Description

Managing your milestones, or why researchers run out of time

When you start your PhD there seems to be a lot of time to get things done, yet most HDR candidates do not finish on time. How can you manage your candidature so that you meet your milestones on time and achieve your own research goals, within four years? In this workshop we will focus on what successful candidates do (given the challenges HDRs face this year, these tips matter more than ever!). We’ll discuss the ideal timeline of candidature and the multiple variations that are possible. We’ll explore the factors that tend to impede progress and strategies for managing your way around common candidature obstacles. Finally we will explore how to use digital tools to support your own research and writing workflows and juggle competing priorities. If you sometimes finish you day thinking you have done virtually nothing to progress your PhD, and you are worried about it, this workshop is for you.

This workshop is part of the Science, Health and Medicine Career Development Framework program and can be counted as a valid activity

By the end of this workshop you will be able to:

  • Describe the key milestones in candidature (and the expectations on you)
  • Recognise barriers to successful completion
  • Apply project planning tools and techniques to your own research project

This workshop will be presented by Dr Cally Guerin, a Researcher Developer in the Researcher Development Unit at The Australian National University. She has worked in researcher education since 2008. Her research interests include research writing, academic identities, the academic workforce, and doctoral education. She is a founding co-editor of the DoctoralWriting blog. Cally is a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (now known as Advance HE). You can read more about her research on ORCiD and here, and follow her on twitter @CallyGuerin.
