If you find it challenging to be self-driven while studying from home, join this virtual accountability group!
Feeling some frustration and guilt around delaying or avoiding a task is understandable. Procrastination is not a reflection of laziness – there are often legitimate reasons why we might put off our work and rely on deadlines to build momentum. To get started on your tasks and projects, attend weekly sessions on Mondays and Fridays to stay accountable to yourself and others in a supportive community environment.
This program is co-facilitated by learning strategists and student peer mentors from both Academic Success and Accessibility Services.
All U of T students are welcome to join.
How The Program Works
The accountability group on Mondays from 10 – 10:40 a.m. offers a non-judgmental and encouraging space to:
- pick up practical tips for getting (re-)started on your work, managing procrastination, dividing your workload effectively and anticipating distractions
- participate in short breakout room discussions with peer mentors to clarify your goals and reflect on your progress
- leave with a plan of action and a list of resources to depend on if you lose momentum during the week
The accountability group on Fridays from 1 – 1:30 p.m. offers a non-judgmental and encouraging space to:
- reflect on your progress throughout the week and positively reframe any setbacks you might have encountered along the way
- participate in short breakout room discussions with peer mentors to assess your work flow practices and make adjustments
- create a plan of action for the weekend and share back with the rest of the group
Feel free to bring your questions and share your past experiences so that we can solve problems together as a group.
