Peer Educators Share Tips for Learning During COVID-19

Posted on

Category: Uncategorized

COVID-19 has brought a lot of change to Dalton State College. One thing that has not changed though is the commitment our Tutors and Peer Educators have to help roadrunners succeed. With online learning being the new norm for many students and new precautions in the classroom, it can seem a little overwhelming. Here are some tips from three Peer Educators on how students can continue to thrive and learn during these tumultuous times. 

“Some tips I have as a peer educator is to stay organized with your assignments, due dates and exams. To do this I write a to-do list of all my upcoming assignments with the due dates as well as coloring the assignments based on the class. One study technique you can use is the Pomodoro technique where you do 50 minutes of studying without distractions with a 10-minute break between study sessions. Also, do not be afraid to ask for help. Professors have student hours and peer educators are here to give guidance and help as well. Lastly, I know it’s difficult to stay motivated but know that you are not alone, and we are all figuring it out as we go so keep up the great work!

– Emily Lay

“To succeed you must combine tangible tools and abstract motivation. 

Tangible Tools: Make a realistic and prioritized plan for your success. I make a to-do list twice a week and update my accountability partner (someone who helps you stay committed). 

Abstract Motivation: Keep your end goal always at the forefront of your mind. If you want an A in a course, think of that A. Visualize the moment of your success and how you will feel after earning the grade you want. When you want to quit because you’re tired and lose motivation, remember that feeling and work for it. Earn it.”

-Grace Neff

“Be a responsible student. It is incredibly easy to fall behind in your classes. Although homework can be overwhelming at times, finding a balance and making time for priorities and responsibilities not only gets things done, but it’s a skill necessary beyond college. By doing this, you can be productive and avoid being stressed.”

-Mariela Figueroa
