In academic year 2018-2019, four seminars will be organized, each rewarded with 1 ECTS (28 hours). Both WAOP-PhD students (who are not a member of the KLI) as well as KLI members can sign up for each seminar.
KLI members register during the KLI registration periods.
WAOP members register by sending an email to KLI.admin@uu.nl, clearly stating the seminar(s) they want to participate in.
WAOP members (non-KLI members) pay a fixed amount: € 20,- for each seminar. The same amount (€ 20,- for each KLI student) will be reimbursed by the KLI.
In each one-day seminar (6 hours) a senior scholar presents work on his/her specialization, including both methodological and theoretical components. Before the start of the seminar, the attendees have to read 3-4 key articles/chapters (8 hours), which are specified by the scholar in advance. The meeting itself features interactive, engaging, and active learning. After each seminar (within two weeks), the attendees write a brief paper (max. 2000 words, 14 hours, pass/fail evaluation) consisting of the following parts:
A description of theoretical approach or research methodology discussed in the seminar.
The application of the research methodology or theory learned in the seminar in the form of a study proposal, which includes at least one specific hypothesis. A plan on how the student could integrate the learned research methodology or theory in his/her PhD project, including possible opportunities and challenges.

Many areas of research and application in Work and Organizational Psychology are predicated on models that suggest the benefits of match, fit, or congruence between different phenomena. Within the area of work stress, research has by and large attempted to establish parameters of good job (re-)design that are universally applicable, or sought to determine the personality types best suited to various job characteristics such as job demands and job resources. What is less well-established is whether and how job characteristics need to match (or not) with other job characteristics.
Key focus of this workshop is on match making between job characteristics to other job characteristics, and on match breaking between these job characteristics and recovery at/after work, in the prediction of health, well-being and performance. As an innovative and groundbreaking work stress model, the Demand-Induced Strain Compensation Recovery (DISC-R) Model of De Jonge and Dormann will be presented and discussed, methodological reflections inclusive.
