5.2 time management

Students need help in learning effective time management. Allocating realistic amounts of time means effective learning for students and effective teaching for faculty.

These tips are specifically directed to students, but we all can learn something new, too.

Web-based Research

There are lots of different web search activities. For the module on research and trusting sources, I ask students to find a wikipedia article of interest to them and look at the history and discussion as well as the text of the article. I have them report their findings in a discussion so everyone can see their selections and analysis. The results are wonderful. For the most part Wikipedia is a good resource, but it is clear to students after this assignment, that they really need to find other sources as well – which was the learning objective.
