PhD afternoon: Time Management for PhDs

The next PhD afternoon of the ACS will focus on time management, and will take place on the 11th of December 2020. The workshop will be organized by Carmen Rietdijk, a PhD coach at CDr Coaching. More information will follow later.

Time management is a challenge for many PhD candidates. Because research is inherently unpredictable creating a realistic planning can be hard, and sticking to that planning can be even harder. Setting the right priorities and dealing with setbacks are essential skills for succesful PhD candidates. Learning and improving these skills will increase their productivity.    

The workshop will include practical tips and exercises that will be directly applied to each participant’s PhD project. As a result, spending one afternoon sharpening time management skills will pay for itself in an increase in efficiency.

The workshop is open to all PhD candidates of the ACS, because time management is a valuable skill for everyone. More information can be found here.
