Thinking About Time Management Differently
James M. Van Wyck recommends that PhD students make at least three mental shifts about time as they negotiate graduate school, in this essay entitled “Graduate Students Need to Think Differently About Time.”
Managing at UF: The Supervisory Challenge
The Supervisory Challenge is designed to provide University of Florida leaders with meaningful information about the knowledge, skills, and behaviors necessary for being an effective manager in our diverse university environment.
In the fall of 2010, Managing at UF: The Supervisory Challenge was redesigned to align with the University of Florida’s Leadership/Management Competency Model, with new workshops and certification requirements. This certification includes a range of workshops designed with UF in mind. Workshops are free and open to all faculty and staff who are interested in learning more about being an effective manager.
To achieve the “Managing at UF” certification, participants will attend ten required workshops and two electives—for a total of 12 workshops. Employees who choose to work toward the Managing at UF: The Supervisory Challenge certificate can do so at their own pace and complete workshops in any order. There is no time limit for completion of the new certificate. MORE INFORMATION
An excellent resource about research management is the book, “Making the Right Moves: A Practical Guide to Scientific Management for Postdocs and New Faculty,” which is available online from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute.
