Adapting to Distance-Learning

Posted in category: University on 6 May, 2020

Due to the current situation with Covid-19 we are now studying online and due to my own personal circumstances I have returned to Australia which means not only am I getting used to the reality of studying online, but I also have the inconvenience of having my classes late at night. The transition to online learning has not been overly difficult and although my classes are at an unfavorable time, it just means my early morning routine is out of WHACK!

We are using Zoom which I find very easy to navigate and as always, the lecturers continue to be incredibly supportive both during class discussions and outside of class. So adapting to distance-learning has not been too much of a challenge – the quality of teaching remains the same and I still continue to engage with my fellow students.

The only thing I would say that has been a little bit challenging would be being back at home and studying in my bedroom. I find it very hard to motivate myself at home, in Sweden I would usually study on-campus or at the local library and then reward myself with a 5kr bulle (cinnamon bun). Obviously I cannot do that now with Australia’s isolation restrictions in place and it’s hard to find a good bulle in Australia.
