Consent to the processing of personal data for the purpose of conducting the study "Integrating UN Development Goal No. 8: Promoting good work into university education"

 

Dear Sir or Madam,

We are very pleased about your interest in our study on "Integrating UN Development Goal 8: Promoting Good Work into University Education".

The aim of this study is to find out whether and in what way the UN Development Goal SDG 8 on promoting good work and productive employment is implemented in courses and modules of relevant study programs at universities in selected European countries.

In our study, you are asked to be a teacher and/or coordinator of study courses/programs in which future managers are trained for the following professional areas: (1) occupational safety, occupational hygiene, ergonomics; (2) occupational medicine (medical curriculum and further training to become a specialist in occupational medicine); (3) human resource management (business and management schools). The results are expected to provide characteristics of good practice in the implementation of SDG 8 in curricula as well as suggestions for improving learning and working conditions.

This study does not require you to give your name. In principle, participants in the study can assume anonymity when taking part in the study. However, the regional breakdown of the study means that your person can be inferred. In particular, if only a few universities are located in the Member State of the European Union or a third country in which you work, the completed questionnaire may possibly allow conclusions to be drawn about your person.

Therefore, we ask for your consent to process personal data to conduct the study described above. We will not link your answers to further studies or even to your name. You can find the details of the processing in the enclosed privacy policy.

Participation in the study is voluntary. Your consent can be withdrawn at any time as long as your answers have not been merged into aggregated data, if we can trace your answers back to you at all. The revocation of consent does not affect the data processing up to that point.

You can send your revocation to the following e-mail address: ulrike.bollmann@dguv.de

I agree to the privacy policy:

We thank you very much for your participation!

TO THE QUESTIONNAIRE

 

With the help of the following survey, we would like to find out to what extent essential aspects of SDG 8 for the promotion of good work and employment are represented in the study programs of your university and beyond. For this purpose, we ask on the one hand about knowledge content and skills that are of central importance for the design of good work and employment. On the other hand, we are interested in the generic qualifications taught in your study programmes.

Please note the following before you start:

1. In a first step, select the study program that covers essential content aspects of SDG 8 and/or provides generic qualifications. If possible, please refer to your current program.

2. In a second step, please focus on the part of your study program (e.g. a course or certain modules of a course) that is particularly dedicated to the content or generic qualifications related to SDG 8. 

To make it easier for you, we have selected the following SDG 8 topics:

Topic A „Globalization“:
The adverse effects of globalized economic growth on climate and environment. Options of alternative economic models and of policies to promote a ‘green economy’.

Topic B „Disparity“:
The increase of socioeconomic disparities between global ‘north’ and ‘south’ and within countries. Options of promoting fair and inclusive employment and work and of reducing income inequality.

Topic C „Digitalization“:
The growth of digitalization, automation, and artificial intelligence and its impact on work and employment. Discussion of positive and negative consequences for future development.

Topic D „Work-related diseases“: The global burden of work-related diseases, its causes and consequences. Strategies of promoting safe and healthy work.

We consider the following generic qualifications to be particularly relevant when it comes to shaping good work and employment: 

I. Promoting critical and systems-oriented thinking 
II. Strengthening ethical values, attitudes and behavior 
III. Improving social and emotional skills, including resilience

At the end of the questionnaire, we will then inquire about any important organizational and/or content changes that have occurred to your study program as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic
