Social Jetlag, Chronotypes, & Performance

About This Webinar

We analyzed two years of learning management system login events for 14,894 Northeastern Illinois University students to investigate the interaction of social jetlag, chronotype, and academic performance. These data reveal that a majority of students experience more than 30 minutes of SJL on average, with greater amplitude correlated strongly with a significant decrease in academic performance, especially in people with later chronotypes. Understanding these interactions will help individuals more effectively schedule their time to maximize academic performance to the benefit of individual students and the universities they attend. In this webinar, we will define social jet lag, further discuss the research behind individual chronotypes, and address the real world implications for how these can impact performance.
