Abstract

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused a host of personal and professional complications for faculty across academia, as well as the students they teach.  While the severity of these complications vary at the individual level and look different for everyone, one area COVID-19 has presented enormous challenges in academia is time management.  Both faculty and students have been forced to adjust their schedules due to consequences of the pandemic (this includes school and university closures, employment issues, and even the virus itself). Such changes create major challenges for both groups, particularly those converting traditional daytime face-to-face courses into online and hybrid formats.  This paper offers three specific techniques to facilitate time management: asynchronous teaching, chunking, and micro-learning.  Research findings have led to the support for each of these techniques.  The authors explain how each technique facilitates time management via remote and online teaching, and make suggestions about each technique in their own courses to contextualize their usage.  Recommendations are also noted, with the goal of enabling faculty to preserve one of their and their students’ resources during and after a pandemic: time.
