The Efficient Remote Researcher (Webinar)

Tue 8 Dec 2020


The current health situation has led to a radical change in professional and personal circumstance for everyone. But research goes on. And in the new reality of remote working and professional distancing we all need to rethink how to maximize our research effectiveness and efficiency.

This short webinar (with prethinking to help you get the most from the time) will address the routines, habits and tactics of effective and efficient remote researching. We’ll consider practical approaches for working efficiently (including ideas on self motivation) and we’ll shed some light on how to create environments, relationships and connections to help you not just professionally survive, but *maybe* even thrive as a remote researcher.

We’ll consider how to better:

  • Work in isolation (including self motivation)
  • Handle our time productively
  • Manage a research project
  • Realise the right kinds of support and supervision
  • Manage our resources

The sessions will be run by an independent academic consultant who’s been a leader in the field of researcher development for nearly twenty years.

This course will be facilitated online via Zoom

Target audience

PhDs, all disciplines and levels



Before the session, please could you:

a) Think about the most productive transferable tools and techniques that you’ve learned so far (including those that have helped you in lockdown) that help you to manage your time, project and self. Come ready to share what works.

b) Reflect honestly on what habits you have that get in the way of you being efficient (within the context of the types of topics we’re due to cover). Formulate 2-3 questions that you really need to focus on and come ready to ask them.

Whether the session is valuable to you will depend, at least in part, on your input!
