SPRITE+ Co-Director Professor Mark Elliot (University of Manchester) hosted an online workshop catered to Early Career Researchers offering ‘Top Tips’ on ‘Managing Conflicting Demands’. We were delighted to welcome attendees from across our network and the wider academic community to provide ECRs with hints and tips on how best to handle the demands of academic work.
The workshop offered insider guidance from Mark Elliot, who is practiced at handling conflicting demands. He elaborated on helpful tactics from managing a stress-free personal workflow, to easy-to-follow steps of how to 'Capture', 'Process', 'Organise' and 'Engage' in order to handle the vast amount of information and demand that academia entails. This two-part discussion was followed by a thorough Q&A where all queries were answered in depth by Mark, addressing the specific needs of the current and future ECR’s, from e-mail filtering to review schedules for effective prioritisation of actions.
