Five ways to wellbeing this Christmas season

Studying over Christmas: time management

  • Key skills – making a difference – This free course includes a section to develop good work habits and time-management practices, including ten tips to help you look at your time management.
  • Developing your skills as an HR professional – This free course includes a section where you will read more about strategies for reducing stress at work through organising yourself, managing your time and developing stress-prevention mechanisms.

Studying over Christmas: when things get harder

  • AA100 Study Companion, Section 2 – This section of the AA100 Study Companion contains lots of helpful advice on study skills. In particular, Section 2.2 (pp. 23–8) talks about time management.
  • Essay and report-writing skills – Writing reports and assignments can be a daunting prospect. Learn how to interpret questions and how to plan, structure and write your assignment or report. This free course, Essay and report-writing skills, is designed to help you develop the skills you need to write effectively for academic purposes.
  • Extending and developing your thinking skills – Diagrams, mind-maps, tables, graphs, time lines, flow charts, sequence diagrams, decision trees: all can be used to organise thought. This free course, Extending and developing your thinking skills, will introduce you to a variety of thinking skills.
  • Reading and note taking – preparation for study – Reading and note taking are two essential study skills. How do you read? This free course, Reading and note taking – preparation for study, will introduce you to different techniques to help you to alter the way you read according to the type of material you are studying. You will also learn the techniques behind successful note taking and how to apply them to your own notes.
  • Paraphrasing text – In this free course you will focus on the process of turning what you are reading into ‘your own words’, which is an essential skill at university.
  • What is good writing? – Does the idea of essay writing put you off the idea of studying? This free course, What is good writing?, will help you to realise that essays are not to be feared. You will learn how important it is to answer the question that is set and that your style of writing is as communicative as possible.

Rediscovering the meaning of religious festivals

  • Christmas Podmag – In this 17-minute audio, Paul-François Tremlett talks about Christmas.
  • Exploring religion in London – Take a guided tour round seven of London’s principal religious buildings in full 360° detail.
  • 60-Second adventures in religion – Ever wondered why Karl Marx thought religion was like opium, or whether religion is possible without a god? Voiced by David Mitchell, this series of four 60-second animations examines different ways that religion has been viewed by non-religious thinkers.
  • Studying religion – This free course gives you an opportunity to think about some of the key concepts and methods of the discipline of Religious Studies. You will meet examples of different forms of religious practice and belief, mostly from Britain and India.
  • Introducing religions – These podcasts offer an introduction to the study of religions, and in particular to six major religions: Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism and Sikhism, including the various roles of their founders and leaders, and their texts, rituals, practices and behaviours. This practical insight will enable you to develop a better understanding of different beliefs and worldviews and what these mean to their adherents.
  • Religion today: themes and issues – There is a widespread perception in the West that we live in a secular age, an age in which religion is at best an optional extra, if not a false delusion completely out of place. However, religion still arouses passion and causes controversy; it controls and transforms lives. An informed understanding of the contemporary world thus requires an appreciation of the role of religion in shaping ideas, world-views and actions that have an impact on the social as well as on the personal life of the individual. This free course gives you a glimpse into this fascinating area.
