Time management workshop

  • UMCG, Room 3215.0149 (map)
Managing your PhD and your own working behaviour is not always easy. You have to  manage your projects and experiments, write your articles, teach and guide students,  participate in meetings and presumably you have to do lots of other things that may not even  be related to your PhD project. You may find it difficult to decide what to work on, to plan  your day or week, or maybe you are procrastinating a lot, not working on the important stuff.  In this workshop you will be invited to reflect on various aspects of (time) management of  your PhD project. Which goals or milestones do you have? Which aspects in your work are  essential to achieve these goals? Do you spend your time and energy on the right things? If  the answer to this question is no, take action and get back on track. You will get tools to work  more efficiently. You will discover where your inefficiencies are and how to manage yourself  in order to become more productive and to finish your PhD in time.  Our speaker René Niessen (http://www.rcnadvies.nl/) was a PhD herself, and GOPHER is  chipping in to give you a chance to follow a more elaborate workshop with a top expert so  you can get the most out of your precious time!!  Don’t miss out and sign up quickly as places are very limited!!   Costs for participants: Early bird price €15 for PhDs and €36 for non PhDs (before March 4th)    Normal price €20 for PhDs and €40 for non PhDs (after March 4th)

Managing your PhD and your own working behaviour is not always easy. You have to

manage your projects and experiments, write your articles, teach and guide students,

participate in meetings and presumably you have to do lots of other things that may not even

be related to your PhD project. You may find it difficult to decide what to work on, to plan

your day or week, or maybe you are procrastinating a lot, not working on the important stuff.

In this workshop you will be invited to reflect on various aspects of (time) management of

your PhD project. Which goals or milestones do you have? Which aspects in your work are

essential to achieve these goals? Do you spend your time and energy on the right things? If

the answer to this question is no, take action and get back on track. You will get tools to work

more efficiently. You will discover where your inefficiencies are and how to manage yourself

in order to become more productive and to finish your PhD in time.
