Course Introduction

Procrastination and poor time management are major threats to students’ academic success. To support a successful transition into the new academic year, participants will explore the roots of these challenges and gain a deeper grasp of psychological principles and practical strategies to overcome procrastination and enhance time management. This online course will be led by the Dennis Learning Center’s Senior Associate Director Dr. Lauren Hensley, whose research and teaching center on understanding and addressing procrastination. The course will be structured as a series of interactive online workshops in which participants learn about key principles and underlying research, apply ideas to their own contexts, and engage in both discussion-based and self-reflective activities. It will equip teachers, administrators, school counselors, and other personnel with an array of techniques for creating a motivating environment for learning, helping students improve their personal productivity, and applying time management to assignments and projects. Participants also will be introduced to apps, practices, and skills shown to be effective for self-awareness, self-management, and responsible decision-making—key elements of social and emotional learning that aid in battling procrastination and boosting time management.
