    Sample of a weekly schedule

  • Keep track: of how you spend your time for a whole week &

    decide where & how you need to adapt your study plan.

    Try to identify: your red and green zones.

    Be realistic: anticipate how long things are going to take on

    the basis of experience.

    Keep an eye on the horizon: know what assessment tasks are

    coming up in each subject so that you can adjust your plan


  • Effective time management IS about

    the satisfaction of getting things done;

    meeting more of your needs in all areas of your life;

    feeling better about yourself;

    leaving yourself with more time for leisure & fun not less.

  • YOU MAY NEED to spend more time

    studying the subjects or concepts that you find

    most difficult.

    NOT beingobsessed withevery minute, miserable & having absolutely NO fun!IS meeting more of the needs in ALL areas of your life

    I WILL learn the main concepts discussed in

    lectures from weeks 1-3

    I WILL read through & summarise chapters 3 & 4

    I WILL work through 5 equations

    RESEARCH shows that its better to study in short, concentrated sessions.

    AIM for a series of 50 minute blocks

    Set study periods

    Identify goals for

    each session

    Plan & prioritise

    Time management

  • SURVEYBefore you begin to study, survey

    the material to get an overview.

    Look at chapter titles; sub headings;

    introductions; conclusions; & so


    Identify key words or phrases that link

    back to your purpose for


    What do you already know about an idea or topic? Jot down your first-response


    As you survey the materials, ask

    yourself what was said about various chapters / ideas in

    the lectures.

    QUESTIONTurn chapter titles & sub headings into navigational aids.

    READRead through the

    material once without making notes.

    RECALLWith the book shut,

    try to recall what you have read.

    REVIEWReview all your notes

    at the end of each study period.

    How? SQ3R study method

  • Develop a style of note taking

  • Your notes might look something like

    Readings Notes Comments

    Marmot, M 2005, Social

    determinants of health, The

    Lancet, vol. 365, no. 9464,


    Marmots (2005) looking at the links

    between poverty, inequality & their

    causes, as a way of understanding

    these factors in relationship to


    He seems to refer to

    global economic issues

    as well as what these

    mean locally Not sure

    how thisll work with my

    essay Come back to


    Anderson, I et al. 2006,

    Indigenous health in

    Australia, New Zealand and

    the Pacific, The Lancet,

    vol. 367, no. 9524, pp.1775-


    Anderson et al. use case studies

    from 3 regions to survey the state of

    Indigenous health & review the

    connections between identified

    health areas & policy.

    I like the way this paper

    looks at the connections

    between government

    policies & health in these

    communities. Still need

    to read a bit more about

    social determinants

    Complicated. But think I

    can see a way to draw

    on Marmot. Yaay!
