Working toward a doctoral degree is challenging, as doctoral candidates are required to meet several personal or professional demands: they have to plan and master deadlines, solve problems, communicate with colleagues and supervisors and find a balance between work and private life - and they might feel overwhelmed by work.
No matter what stage of their research project they are in, it is possible to counteract: with the use of efficient methods and strategies participants can plan and design the work on their thesis and be able to finish it within a realistic time frame.
The workshop covers the following topics:
• Basic methods for realistic planning - as basis for success
• Methods for the different stages and tasks of a thesis - and for other tasks, that doctoral students individually have to master
• Milestone plan for the thesis - and detailed planning of the next 6 months
• Setting priorities and other standard time management methods
• Self-motivation by goal setting: what comes next - and how can I use that for motivation or volition?
• How to deal with challenges caused by remote work
Participants learn how to develop and install the time- and self-management methods they need to work on their PhD.
They acquire a set of methods and strategies for solving current and future time-management challenges.
… develop a realistic plan for their thesis project
… are familiar with planning methods and can use appropriate methods when needed.
