Teaching Tips

It’s never too late

While working with a faculty member this week, I realized that now, more than ever, we all need to put systems in place that support us in being more organized. Since I have found this to be true for me in general, I realized my courses would also need this organization. When I work with students on time management, we often check in mid-semester and organize their major assignments for the remainder of the term. I also do that when I am planning my own courses.  

So, if you find that you’re needing a little bit more structure or organization for the remainder of this semester, check out the grid I use to organize my courses. If you are finding that students need support with keeping track of their assignments, I’ve also included a grid for them. Regardless of the time in the semester, it is never too late to put systems in place. Happy week 11 to all!
