Setting SMART Goals for Your Online Education Experience SMART Goals for Your Online Education Experience2022-07-26T12:00:00Z,<div class="ExternalClassF23036A4A05D48F4A753D5CDE7017A7B"><strong>Setting SMART Goals for Your Online Education Experience </strong><br> <strong>By Tracey Ramey, </strong><a href=""><em>American Public University</em></a><br> <br> Having a clear understanding of your personal goals creates a foundation for what you’re ultimately trying to accomplish in life. Similarly, as you progress through your academic journey, it’s important to regularly reflect on your short- and long-term goals.<br> However, it is first necessary to create a list of the objectives you want to reach. One helpful way to build those goals for your academic journey is to remember the SMART acronym – Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic and Timely.<br> <strong>5 Tips for Setting SMART Goals</strong><br> Setting SMART goals requires some self-reflection. Here are five tips to consider: <ol> <li>Be <strong>specific</strong> regarding your goals. Consider the “who, what, why and how” surrounding a goal. Who needs to be involved? What do you want to achieve? Why is this goal important to you? How can you accomplish it?</li> <li>To stay organized, devise a concrete way to <strong>measure</strong> your progress. Think about what methods you can use to track your progress. For instance, you can use a calendar or set up a reward system for celebrating when you achieve certain academic objectives.</li> <li>Create <strong>achievable</strong> goals. You want to be able to celebrate your accomplishments, so consider if the goal you have created is possible given the time you have. It could mean carving out extra time for a goal you are very passionate about or setting smaller, mini-goals that you’re sure you can accomplish.</li> <li>Be honest with yourself and think about <strong>realistic</strong> goals. Goals do not have to be easy, but they should be achievable. Be sure you have the skillset and resources that you’ll need to meet your goals. Don’t try to meet those goals when your life is unusually busy and you’re stressed; you want to set yourself up for success, not failure.</li> <li>As an adult learner, you face multiple responsibilities. Ensure you have built <strong>timely </strong>goals that have clearly defined target dates. Also, be sure you have enough free time available in your life to achieve your goals.</li> </ol> <br> As you progress through your academic journey and through life, remember to revisit your goals on a regular basis. Sometimes, those goals might need some extra tweaking if unexpected events come up in your life.<br> <strong>Are you ready to take the first step? </strong><a href=""><strong>Learn how American Public University and DAU are partners</strong></a><strong> in supporting your forward momentum by providing an opportunity to earn an affordable, career-relevant degree quickly by applying transfer credit. </strong><br> <strong><em>About the Author: </em></strong><br> <em>Tracee Ramey has been with </em><a href=""><em>American Public University</em></a><em> since 2007, holding various positions such as Learning Outcomes Assessment Specialist, Student Affairs Coordinator and Commencement Coordinator.
