Project Management for Researchers: Designing, Executing & Completing
A Ph.D. is an excellent and unique degree that only a small number of people have the opportunity to experience, but it can also be difficult, frustrating and time consuming. Planning and managing your Ph.D. effectively can make the process less stressful and will help you to finish within your allotted time.
Managing your own expectations and those of your supervisor can be challenging and it is important to frequently review your progress and discuss it. All Ph.D. students must design and manage their own project, stick to a research plan, manage their time, present their work regularly and ensure that they are making sufficient progress.
This workshop will cover key stages in the Ph.D. process and introduce participants to various digital tools and techniques that can be used to help manage your project. It will include a rough timeline from the start of your project to managing and preparing for your viva and will cover subjects such as project management, working effectively with your supervisor(s), analysing your progress and thinking about the next steps in your career.
This workshop is designed for first and second year Ph.D. students, though students from other years are also welcome to attend.
