Feedback2014

This page contains notes from a meeting where we get feedback for the past year and discuss election procedures. One of the PhD council seminars.

Agenda:

1. Ph.D. council in the previous year

2. Election procedure

  • How does the current procedure work
  • Suggestions about the procedure (will be considered by the next Ph.D. council board)

3. Any other suggestions

  • Courses?
  • Seminars?
  • Social events?

Minutes of meeting

1. Ph.D. council in the previous year

  • Other tasks
    • Suggestion: Representative for doctoral education committee should inform other PhD students more actively about what is going on in the meetings

2. Election procedure

  • How does the current procedure work
  • Suggestions about the procedure (will be considered by the next Ph.D. council board)
    • Would prefer voting: better representation of the opinion of PhD students, not just the neutral party
    • Voting would make more sense if there were multiple candidates; usually PhD council board is chosen from very few people
    • Voting might discourage people from nominating themselves; voting has overhead and takes time
    • Theoretically there's a possibility to complain about the decision, but it's a stronger position to oppose someone who is already nominated, vs. just not voting for someone (and voting for someone else instead)
    • Neutral person can take input from all students when selecting the members of board, so they are not alone in making the decision
    • Interviews made by the neutral person make the selection more in-depth; whereas with voting, you'd vote those you know
    • -> Publish the interviews so that all students can see them, and vote with more information
    • Change neutral person as a recruiter who encourages people to nominate themselves; then everyone votes
    • New rules are formulated for voting and in case of having the majority votes, they will be implemented when selecting PhD council 2016-2017.
