A dissertation is not simply a task to be completed, it is a great personal challenge. Researchers live in a perpetual paradox: they are confronted with the unknown, should be innovative and creative and at the same time proceed well structured, meet scientific demands and follow a research plan. This can be particularly unsettling for inexperienced researchers: it can restrict their self-confidence, lead to loss of motivation and in a negative loop can cause working inhibitions.
In this course you learn how an overly rational understanding of science and research can impair thinking, performance and discovery and how in turn creativity can be released beneficially. You will acquire strategies that maximize your creativity and help you to think out of the box in the research process. Finally, you will also learn how to keep your creative thinking alive, be it in the research process or in other professional activities.
