Beating Writers Block Workshop

You know you need to start (or continue) to write – so what is stopping you? Writer’s block can occur at any stage in the process of writing a PhD, and typically not only affects planning but well-being and motivation as well. untitledgyh

We are running a workshop ‘Beating Writer’s Block’ to look at how writer’s block manifests, what causes it and what strategies you can adopt to re-connect with your research, your writing, your confidence and your voice.

Beating Writers Block (CHSS) – 22nd March 2016

Beating Writers Block (CMVM and CSCE) – 19th April 2016

New Workshop: Creating Effective Collaboration

We are running a new workshop on the 22nd March 2016 – Creating Effective Collaboration

Collaboration is a skillset with great benefits for postgraduate researchers, both in researching for their PhD and beyond. This highly interactive workshop is an opportunity for participants to reflect on their strengths, determine what they want and develop a constructive approach to current and future collaborations. In particular, participants will:

  • recognise their greatest strengths and skills as collaborators;untitledlll
  • explore practically what makes collaborations work;
  • identify their own collaboration goals.

This is an interactive session: participants will be expected to work in pairs and small groups, and share their ideas with the workshop.
