Summary of thesis

The target of my research project is to study how subjectivation takes place in the context of work and education. My empirical focus is on vocational training in soft skill that treat challenges like conflict management, moderation of debates, teambuilding, self organisation. I suppose that subjectivation is put into effect in these trainings, by the attempt to impact on the behavior of adults in order to improve the atmosphere in the project team and the productivity in dealing with conflicts and the efficiency of labour. The sociological, educational, and philosophical literature about forms and figures of subjectivation and subjectivity serves me to analyse how the participants of vocational training in soft skills are interpellated as subjects. Moreover I want to explore in an empirical field investigation how these participants deal with the specific interpellation, how they rule their selves, how they act on their selves. The different ways to handle this interpellation should be developed as modes how to describe and edit the self by ethnographic field work and semi structured guide lined interviews. I will take part in 4-6 training in soft skills and 1-3 month later run interview with Teamers and participants of these training.

Evaluation in crisis?

Exploration of a systemic approach for the study of science

Internal and external regulation of scientific work considerably relies on evaluation procedures in which experts assess the quality of scientific research in the so-called peer review. However, these processes are subject to a variety of criticism, ranging from overload to particularism, conservatism and inefficiency. Nonetheless, peer review procedures remain the commonly accepted gold standard to judge scientific quality.

This project addresses the diversity of evaluation and reviewing procedures that mark the research system on various levels and focusses on their challenges as well as their dilemmas. On the basis of empiric case studies we conduct a praxeological analysis of evaluation practices in order to seize the conception as well as execution of their particular procedural steps. Crucial references are the broad research on peer review within science studies and the emerging current works in the Sociology of valuation and various case studies carried out by the DZHW and the iFQ (http://www.dzhw.eu/abteilungen/system/projekte). The project's objective is to systematically analyze the variety of peer review procedures in science in order to identify parameters for a differentiation and a typology of evaluation procedures. In a comparative analysis of different evaluation procedures we fathom systematic connections between different procedural steps and alignments of valuation elements, which are crucial for a proper functioning of the scientific peer review system.

Evaluation in crisis? Exploration of a systemic approach for the study of science

Internal and external regulation of scientific work considerably relies on evaluation procedures in which experts assess the quality of scientific research. The peer review system, the central mechanism of quality assurance of scientific work, is highly controversial. Complaints regarding work overload and corruption of the system as well as doubts concerning its effective operation, its proper functioning and its reliability are omnipresent in the discourse. Reproaches against peer review have been particularism, conservatism, proneness to error and inefficiency. Nonetheless, peer review procedures remain the commonly accepted gold standard to judge scientific quality. This project addresses the diversity of evaluation and reviewing procedures that mark the research system on various levels and focusses on their challenges as well as their dilemmas. On the basis of empiric case studies we conduct a praxeological analysis of evaluation practices in order to seize the conception as well as execution of their particular procedural steps. Crucial references are the broad research on peer review within science studies and the emerging current works in the Sociology of valuation. Furthermore, we follow up the various case studies carried out by the DZHW and the iFQ, concerning the evaluation of journal publications, of individual or collaborative grants as well as reviewing and assessment in the course of doctoral examination procedures and appointment procedures for professorships. The project hereby integrates into the research cluster “Evaluation Practices in Science and Higher Education” at the DZHW. The project's objective is to systematically analyze the variety of peer review procedures in science in order to identify parameters for a differentiation and a typology of evaluation procedures. In a comparative analysis the study focuses on the relation between different evaluation procedures in order to fathom systematic connections between different procedural steps and alignments of valuation elements, which are crucial for a proper functioning of the scientific peer review system.

Cornelia Schendzielorz hat zwischen 2012 und 2016 im Fach Soziologie am Centre Marc Bloch promoviert. Das Ergebnis ihrer Arbeit ist unter dem Titel Berufliche Soft Skill Trainings im Beltz Juventa Verlag erschienen. Sie arbeitet zur Zeit als wissenschaftliche Mitarbeiterin am Deutschen Zentrum für Hochschul- und Wissenschaftsforschung (DZHW) in Berlin.
 
Zum Inhalt:
Soft Skill Trainings indizieren die Hinwendung der beruflichen Weiterbildung zu einer „Arbeit am Selbst“, indem sie versuchen den Zugriff auf die eigenen soziopsycho-emotionalen Ressourcen zu aktivieren. Doch wie wird diese Selbstbearbeitung trainiert? Welche Technologien der Selbst- und Fremdführung kommen dabei zum Einsatz? An empirischen Fallbeispielen analysiert die Autorin, welche Selbstverhältnisse und Sozialitätskonzeptionen in Soft Skill Trainings präfiguriert werden, und erörtert, was in der Berufswelt ein sozial akzeptables Verhalten ausmacht.
