College opens a new world of opportunities and freedom. Gone are a routine daily schedule and teachers who remind you to turn in your assignments. Instead, you get to set the pace for your day and choose when and how you will study around your college classes. This freedom can present new challenges and problems as you learn how to become an independent learner. However, becoming both an effective manager of both your time and tasks will set you up for success.
A TASK means work that requires to be done. In college, these tasks/work varies from course to course and professor to professor. Tasks may include: completing required reading for class discussion, taking quizzes or exams, collaborating on a group project, creating a presentation, writing a paper, doing research, etc. Task management in college involves overseeing an assignment through planning, performance, and completion. It requires you to have good time management and organization skills as well as the ability to control your desire to procrastinate.
Some of the key areas of focus on this Task Management page are:
