5 Bits of Advice About: Saving time

  1. If post does not have your name on it, it will be generic and not specifically for you. Bin it, don’t waste time reading it.
  2. Save everything. Have a hard drive with all of your resources and lesson ppts saved for tweaking in the future, instead of recreating them from scratch.
  3. Network. Other staff in your department/other schools will have great resources/ideas that will save you time as long as you can do the same for them.
  4. Be organised. Keep your desk clear and deal with all paperwork as it comes in – file, action or bin. Then you won’t waste time searching for things.
  5. Plan your marking. If you know what piece you are marking in detail you can focus on that, rather than marking books in a general way, which often takes more time.
