In this week, I have learned various ways to manage and utilize my time. And the most useful way, in my opinion, is making a calendar to track my time every day. Because I think that everyone has equal time and the only difference that will influence how much things we did every day is efficiency. And making a calendar to track what we did can help us to utilize our time more efficiently. Besides time tracking calendar, there is one thing that I am currently using and find it useful, and it is breaking down. Breaking down means break one challenging task into some smaller easier tasks. By doing this, we are able to finish the hard task step by step and thus it can prevent procrastination. After that, I think I can use the time tracking calendar in my academic life. It is because I do not really know how to maximize my efficiency, thus I wasted a lot of time on some meanless things. If I can track my time every day, my efficiency of study can be improved a lot thus I’m able to study more knowledge after that. In total, it is really important to manage our time since we only get limited time.
Hello everyone, I’m Boru Zhu and this is my blog post for ESEPY 1159 module 2. During this week, I have learned a lot of effective tips about online communication and learning. And the one that I would like to share with you guys is academic mailing. Sending mail is still one of our main way to communicate with others online. In the academic world, it is the same. However, the genre of the academic mail is different from our normal daily mail in several aspects. The first thing is that we have to put the receiver’s name at the beginning of the mail, and we should never use some casual words like “hey”, “yo”, “what’s up” in our academic mail. Then, we should not use some online language like “lol”, “lmao”, “rofl” when we work on our academic mail since those words will make our mail looks disrespectful and informal. One more thing that we should take care of is that we should check our spelling and grammar mistakes when we writing academic mail. By doing this, you can show that you do take the mail seriously and expect a serious answer too. And those are the most important things writing our academic mail I have learned in this module.
