Week 2 | Part 2: Academic Resources and StrategiesAcademic Resources and Strategies For this assignment I thought on what academic and professional resources were available to me and chose three of each out of the list I came up with. The ones I chose I feel aregoing to be the most important ones for me to be successful in my studies.ACADEMIC RESOURCE/STRATEGY 1 – Calendar or PlannerMy first academic resource I plan to utilize is a calendar/planner. I am a very organized person at heart so I am already good at writing down things that need to be done and when. I bought a new calendar that has a section where you can write down things that need to be done and gives you the option of checking the box as you do it. By writing down my assignments in this planner on the days I would like to get them finished and being able to mark them off one byone will help me to stay focused and she what all I need to work on and when. By doing these things I feel I will have a better experience with trying to balance home, work, family and school. ACADEMIC RESOURCE/STRATEGY 2 – LibraryThe choice of the library truly speaks for itself. Not only is the library a quiet place to goand study it offers a multitude of information and a librarian to help me find what I am looking for when in need. I actually live in a town with a very large university campus and it is open to the community. I intend on using this amazing resource to help me with finding peer reviewed scholarly articles along with having a place to go that gets me out of my house so I am not being
reminded of all the things I need to be getting done there. By doing this I will be able to focus on my task at hand. ACADEMIC RESOURCE/STRATEGY 3 – Involvement My last academic choice is actually a strategy. I am choosing to be more involved with the online classroom and my peers. I have joined the Facebook group offered to us and have been vigilant in checking it at least once a day. I have found that there have actually been times when there was an answer to a question I had due to others wondering the same thing. It has been a huge help with certain aspects of my assignments and other questions in general. I also intend on staying involved on the discussion board even after I have finished my post. During my time as a BSN student I was guilty of just getting on there and reading just enough to get my assignment done. I think that by actually being involved with more than just focusing on my work I can learn from others and what they have to offer.
