The Institute for Learning and Teaching (TILT) at CSU is offering a time management workshop for students at 4 p.m. Sept. 8 in TILT 221. The workshop is free and registration is not required.
Time Management for Busy Students, taught by Darrie Burrage, associate director of learning programs for TILT and a CSU graduate, is 50 minutes. Snacks and refreshments will be provided.
“Time management is a workshop that applies not only to your academic life, but your social life, your professional life and your extracurricular life,” Burrage said. “Knowing how to prioritize and schedule your time in such ways that you are making appropriate space for all your different commitments is something that transcends the walls of the classroom.”
Burrage explained time management is not only about meeting all the commitments students have, but it also involves “making space to breathe a little bit, to take naps, to eat, to take showers, to have fun.”
The workshop is geared toward students who are busy or finding themselves addressing new challenges regarding their schedule. It is also for students who are new at CSU and have a lot going on as they transition into college.
This workshop will be offered again at 5 p.m. Sept. 9 and 6 p.m. Sept. 11.
TILT constantly offers workshops to improve academic and study skills. Some examples include Test Anxiety, Memory and Concentration, Taking Great Notes, and Final Exam Prep.
“Our workshops are founded on the belief that students need extra skills and competencies to achieve academic success,” said Burrage.
