Being a doctoral student means to experience much more autonomy than in many other fields of activity. This however, requires high levels of self-organization. In this workshop you will be introduced to several aspects of effectively organizing your PhD project. You will reflect on your individual use of time and develop strategies for motivating yourself on the long run.

Contents in brief:

  • Planning a project: What are the phases or a project and their core tasks? How do I formulate project goals? How do I set up a project plan?
  • Time planning and prioritizing: How do I distribute my tasks over the week and avoid time pressure?
  • Self-motivation: How do I motivate myself? How do I deal with typical ups and downs during the PhD?
  • Analyzing personal strengths and weaknesses: Which resources can I rely on? What do I need to improve and how can I plan my development?
