Workshop Programme 

 

 

 

 

Optional Pre-event Professional Development Sessions

We are pleased to announce that the first day of the congress will include a selection of educational workshops, exclusively available to registered delegates for a modest additional fee.


The Programme Committee is now inviting expressions of interest from individuals and organisations to deliver these events and the full schedule will be announced here in early 2023.


The aim of the workshops is to enrich the experience of those attending the congress by providing high quality professional development opportunities at an affordable price.


The workshops will take place at the main congress venue on 24th May 2023 and will end in good time for participants to attend the opening ceremony and evening social events.


Each session will last for half a day (3 hours, either morning or afternoon) or a full day (6 hours with a 1-hour break for lunch).
Previous years have seen a large and enthusiastic take-up for these events, and we look forward to replicating this success in Katowice.

 

Call for workshop proposals
The Programme Committee would like to hear from you if you, a colleague, or an organisation you are associated with is interested in running a workshop for EAWOP 2023.


Apart from a requirement to provide high-quality professional development opportunities there is no pre-set format for the workshops. Our aim is to offer a varied programme that will appeal to both academics and practitioners at different stages in their careers. Thus, the focus of each workshop may range from demonstrating a new technique or fine-tuning an existing skill through to advanced understanding of a specialist subject or exploring real-world problems. Suggestions with a clear link to the main congress theme − The Future is Now: the changing world of work − are particularly welcome.

 

The workshop programme is being curated by Programme Committee member Jon Cox, and in the first instance you are invited to contact him at coxjm@btinternet.com with a brief outline of your proposals. We are interested in both new ideas for workshops as well as offers to repeat successful sessions from previous years.

The benefits of leading a workshop
While the main purpose of the pre-event workshops is to enhance the expertise of participants, there are also many benefits for those who run them. These include developing contacts and exchanging ideas with fellow psychologists, being recognised as an expert in a particular field, and being able to showcase innovative products, methods and services. For most though, the main satisfaction comes from making an active contribution to the science and practice of occupational psychology at a major international congress.

 

Prospective providers should note that:
The workshops are strictly in-person events so presenters will need to be available to attend the International Congress Centre on the day of their session.
The process for selecting the pre-event workshops is independent of the main submissions system. Before putting forward your workshop ideas or recommendations, please consider whether the proposed design is more suitable as one of the types of session detailed on the Submissions tab and should therefore be submitted via this other route.

 

There is no payment for designing or running the workshop, although there will be an allowance for travel to the event and for one night’s accommodation where needed. By agreement this can be applied to more than one facilitator where essential to the effectiveness of the workshop and justified by the number of attendees.

 

Expenses will not normally be paid to representatives of organisations deemed to have a commercial interest in leading a workshop – their offers are welcome of course but they are expected to meet their own costs.

 

Workshop providers may also register as a delegate (paying the appropriate fee) and thus be entitled to attend all sessions of the Congress Centre itself.
