Getting tasks done (IMPRS-UFAST skills course)



A PhD. is a marathon not a sprint. The sheer number of different tasks that need to be done can sometimes be overwhelming. Being able to set goals, prioritise tasks and remain motivated are skills essential for the progression and achievement of your PhD.

Depending on the needs of the participants, this flexible workshop can cover:

1. Goal setting techniques

2. Prioritising tasks to remain efficient

3. Balancing differing potential returns and motivations

4. Decision making

5. Retaining a handle on the jobs to be done and the bigger picture
