Dear friends and colleagues,
TiSSA organizes, together with the Department of Social Work & Social Pedagogy of Ghent University and the Centre for Sociological Research of the KU Leuven (Belgium), and with the support of the Doctoral School of Social and Behavioral Sciences of Ghent University, a series of online lectures as part of the online doctoral course "Social work research as a practice of transparency – edition 2023". The course will be spread over four training days, each consisting of two main parts, with the total of 24 contact hours. Each morning session is plenary for all interested researchers (3 hours) and will consist of two lectures by (international) experts in conducting social work research. In the afternoon, we organize interactive seminars with the enrolled PhD students and lecturers (you can enroll here). Each PhD student will present his/her work during one of the training days. Participation is free of charge, but please make sure you have an account on Zoom (or Google/Facebook) to join through the zoom link.
