Now that you have reached the end of this lesson you will:

  • Know the importance of time management as a learning tool
  • Be able to discuss and select from a number of techniques for effective time management for learning
  • Know the process for setting goals
  • Know how to efficiently prioritise your learning activities

What we have seen in this lesson is that the key to successful time management is planning and then “protecting” the planned time.

We are going to wrap up all that we have discussed and learned with a quick questionnaire, which we would ask you to answer with a rating of 1 – 5, with 1 being the lowest and 5 being the highest value representation of your answer:

  • Do you plan in an effort to organise your learning?
  • Do you put daily plans together?
  • Do you allow flexibility in your learning plans?
  • Do you always accomplish all you plan for a given session?
  • Do you plan time for what matters most to you?
  • Does your learning plan get disrupted often?

If you find you have scored 20 or above, you are already well on your way to being an excellent time planner. Less than 20 is not a disaster – time managed learning is a skill that develops with time, practice and experience.

If you have scored less than 20, take some time to revisit the various topics in this lesson and increase your opportunity to improve your time management for learning skills.
