Target Audience: PGR Students

With research activities, keeping up with the literature, publishing, tutoring and writing to consider, it can be challenging for researchers to fit everything in. How do you finish everything when you’re under pressure? Why is there never enough time to
do what you want to do?

In this workshop, participants will be introduced to techniques to optimise their time and discuss working patterns with others. Participants will evaluate what they currently spend their time on, what they would like to prioritise, how to measure their progress and how to keep motivated by considering what works best for them. The workshop will include individual exercises, short presentations from the instructor, group discussions and
examples of good practice.


At the end of this workshop participants will have:

• knowledge of how to apply these techniques to their own
personal working style;

• an understanding of their priorities and how to optimise their

• a time management strategy that can be adapted on a
regular basis to suit their workload.
