My university journey continues with another set of teaching and I’m finally getting used to online learning! It’s still strange to think that I am in a class with a few dozen other people who I can see via a tiny box on a screen, but it’s just something we are learning with 2020 – you have to get on with the new ways of living, including learning.
I enjoyed the remote learning aspect it of my teaching actually, and some of the tasks I had to do within some of the group work was probably made a lot easier by doing it online. Of course, human interaction is missed by learning this way, but I think there are some positive aspects to it.
Now we’re in the middle of the term, it’s the start of assignments, and it’s definitely made me focus more on what I need to do. Like I’ve said before, preparation and planning are key to doing assignments, and that is what I am doing at the moment. Knowing what I need to do and by when, and keeping that in mind is definitely something that can help.
I feel like having a task and a deadline is only half of how you can focus the mind on what needs to be done. They can definitely help, but a lot more goes into writing and studying than just knowing what the end goal is. Focusing on marking guidelines and knowing what is expected is also key, and can hopefully help with the task in hand.
