HELP! In my role as Vice President Student Support, I am desperately seeking study tips you would like to share with other OU students. The aim is to produce an online resource of study tips which any OU student can download. Ideally I’d like the study tips to be under 75 words (or even shorter). The deadline is Friday 3 September.
I’d love to hear what has helped with any aspect of that thing we all have to do – study. It can be about how you study or prepare for exams, EMAs or assignments. It could include suggestions ranging from avoiding procrastination to recovering from a poor TMA score, or how to get your cat off the laptop without being scratched. Don’t just limit yourself to those ideas – it can be whatever you think would help another student. We’re looking for study tips for any level, not just for new OU students. So, if you think it would help, please share away.
As a default, the names of tips writers will not be included, just in case someone is mentioned who would rather not be. However, if you would like your name or initials added to the tip, please mention that when you post it, along with the name or initials you’d like used.
The bad news is there’s no financial gain because the final document will be available to anyone, free of charge. I cannot promise to include all tips and I might need to merge or edit some. The positives are that you might make a difference to another student and find some useful tips once this document is available.
This reminds me of a comment by AMC Princess Ana (a remarkable young girl with a rare condition called Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenita). She said she’d rather be kind than rich because kind people do beautiful things. I’m hoping many kind OU students will come together to help create a beautiful thing.
Thank you so much if you can help by posting your study tip(s) in response to this article.
