The right study rhythm improves learning results


Learning becomes more efficient when it is scheduled into smaller study moments instead of a long study period. This gives you more time to process information as well as more opportunities to return on the topic. Moreover, learning in smaller study moments make it easier and more flexible to schedule.

  • When you are building your study plan, it is better to spread the studies into several days and to alter between topics. This will make your studies more efficient and also help to concentrate.
  • Blended learning helps to divide learning activities for several days. You can complement classroom training with an online prerequisite material or some assignments that follow the on-site training session.
  • In the Pomodoro technique, after every 20 minutes of focused work, it is time for a short break. Leaving your desk regularly helps to stay focused.
  • An online course can be built from smaller modules that only take a brief moment to study. This makes it easy to study the whole course in small moments during several days.

The right working rhythm contributes to both efficiency and wellbeing. Regular brakes and sufficient diversity in tasks keep the work interesting.
