In the School of Social & Behavioral Sciences, we are working diligently to provide resources for our students and to ease the transition to remote learning. We will continue to update this page with new resources as they become available.
Also keep checking the Andrews University page for Remote Learning Resources.
1. Develop the mindset that YOU are in charge of your education, and you can thrive, not just survive, through this disruption. God promises to guide and go with us. Choose to make lemonade out of lemons.
2. Log in to learninghub. Showing up to every class, ready to focus fully, is the first step to success. Check your device meets the minimum technical requirements to study online (email your teachers and department right away if they don't).
3. Communicate with teachers and advisors regularly. Read your emails daily. Remember that your department and faculty will send emails to your @andrews.edu email so you will need to check that email. Respond as requested. Then take the initiative.
4. Ask for help when you need it. Everyone is eager to help you succeed. Open and proactive communication will help students and teachers alike, as we navigate changes in teaching and learning remotely.
5. Make and stick to a schedule. Share this with family, roommates, or housemates to hold you accountable. As you figure out how to study remotely, with one less week of classes, you will need more hours to complete studies than you did on campus.
6. Use time management techniques to beat procrastination. With more flexibility comes more responsibility. Watch this video to learn how to identify time wasters, to do one thing at a time, and to break large projects into smaller, more manageable tasks.
7. Connect with others. Physical distancing yes, but social solidarity is key to living fully even in a pandemic. Reach out to classmates to work on projects and keep in touch. Worship together with family. Reach out to others in need (calls, video chat, errands for elderly, etc.). Join in new opportunities Andrews provides (see below & emails).
