Tick, Tock - Time Management for researchers (ONLINE)
The conduct of research requires us to assume many roles - administrator, manager, technician, IT specialist, statistician, writer - all of which are often piled on top of other tasks, maybe even a whole other job. How can we manage this process effectively and bring a research project to a successful conclusion?
With the clock ticking, we only have one choice and that is to get organised. However, that's easier said than done, especially if you are new to research or you have many professional commitments. This session will teach the basics of effective time management and will apply these principles throughout, in the context of an academic role.
After the session, each particpant will:
- understand the importance of time management
- know the principles of time management
- appreciate how to apply these principles in practice
- be aware of the most common problems and know how to avoid them
