Lectures and seminars PUF-V Workshop: From efficiency to effectiveness
Welcome to this workshop on academic productivity! The objective of this workshop is to provide academics with a toolbox for increased academic productivity in order to finish their academic work on time. This workshop is greatly appreciated among researchers and has been given at the University of California, Berkeley, The Royal Technical Institute (KTH) and Lund University.
In academia we focus on what/the content of our work, but sometimes we forget to pay attention to our own work process, or how we work, think, and act. However, the process is important for finishing research projects and managing stress levels. Furthermore, as individuals, we often have one main strategy, or a certain way of thinking and acting, to deal with a variety of situations. Often, our main strategy works fine, but when we encounter new situations, we might need a greater variety of strategies.
