5 Bits of Advice About: Workload

  1. Know your calendar, keep a diary, and don’t let deadlines build up. This seems obvious, but is so often a cause of issues.
  2. Share lesson plans. You don’t need to plan everything from scratch.
  3. Ask for help, especially when things seem unreasonable. You’ll get an idea of what is really important.
  4. Consider the benefits and opportunity cost of extensive marking.
  5. Don’t volunteer for loads of extra things as a result of your first term’s enthusiasm. Determine if you have space in your established working hours first.
