Get Stuff Done -study sessions: weekly (Online)

  • Does it feel challenging to grab your books, stay focused or study independently? To support independent studying, the Get Stuff Done! -study sessions are organised by TAMK and Tampere University. The Get Stuff Done! sessions utilise the Pomodoro study technique. The sessions last approx. 2 hours, which includes three runs (25 minutes intensive studying, 5 minutes rest). In the sessions, you will study independently with a staff member timing your work and breaks. You can come along to, for example, read for an exam, write your study diary, do research for a thesis or compose an essay. You don't have to open your camera or microphone during the session. If the technique is not familiar to you, don’t worry, as we will introduce its basics at the start of each session. The sessions are open to all students from Tampere University and TAMK. The meetings are bilingual.
