Researcher toolkit workshop three: how to maximise your productivity

'How to maximise your productivity' is the third workshop in a set of five that constitutes the University of Plymouth researcher toolkit. Doing a PhD requires a lot of self-motivation, and to stay motivated and productive you need to be in the right mindset. 

This session will cover how to notice when you’re not in the best mindset, and what to do about it. Our aims for the session are to:

  • consider what makes a good researcher
  • understand which factors influence our productivity and success
  • learn a range of techniques for maximizing productivity and success
  • practice using these techniques to overcome some common difficulties you may face during your PhD.

Our workshops are delivered twice during the academic year and repeated as a webinar.
