Would you like to feel excited and enthusiastic about sitting down at the computer and getting your assignments done? You are probably laughing at the idea, but it actually is possible and is quite simple. There is a tried and true method that has helped thousands of students around the world to get focused and find enjoyment in their studies. Social writing, based on the Pomodoro Method and sometimes called ‘Shut Up and Write’, is a research based model proven to work for many types of writing tasks or assignments. If you have trouble getting into doing your assignments, and seem to find anything else to do rather than getting down to writing, don’t worry: you are just like most other students. Procrastination is something many students struggle with and it can become debilitating as assignment due dates loom closer and you find yourself getting more and more stressed.
It is even more difficult for online students who don’t have the weekly stimulation and motivation that happens when attending lectures and tutorials in person, where you can bounce ideas off one another and discuss your topics and thoughts with your tutor, lecturer or other students in real-time conversations. Vel will be presenting a workshop on how this method really works to help students feel more motivated and focused on writing and to get assignments done on time, and will run regular virtual Shut Up And Write sessions for keen CUC students.
