Time Management Strategies

Managing your time—both in and outside the classroom—can prove challenging for both new and seasoned instructors. Activities may take more or less time than you have planned. Your students participation or lack thereof can affect the time necessary to complete tasks. You may occasionally find that time has gotten away from you, or that you have finished what you planned and still have fifteen minutes of unplanned-for class time remaining. Outside the classroom, balancing teaching responsibilities with other academic responsibilities, including research, coursework, or committee work provides another kind of challenge. This workshop is designed to provide you with some tools and strategies to manage your time effectively both in and outside the classroom, which can benefit both you and your students.

By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to…

  • Develop and implement a lesson plan with a time-sequence of events.
  • Identify the rationale for sticking with the planned lesson sequence.
  • Make strategic decisions about when it may be appropriate to deviate from the lesson plan.
  • Identify opportunities to shift lecture material, student activities, or media to CourseWeb, to free up in-class time.
  • “Audit” a personal schedule and schedule teaching and other responsibilities for maximum efficiency.
