After fantastic results from the 2018 program, 30 Minutes a Month is back bigger and better than ever. Our trial run in 2018 went so well we’re bringing it back again in 2019, along with a host of changes in response to feedback from our 2018 participants.
At the end of the 2018 program, we surveyed participants and:
- 71% of respondents agreed or strongly agreed they could see how the activities would help future students.
- 71% of respondents agreed or strongly agreed they were likely to continue the program in 2019
But what is 30 Minutes a Month? It’s a program that focuses on retaining your connection with your University, and giving your wisdom back to students. Participants routinely complete small tasks (about 30 minutes’ worth, each month – hence the name) and are rewarded by prizes and the knowledge you’re helping out current and future students.
The program runs from March – November, and registrations are now open.
What’s new in 2019
In 2019 we are working to make the program easier to complete by:
- Simplifying our choice of activities – we give you one priority activity each month (goodbye decision fatigue). If you don’t want to complete this, you can choose from a handful of ‘standing activities’ – activities that are available to complete every month
- Offering better rewards
- Simplifying the rewards process – all activities are now worth the same amount of time, and you earn rewards based on how many months you complete (it’s okay if you miss a month – you will still be on your way to the next reward).
What activities will I be completing?
What rewards will I get?
In addition to feel-good-feelings knowing you’re assisting students, here are the rewards on offer.
If you’re interested in keeping up with your university, completing small tasks that will help future students, and raising your professional and online profile, this is the program for you! You can register for the program or find out more information.
