The Fridge and Self Management

The Fridge is a website for university students which taps into the notion of self-management, which is the capacity to work effectively toward meaningful goals, and to be flexible in the face of setbacks (Cranney, Nithy et al., in prep). It has videos, worksheets and other resources that reflect evidence-based strategies to improve time, motivation, and well-being management.

Listed below are some ways in which educators can use the Fridge. Moreover, there are more general strategies for integrating self-management development strategies into mainstream courses.

See also the outline of a course entirely devoted to the science of student success (i.e., a focus on self-management--part of which is resilience, part of which is effective planning to obtain meaningful goals).



Self-Management Manual

This manual is primarily intended for undergraduate course coordinators, head tutors, and higher education well-being officers who wish to integrate self-management activities into the curriculum of their courses (= units, modules, subjects) or into their extracurricular programs. The target population is undergraduate students, although these strategies can also benefit high school students, postgraduate students, and any adult or emerging adult!
