New Time Management Resources

There are 168 hours in every week.

A time inventory is a conscious effort to record how you spend those hours, and it can help you evaluate your time management habits, reduce time-wasting activities, set realistic goals, and regain control of your time.

Use this Time Management Inventory to help you see where your time goes.

Assignment Checklists

One way to help you manage your time and course-work is to use Assignment Checklists. You can record each discussion, assignment, quiz, and due date for the duration of your course. This will help you visualize all of your upcoming tasks for the course. Additionally, as you complete each task, you can mark it as complete!

We have developed these two Assignment Template PDFs for your use. Download the template and simply fill in the content you need. We have provided an examples for the Week 1 spaces, including reading materials, discussions, and assignments. Simply replace this content with your specific course need, and you have a PDF checklist ready to go!

Learn to evolve and advance in the Digital Age Post-Pandemic!
-Takeisha King, Walden Student

While doing your best on your assignments is important, you are far more than a single assignment or even a single course. For myself, I would spend hours (and I do mean, hours) on every single discussion post and even responses, because I doubted they were good enough. Somewhere along the way, I changed my focus. Instead of focusing on those individual posts and grades, I started to look at my growth as a writer and scholar-practitioner.
