|Working in pairs:
This activity is directed at discouraging the notion that bad time management is an intrinsic quality, and showing that it is just a set of bad habits that can be broken. Our research showed that students prioritise advice from their peers; however, this can sometimes make matters worse. Getting students to share their proposed strategies with the whole class offers the presenter a chance to comment.
The handout for this activity is available in Word format, so you can adapt it to meet your needs.
