This event has now passed.

Date: 12 December - 13 December 2012
Venue: Room 3S512, S Block, Frenchay Campus
Time: 16:00 - 20:00 both days

This programme, run over two consecutive evenings, is aimed at those 6-18 months into their part-time PhD or professional doctorate. It has been designed with the needs of those who are balancing doctoral studies with a wider set of professional and/or home life commitments in mind and is a good opportunity to share experiences, good practice and strategies for managing the process of the research.

The Effective Part Time Researcher will cover:

  • Facilitated activities and discussion to enable participants to talk about their research, the process they are involved in, their skills development and to share good practice.
  • 'Making the PhD fit with the rest of my life' a mix of small group and individual exercises designed to elicit how people manage priorities, how they make their research happen and to share tips and experiences on how they 'get it all done'.
  • Sharing the experience of someone who has completed their doctoral studies part-time and the supervisor perspective.
  • Exploring the role of an academic supervisor for a part-time researcher.
