wait to become employed instead of being a long-term student any longer. A PhD seemed out of my reach, because I thought it would not be financially manageable for me. The Research in Europe event has however brought attention to some scholarship and funding opportunities for PhDs in Europe.„How to fund your PhD with a scholarship“ weiterlesen
In advertisement, we often hear slogans like “80% of testers recommend this product”. But do they really? In political trend studies, we hear which parties would be elected into parliament, if people could vote next Sunday. But would the anticipated result really come true? How can we evaluate such numbers and make sense of such empirical data?„Three things anyone can learn about Research Methods“ weiterlesen
When the constitution of Germany was written in 1948, four women fought for the equality of men and women before the law. Since then, men and women have a formally equal standing. But how does this norm present itself in reality? And is it an international given?
Welcome to my new blog about all things science, politics, and studying! For quite some time now, I have searched for an outlet for these topics, as well as my own experience with boosters for productivity, study tips, and co-working. The biggest problem when it comes to blogging is that there are certain niches you need to post about, otherwise you will not again see through the mess ─ and search engines won’t, either. As a person who is, and always has been, interested in the widest range of topics and activities, I have now finally created a new small space for another side of my life.„My Virtual Mind Palace“ weiterlesen
