启动学期抵销权:做一个每周模板

你现在感觉如何有关启动学期?

一个策略,我觉得大约学期ALLAY焦虑有用的是需要一些时间,规划出我的工作周会怎么看。这样做可以让我觉得我在我的学期的控制,如果和清楚地表明,它可能有一个冷静和平静学期。(我解释的重要性taking control here。)

夏末通常包括在每日和每周的工作流程为学者的转变。在夏季,我们大多数人有较少的承诺,我们很多人不教。就个人而言,我一直做了点,以避免额外收入的诱惑,并在夏季并不教。至于行政责任,这些起租为一体的进步在一个人的职业生涯。不过,我尽量保持那些在最低限度在夏季。因为我的研究兴趣的,我也通常花我在美国以外的夏天几乎所有的。

刚刚过去的这个夏天,我前往危地马拉和墨西哥 - 这也解释了为什么我还没有张贴到本博客所有夏天。

今年八月,再一次,我发现自己看往秋季学期和思考我如何去安排自己的时间。我的孩子在周一开始上学了,我教我的头等舱9月4日这给了我一些时间来适应节奏学期的全部力量开始之前。在此期间,我打算尝试新的时间表,看看它是如何为我工作。

这个想法是,我将创建一个每周安排有我的固定约会的学期,也开辟出时间的事情,我需要做的,但可以在任何时间:备课,读,写,运动,吃饭,回应bepaly安卓客户端电子邮件。

Kerry Ann Rockqeumore calls this schedule your “骨架“。她建议制定每周一个。矿山看起来并不像在所有的骨架,所以我更愿意把它称为一个模板。我发现它有用在学期的开始和设置您的日历约会重复做一个模板,这样你的模板已准备就绪,每星期,当你决定你的具体目标。

如何使每周模板


When making my weekly template for the semester, the first thing I think about is teaching, as teaching has a fixed schedule and I need to set aside time to teach and to prepare for class. I am fortunate to only be teaching one class this semester. Thus, I block out the time I will teach as well as a few hours to read and prepare for class. I am teaching a graduate seminar and we will be reading a book each week. Thus, I need to set aside time to ensure I finish reading the book. I will have time to read for this class in the evenings, after the kids go to bed, but, from experience, I know I also have to set aside time during the day to read and think about the books before class.

接下来的事,最多就是办公时间。我已经设置那些周四下午。

旁边是写作。我知道我写最好在早bepaly安卓客户端晨。我的孩子们将上午8:30每天早晨离开家。而且,我的目标是写每天早上两小时。bepaly安卓客户端从以往的经验,我知道我需要预留两个半小时,以在两个小时内写就搞定了,所以我会抛开上午8:30设置为11:00每天早晨我。一旦我这样做,我记得我需要更高效的在周三的时候我教,所以我切周三回至10:30,给自己一些额外的时间来准备类。

我要上去校园星期三任教,并于周四的办公时间。我通常骑自行车去学校,和我花大约45分钟。所以,我留出一小时才能到周三和周四的校园。骑自行车往返学校也算作锻炼这两天。一旦我这样做,我记得我经常不中星期四上班时间完成我所有的管理任务。所以,我决定我应该去学校,周五,以及和打理生意。我可以利用周五下午写报告,提交收据,审核材料,并清理我的电子邮bepaly安卓客户端件收件箱。

We all know how time-consuming email can be. So, I set aside another hour before lunch each day to take care of email. If I focus on email and avoid being sucked into the Internet vortex, this should be enough time.

然后,我记得我还需要预留一些时间来阅读。正如我前面提到的,我确实觉得时间在晚上阅读。不过,我也需要时间在白天下载文章,订单,然后选择什么,我会阅读。所以,我决定抛开周一下午来选择读数和一周阅读。

我还需要在我的daily exercise. I will get in enough exercise from Wednesdays to Fridays by biking ten miles back and forth to work. So, on Mondays and Tuesdays, I set aside an hour for exercise each day.

I color-coded my schedule so that I can see at a glance how much time I am dedicating to writing (red), admin (green), teaching (orange), and self-care (purple).


周线图模式是一种模式,而不是一个任务

As I make this schedule, I know from experience that probably no week will go exactly like this. However, it helps me to have a structure. It also is a reminder that I am very busy and have lots of things to do, even though I am only teaching one course.

不可避免的是,有人会问有我已预留了别的一个时代期间与我会面。这将是很好,虽然。有我的理想星期的这个可视化可以让我看看有什么我需要为了使会议时间到了走动。

If I need to have a one-on-one meeting, my first suggestion will be that the person come to my office hours. If that does not work, I have also set aside time on Thursday and Friday afternoons to meet. If neither of those times work, I will move things around. For example, if I need to meet on Tuesday afternoon, I will have to spend some time on Monday preparing for class. Or, if we meet on Friday at 11, I will have to get an early start on my writing and pack my lunch to take to the office. If the meeting is casual, I can suggest we meet for lunch any day of the week.

If I am asked to join a group meeting, I will suggest that the meeting happen on Thursday or Friday afternoon. My next preferred time will be a different afternoon. As usual, I will do my best not to schedule meetings during my writing time, as I know from experience that mornings are my most productive times for writing.

What about you? What will your ideal week look like? Do you find making this kind of schedule helpful?

  1. I love this. I'm better about my weekly planning than my semester planning. One added benefit of doing this is that it helps you be really clear about how busy you are and how full your schedule really is when you add in all of these things. For people who have a hard time saying NO to things, this definitely helps because you can see how full your usual schedule is with one quick glance!

    1. 是!这成为我很清楚,因为我这样做。我只教一个研讨会非常荣幸,但是,有一次我填写了我的时间表,很明显,我还是会很紧张。

  2. 我将在这里补充我写了一个基于我的过去和现在的经验,这个职位。这学期,我教一个班,这是一个莫大的荣幸。

    If you are on leave and are not teaching, it can be very useful to make this sort of schedule as you will see that you do not have "all the time in the world" to do things. Instead, a rhythm and schedule will keep you on track.

    如果你所教的四个班,做这样的安排将帮助你什么时候和你是否可以写现实。bepaly安卓客户端你能在30分钟内,每天挤?如果不是,那么决定不现在就做,做不紧张了。如果可以,那么弄清楚何时做。

    1. 这一次,我用的iCal。我创建重复事件有每星期他们发生。我用不同的日历创建不同的颜色。

      我可以做同样的与谷歌日历 - 它只是不同步,以及对我的iPhone。

    2. 我用谷歌日历和它完美的作品出于同样的原因为iCal和不同步到我的手机(我有一个Android)。另外,我可以“分享”我通过邀请功能,这意味着我的家人知道我的日程规划机场抵达,等安排,我可以看到我的搭档和我在同一个日历日程为好,颜色编码。我喜欢的提醒功能也一样,你可以设置为计算机和/或电话弹出式窗口或电子邮件。

    1. Congrats, Eva! Yes - it does sound like planning will be even more critical than before.

  6. haha, this is exactly what i do, although i pretty much never follow it. homework always ends up throwing things off, as do those meetings and admin work requested by supervisors. but when things get really hectic, it's nice to go back to 'the plan'.

    我的朋友湖特伦顿沼泽写了类似的方法,被称为“阳光照射 - 太阳落”的原则。他让他第二天的日程安排睡前每天晚上。我已经八九不离十采取两种方法杂交:我有一个基础的时间表,可以帮助我保持稳定的每个季度的感觉,但我认为每周(日,如有必要)更新。
