Become your own time manager

Academia Raetica

Time management is about managing our professional and private tasks to meet deadlines, deliver results and to create impact without losing the focus for individual aims and visions. To develop time management skills in a scientific environment inherits special challenges, since research is fundamentally exploratory, and often unpredictable. This interactive workshop will provide common time management techniques to manage both, professional and private tasks with a specific focus on the scientific setting. Participants will learn how to set priorities, plan a week, design the day, and reflect individual habits and preferences. 10 days before the workshop participants are asked to fill an online survey and send feedback about their expectation in the training. This information will provide the base of the workshop set-up, the selection of topics and exercises. Participants will receive feedback before the training.


Participants who complete this comprehensive workshop know keys to time management, how to plan tasks and how to design the day.
