After two years of remote study, it’s great to see so many students returning to campus. Here are some tips from the Library’s Honey Labs Writing Support service to help you manage the transition back to face-to-face learning.
Get ready for discussions
Great things can come from being in a room with other people wanting to learn. Taking part in discussions gives you the chance to learn from other people and consider alternative perspectives. A little bit of preparation before class will mean you’re ready to discuss a range of topics.
Check in with your lecturer/tutor
Ask their advice about the best ways of approaching their course this trimester. Don’t be afraid to ask for help if there’s something you don’t understand or if a problem arises. Before you meet, make a list of the questions you want to ask and begin with the question that’s the most important.
Network with your classmates
A strong supportive group can raise everyone’s performance. Look out for others in your class and encourage everyone to do well. Consider forming an informal study group so you can ask questions about things you don’t understand, revise together and boost your motivation when things get tough. Why not book a group study space in the Library?
It’s normal to feel some anxiety about coming back to campus for face-to-face classes. If you’re finding it hard, connect with Griffith’s student support services.
