Current Learning Methods

My first degree was mostly lecture oreintated but it also had a fair deal of independant learning. Group work wasn't really much of a main concern and only really necessary for presentations or when we were really really stuck on a particular subject.

Currently i really cannot answer questions just by rote learning, i need to go back and have a thorough understanding of the subject, which allows me to look into other interesting topics if i have time. However, i do use both methods when it comes to exams, because there just isn't enough time to cover everything

Which comes onto the main problem that i have, which shamefully is still- time management. I still don't think that i have mastered this skill, but the best thing to do is to keep trying and i guess its also to try not to do too many things at one time and use the key word…prioritise.

  1. I guess every one struggles with time management and you are rite the key is to prioritise.There has to be a right balance of social life and academic life. So at university you are really responsible for your own self. Lessons learnt from undergrad life.

  2. I've just put online a Time Management activity as part of the Warwick Skills – Personal and Academic Development online resources, which you may find helpful.

    If you do try it, it would be really helpful if you could email me some feedback!

    Thanks!
