Academic Success Tip - Course Outlines

You are in your seventh week of classes now.  This week's tips are based on student questions that have been asked recently. 

What if I am behind on my course outlines?

  • For each course, calculate how many weeks behind you are on outlining the material. 
  • Start with the course that is most caught up and finish that outline first.  Then work on the next outline that has the fewest weeks to catch up and so forth.
  • If you are equally behind in several outlines, start with the course that you think you can do most quickly. 
  • If you have not started any outlines, decide which outline will be the easiest to do and complete it first.  Next easiest and so forth.
  • Block off time in your schedule to work on each outline over several days rather than expect to find 8 or 10 hours straight for outlining.
  • Set goals for when each outline will be current.  Try to have all outlines completed within 10 days – the earlier the better.
  • You will need to sacrifice weekend “fun” time to get on top of your outlining so that you only have to add new material each week.
