How to be an Effective Researcher In-Person

A one-day workshop for postgraduate researchers in the first year of their doctorate.   Drawing on the experience of their first few months, the course approaches the PhD as a project and addresses issues of planning, time and resource management, collaboration and self-management.  This includes overcoming procrastination and making the most of the supervisor and student relationship.

This is a workshop focused on learning through practice, reflection and discussion and requires participants’ contribution throughout.

Aims and Objectives

  • Reflect on your experiences of the early stages of your PhD process
  • Work extensively with your peers, learning from each other throughout
  • Develop your awareness and practices in relation to:
    • Time management, prioritisation and overcoming procrastination
    • Your PhD as a research project and therefore how to manage it
    • Supervision and effective collaboration
    • Reflection and learning from experience
