Motivation Skills for Research Staff

Motivation is difficult to define, yet easy to lose. This workshop examines how researchers can enhance or recover their motivation from a theoretical and practical point of view. A three-stage plan to reset researcher motivation will be presented. Procrastination is a particular manifestation of reduced motivation and a toolkit for reducing procrastination will be co-developed in the workshop.

Blogging provides a means of share your research and opinions in an informal format, while also enabling two-way communication and discussion. Through blogging you can join or create an online community and promote your work to a wider audience.
