Time Management in Education
The learning experience will never be the same following COVID-19. But one thing is for certain: students, faculty and administrators are all struggling to cope with the transition to remote education. Anxiety, communication challenges and technical woes are some of the hurdles schools are facing.
We surveyed 1,019 students in colleges and universities across the United States. Get the stats from our research study, including:
School is a juggling act, between managing time and school-life balance. Time management (34 percent) and balancing other commitments (25 percent) are the two biggest challenges students face in achieving their academic goals. School-life balance is further complicated by the fact that 72 percent of students participate in one to six extracurricular activities and non-school commitments each week.
Student-faculty interaction outside the classroom is key to unlocking academic success. 28 percent of students see real value in meeting regularly with their professors and faculty advisors. So they’re prioritizing time in their schedules to meet with their professors, with 26 percent doing so several times a week.
The traditional office hours setup is antiquated and in dire need of automation. 34 percent of the respondents say their professors use email to coordinate office hours, while 32 percent say office hours are simply listed in the school syllabus. This is despite the fact that students use upwards of 15+ apps daily and would prefer to use online scheduling tools.
