ERA and the AAG's Student and Early Career Group are delighted that Dr Natasha Ayers, iPrep WA Coordinator, will facilitate a post-ERA / pre-AAG conference workshop -

Maintaining a Work-Life Balance as a Researcher

Completing a research project successfully requires strong project management skills to help you set realistic goals and achievable milestones. Being a productive researcher requires strategies to manage your time effectively and the ability to be focused and mindful. By being more efficient with our work time we can achieve a better work/life balance.

This session will offer practical strategies to help you develop a robust project management plan for your research project. Ideas will be shared on strategies to organise your research projects, manage the endless emails and become a more mindful researcher to maximise your productivity and enjoy life more.

Key Learning objectives: 

  • Recognise the importance of mindfulness to be a more productive and efficient researcher
  • Articulate your personal and career goals
  • Define SMART (specific, measureable, achievable, realistic, timely) goals for your research project
  • Identify key stakeholders in your project and develop a communication plan
  • Develop a project timeline to track major tasks, milestones and deadlines for your research project, with contingency strategies
