LEARNING STRATEGIES FOR THE NEW NORMAL : PHYSICAL CLASSES

  

Without a doubt, 2020 has been one of the hardest years for anyone, however by March 2021 despite with the current pandemic, colleges and universities will soon open their doors to students as announced by the Ministry of Higher Education Malaysia. Here are some strategies to help you prepare yourself in transition back into person classes:

1. Maintain a healthy sleeping schedule

Not having to go to classes in person means that you can stay up and binge-watch YouTube videos all night. Your sleeping schedule might be a total mess right now. How are you going to fix that if things go back normal? The answer is, fix it now.

You’ll thank yourself for abiding by the ‘early to bed, early to rise’ principle when university opens up again.

 2. Ask for help

You can always ask for help if you're stuck with something, or if something just doesn't seem to make sense. Chat about the things you don't understand with your teachers or lecturers. Speak to your fellow students and colleagues, too.

 3. Expect and adapt to new changes

Things will likely be different when you go back to campus. Whether it be attending on alternate days or reduced class sizes, get ready to experience some adjustments in the way school will be structured from thereon. Make sure you know exactly what those changes are by asking your teachers or contacting the university administrators to mentally prepare yourself.

4. Stay Motivated

It helps to bear in mind your reasons for doing all this hard work while you are studying, such as a course or profession that you are working towards. Having something in your study space to remind you of your goals will help. With motivational quotes or pictures of people you respect and family members you want to make proud of you, you could also decorate your study room.

5. Protect yourself

Just because university has resumed doesn’t mean Covid-19 is completely over. Always wear your mask, bring hand sanitiser, wash your hands, and keep a safe distance from others wherever you go. Stay home if you have symptoms or have been in contact with someone who was infected. Remember that you have a duty to protect yourself and your classmate by strictly following SOP.

 At the end of the day, keep that positive attitude and you’ll do great regardless of the method of teaching. We wish you the best of luck in the new university year!
