MODULE SELECTION 201718

10.10.2017

Have you decided what classes you’re taking?

Can you believe it! It is almost five weeks into term already.  By this stage, you will have decided which optional modules you are taking if there are options available on your programme.  For the most part, you will have added them on your web-courses account or advised your school office around your decision.  There is, however, one final piece of homework we need you to complete to ensure your student record is correct.

If you have optional modules on your record we need you to drop the options you’re not taking from your record.   Week commencing 16th of October we will be in touch with you by email to remind you about this process.  Full instructions on the process will be included in the email and it can be completed in just a few short steps.

This is a small task, but it is exceptionally important so please don’t put it on the back burner, do it immediately so we can accurately record your exam and assignment results and they can be released without delay later in the year.

Planning for Semester 1 Exams

06.11.2017

Planning for Exams

Okay so Halloween is over and it’s back to the grindstone for the next couple of weeks. 

With just a little over a month to go to until semester one exams kick off if you haven’t already got your action plan for study together now is the time to get it done.

Ask yourself the following questions when it comes to planning your study schedule:

1.       Do I have somewhere suitable to study where I won’t be interrupted constantly?

Sitting in an area such as the Kitchen where there may be a high volume of traffic with people coming in and out will hinder your efforts.  

 

It may be an idea to get out of the house altogether and go to the Library where the environment is much more conducive to studying.  Don’t forget you can use any DIT library but you can also avail of facilities at your local library.

 

2.       What dates and time can I commit to?

There are lots of different types of students at DIT, some of you work full-time, some have family commitments but most of you will have to schedule some time for exam revision.

 

Did you know that the most successful people in the world don’t write to-do lists they simply add tasks to their calendar and stick to their schedule. Take a leaf from their book, all students have a very useful online google calendar which comes as part of your student email account this could be used to plan study time.

 

Take some time to access your calendar and add time to your schedule , if you have given this time to yourself for study you will be less likely to give it away don’t forget to plan some downtime into your schedule this is also really important.

 

3.       What is my learning style?

Did you know that there are different learning styles and knowing your style can be a big help when planning and carrying out study check out this online quiz to help you find your style. 

http://www.educationplanner.org/students/self-assessments/learning-styles-quiz.shtml

 

4.       Have you asked for help or considered Group Study?

If you really don’t understand a topic it might be a good idea to discuss this with your lecturer while you still have a couple of weeks to exams they may be able to offer some good advice on getting to grips with the topic.  Alternatively, you might consider group study maybe some of your peers are really well up on the subject and it may be a good revision tool for them to explain it to you so look into this as a solution if you are stuck.

 

5.       Don’t Panic…

While exams are coming up pretty soon you still have some time to organise yourself and get working…. Now is the time to do it so get cracking
