Research involves two very different experiences of time - fast and slow. Researchers are required to work quickly and produce high output (publications, conferences, grants). Yet this work is also expected to be high in quality and demonstrate wide reading, deep thinking and critical engagement. How can we reconcile the expectation to perform and advance with the reality of the slow and patient work that research requires? This masterclass examines experiences of time in research culture, particularly in relation to time pressure, productivity anxiety and the pressure to achieve. How does working in a competitive, fast-paced environment impact how we do our work and see ourselves? How aware are we of these effects? Together, we explore your experiences of working in the university and discuss the benefits of, and practical strategies for, slowing down and working with greater awareness and focus. 30/03/23. 2.5 hrs. 1000-1230 AEST. Presenter: Michelle Jamieson, the Mindful Researcher.
