What do research students do to finish on time, to overcome isolation, doubt and writer’s block, and to enjoy the process? And just as importantly what do they do in order to spend guilt-free time with their family and friends and perhaps even have holidays? If this sounds appealing, then this session will be of particular use to you.
Based on research and experience with thousands of research students and post‐docs, this workshop describes the key habits that make a difference on how to quickly and easily complete your research. Just as importantly, these habits can greatly reduce the stress and increase the pleasure involved in research.
The workshop will be presented by internationally recognised public speaker, educator and researcher Hugh Kearns (Flinders University, Australia) on the first day of the Baltic Sea Science Congress (15-19 June 2015) under the Latvian presidency. Find out more and register here.
