Managing a research project is a challenge for even the most senior researchers. It is an even bigger challenge for graduate students who must learn the trade and perform well in the end. Getting to the finish line requires specific knowledge and skills most of which are taught in the program. However, two skills are not taught: the management of the research project and the management of one's affect during the project. The two are linked. A lack of skill in managing the project creates delays and re-work which in turn create anxiety. Too much anxiety makes managing the project confusing and frustrating. This workshop will bridge this skill gap.
After that workshop, participants will
What participants said about the most valuable thing they learned:

"Anxiety and ambiguity are managable"
