Studying on your commute

Why not devote a mentoring session to study skills with a focus on ‘studying on your commute’?

Janette Myers, a Learning Developer at St George’s, University of London, has written a #Take5 blog post highlighting how to make meaningful use of the time spend in trains, buses and tubes.

This seems important advice considering that commuters spend an average of 56 minutes travelling to work each day (see https://www.rsph.org.uk/our-work/policy/commuter-health.html). Commuting can be stressful with a negative impact on personal health and wellbeing (see https://www.nhs.uk/news/lifestyle-and-exercise/being-sick-of-the-daily-commute-could-be-affecting-your-health/) and hence strategies for ‘active commuting’ are needed to turn a possible negative into a ‘thing of joy’ (see https://www.theatlantic.com/business/archive/2016/03/a-mystery-the-people-who-enjoy-commuting/474138/).
