Starting an ambitious project like a PhD requires planning, time management, work discipline and a clear mind around goals, expectations, and respective roles between the PhD candidate and the supervisor.
In this half-day workshop, we cover the following topics through short presentations and discussion:
Target group: PhD candidates (first or second semester) from all faculties
Facilitator: Benjamin Rudaz, Graduate Campus
Research in general, and a doctorate in particular, can be a lonely activity, and a source of stress, self-doubt and mental blocks. Isolation is an ideal environment for these feelings to thrive, and puts a strain on morale and analytical capacities. The restrictions of lockdown have taken this risk to a new level, by putting pressure on relationships and forcing everybody into home-office.
The Graduate Campus invites you to take the time for a short online session (max. 6 persons) to share between peers the challenges, questions, and potential solutions to this weird period. The discussion will be facilitated by a member of the Graduate Campus, and the core of our time together will be devoted to peer-to-peer exchange.
If individual situations require it, a separate discussion with a member of the Graduate Campus can be scheduled after the session, to allow for a more in-depth discussion.
Facilitator: Mélanie Bosson or Benjamin Rudaz
