How to Study and Manage Your Time Effectively When Working on the Distance Learning Program. OMRDD/REACH/CUNY Distance Learning Program.
This booklet is designed to help distance learning participants learn to work independently, be self-disciplined, take responsibility for their own work, study, and manage their time. It describes the support built into the distance learning program, such as the instructor, advisor, e-mail partner, supervisor, and program coordinator. Advantages to distance learning are listed, and the three keys to success--decision making, dedication, and planning--are discussed. A section on getting started and being prepared covers these topics: how to choose units, preparation, discipline, and identification of one's learning style. The rest of the booklet provides pointers on how to study more effectively. The following topics are covered in this section: setting study goals, improving concentration, minimizing distraction, and managing time. Some sample time management forms are appended. (YLB)
