Course Description

Most of the content of your dissertation is now clearly defined. Outline and structure are beginning to take shape and the submission deadline is drawing closer. Your main question is: “How can I use the remaining time most efficiently?"

This workshop provides you with useful tools to tackle the final stage of your dissertation with as little hassle as possible. Get to know tried and tested methods for developing your own project schedule. It is also important for you to keep working continuously until you finally submit your dissertation: learn how to develop helpful strategies to cope with persistent levels of stress and strain. Depending on participants' specific needs and interests, we will also focus on techniques for efficient writing, the topic of supervision and support, and questions concerning the defense.
If you already participated in other project- and time-management workshops, the “Getting it done”-workshop is an excellent opportunity to remember strategies and techniques that already worked for you in the past, to refine them, and to commit yourself again to using those methods that really help you to be productive.
