Do you ever struggle with burnout—or worry that you might someday face it? Do you sometimes feel guilty about not getting as much research done in the summer as you planned, only to return to intensive teaching commitments in the fall? Do you desire to recover the sense of joy and vocation that drew you to academic teaching? Led by Dr. Christina Bieber Lake, author of The Flourishing Teacher, this faculty workshop will support you in recovering a sense of vocation, managing time, and laying plans to flourish in the classroom and in your research. All faculty are welcome, and lunch will be provided for those who RSVP.
