Aims, contents and method of the course

The doctorate is a project with many phases and tasks. Careful planning will help you stay on top of everything and let you stay focused. This will save you a lot of time and leave you less frustrated.
In this workshop participants will formulate their goals for their research, thereby taking the participants’ specific setting into account. You will learn to plan long-lasting projects, break these down into manageable work packages and realize the tasks effectively. A special focus will be on realistic timelines and how these can be fitted well in to your day-to-day schedule.
Following topics will be discussed in the workshop:
- Analysing the own current situation: at which stage am I, who is supporting me, what is slowing me down
- Project management: Background, concepts and current planning methods for the own project
- Time Management, Tools and Tips
- Planning killers

The workshop will allow plenty of time to work on the own project but also introduce the theory on project- and time management. An active exchange of all participants will be supported.
Participants should already have drafted and discussed first sketches of their dissertation.
In a second follow-up meeting experiences with the tools will be exchanged and problems concerning planning discussed.
