Advice for success in remote education.
Establish boundaries on your time and space
A critical element of success when working remotely is establishing routines and creating intentional boundaries between focused work and other life activities, such as rest, socializing and play.
Identify a dedicated study space that allows you to concentrate and feel alert. Communicate your needs about that space to friends and family. If a dedicated space isn’t possible, think about what you can do to set intentions on your use of the space by making physical changes. For example, make the bed before working on it, or clear technology off the kitchen table when you are eating.
Keep a calendar or planner to help you remember when to engage with your learning and to know when you can relax.
