|Course title||Coping with complexity|
This seminar provides a framework for academic practice which is based on the practical philosophy approach of Stephen Covey, adapted to the realities of academia. We dissect the complexity of academic life and help to make it manageable through handling of multiplicity of roles (research, teaching, management, community service, family etc.) and tools for managing time.
This approach goes far beyond time management in a university setting; it will encourage you to link your aims and objectives to the University mission and departmental or group ethos. It will also illustrate the need to have a good work/life balance and provide information about various ways of achieving and maintaining peak physical and mental condition.
