SLMTA 3 E-Learning Course Download Video
A calendar is an essential management tool for planning and organizing lab tasks. In this activity, participants learn to create and use a calendar to schedule, coordinate, balance, and prioritize lab activities.
A calendar serves as a visual reminder of all important duties/tasks and their timelines. It is also a planning tool with which to distribute critical lab tasks evenly across coming weeks, months, quarters, etc. in a timely manner.
- For the calendar to be an effective tool, it must be kept up-to-date.
If a task is important and must be completed, then the task must be assigned and scheduled onto the calendar.
- Populate the calendar appropriately?
- Use the calendar to schedule, coordinate, balance, and prioritize lab activities?
