Loosely based on the book “Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less” by Greg McKeown, this talk will touch base on overcoming the obstacles faculty face as we are continually asked (or expect ourselves) to do more in our professional lives. The target audience for this ED talk is anybody — but especially faculty — who are currently working more than 40-45 hours/week and find this unsustainable.
Join Jennifer Bankers-Fulbright (Associate Professor of Biology) and Lyz Wendland (Assistant Professor of Art and Design) as they briefly share how they both, independently and using different strategies, created boundaries for themselves during Fall semester, worked 40-hour weeks, and applied McKeown’s lesson: “If you don’t prioritize your life, someone else will.”
CTL will offer ED Talks (based on the concept of TED Talks) before each faculty meeting from 3:10-3:30pm over Zoom (link provided below; Augsburg login required). This year’s theme is “The Future of the Professoriate at Augsburg”, and 2021-2022 Ed talks will be framed under this broad theme that speaks to our “new normal” and beyond.
