Last year thesis writing was a very far event, nevertheless seeing my colleagues, spending most of the time on reading and writing it, impressed me greatly. I said to myself that I would manage the time and spend every suitable moment to read and write. The reality is different…
The first thing I ‘d like to advise is learn to make preferences in executing work duties as well as urgent issues. When you are responsible for a lot of things to do at work and do not have opportunity to look through the university mail, you have to choose the important and not very important affairs. Advice: look through the whole list of work, deadlines and make own calendar, but do not forget to look at it and follow it.
The second, leave the time to read and learn at home mostly than at work or do it at work during the break. The difficulty is to make yourself arrange time and strictly follow the deadlines.
Challenging questions for me are: time-managements and seeking for the articles for the literary review. During October and November I have to look for the readings twice. At first I found enough articles about team teaching, but there were no appropriate ones from the point of view of national and international teachers, working together. Majority of information was connected with team teaching in inclusive classrooms or in schools where migrant children study. Only last week I came across what I needed: research works reflecting the experience of Asian countries.
One more struggle is the APA-style, the more I try to follow it, the more problems I have, but again it maybe only my struggle with the time.
The thing to improve should be the time of deadlines, because one week is too short time to do tasks, the approximate time is 10 days.
