Course Description

This workshop is held in three ZOOM-sessions and teaches skills to manage the PhD as a project. Day one and two focus on mid-term project planning, day three on calculating one´s own workload, setting priorities and organizing time on the level of daily and weekly routines. In this context participants reflect on their individual working style, learn how to deal with stress and with losses of motivation in the long run. All in all our approach is to demystify the process of a doctorate by seeing it manageable.

The workshop´s methods range from trainer input to individual project planning, group works and plenum discussions. The course is completed by a short “Survival Kit PhD” where participants profit from sharing their experiences with peers and with the trainer.

To meet the needs of the participants they will be asked to fill out a questionnaire before the workshop. They will probably also be asked to read some presentation material beforehand (max. 90 minutes preparation).
