Gamify Your Study Routine

Game-based learning is an activity designed around game elements. An example of this learning method you may have seen here at Weber State is classroom-response systems such as TopHat, Poll Everywhere, and Kahoot. These programs provide a platform for group participation or activities for which students earn progress points. Read More

 Increase Motivation

  • Get started, motivation will catch up with you!
  • Give yourself some accountability! Tell your family, friends or even social media. Check-in regularly to show where you are in the process.
  • Blast that awesome playlist you've been working on to keep you going! Don't have one made yet, ask some friends to share theirs.
  • Now's the time to be a glass half full kind of person. Even if you're not naturally optimistic, try to reframe your thought process.
  • Create a little friendly competition with family, colleagues or friends! 
  • Remind yourself of your "Why," write it down, and put it somewhere you'll see it often.
