3rd FOLLOW UP BLOG FOR EFFECTIVE LEARNING STRATEGIES

Follow-up to 2nd FOLLOW UP BLOG FOR EFFECTIVE LEARNING STRATEGIES from Yentl's WSPA blog

I had had problems with working at home since coming back to Hong Kong as mentioned in the past entries, recently, however a wireless is set up at home and have sped up my working progress. It has saved travel time to the library, and more time is spent on work, both that requires internet and don't.

As mentioned last time, I became more realistic with plans and to set up deadlines for starting tasks. Having said that, I still had trouble following plans, the reason being that I was pre-occupied with working experiences this holiday and so I simply cannot carry out my plans. Now that I am finished with the work experiences, I am most certain that I will be able to do tasks as planned. I have set up goals to finish one assignment this week and another one next week, after handing them in, I will work on my law firm applications.

Since deciding to reward myself when appropriate as oppose to whenever, my work process has sped up significantly. I normally reward myself with time to check facebook, treat myself with a nice chocolate bar or watch a TV episode. I have also continued to blog before I work, other than blogging, I figure that working in the library or working at an area where other people are present helps boost my work efficiency; this could be to work at a cafe or the kitchen.

    Hi Yentl,

    A good update. Now with thinking about writing your final entry for this workshop, I’d like you to think about how you will transfer what you’ve learned to when you’re here at warwick. Where can you continue to work, what will you do to keep yourself focussed (not distracted) on your studies.

    One other thing is – have you noticed a pattern of when you are most alert and not? Are you making best use of that time for academic study?
