Finish on Time – and feel good along the way
Completing a doctorate is a dream for many – but it can also be very lonely and stressful work. We often focus on the content of our work, but sometimes we forget to pay attention to our own work process, or how we work, think and act. Nevertheless, this process is crucial to completing our work on time and feeling good along the way. During this course you will learn more about academic productivity tools such as the 80/20 principle, focusing on the end product and the unit method, and learn to apply them to your own work situation. This course will provide you with a toolbox for increased academic productivity, and there will also be time for sharing experiences and best practices with other participants.
Doctoral students at Uppsala University from all faculties, regardless of whether you are at the beginning, in the middle or near the end of your doctoral studies.
To give the participants tools to help them increase their academic productivity, finish on time and feel good along the way.
