Plan Your Time
- Choose your preferred tool to keep track of your schedule, to-do list, and due dates. Some examples include a mobile app, wall calendar, or bound paper agenda.
- Create a schedule which can include setting morning and bedtime alarms, dedicating time to your coursework, physical activity, and relaxation/down time.
- Use syllabi and faculty communications to plan.
- Try to keep all your materials together (pens, planners, textbooks, calculator, folders, etc.).
Discuss Schedules, Boundaries, and Expectations
- Your family or roommates will be better able to support your learning if they are aware of your needs.
- Will you need a quiet space to do work or engage in online class discussions? Do you need to share technology resources?
- Try using noise-cancelling headphones/earbuds, and/or a white noise app if you are in a noisy environment.
