In this workshop we will look at tools that can help you overcome the common study barriers of procrastination and perfectionism using a range of apps and software that you can use at home. Come to this workshop to learn how the Pomodoro Technique can help you, as well as learning about apps to help you manage your tasks and your energy.

Procrastination often follows when we are not sure when or how to start a task, while perfectionism might creep in when we are not sure how or when to stop. We will look at tech tools to kick start your academic work in a solution-focused way.
