Why Teachers Are So Tired - 0 views

    Are you getting enough rest this summer? Are there decisions and worries you can deal with now so they don't wear you out next fall?

Our Fixation on Midcareer Malaise - 1 views

  •  
    "To be seen, valued, and included was a critical aspect of their career satisfaction and affected the degree of connection they felt to their campuses." Great article from Kenyon's Jan Thomas and her collaborators.

In Defense of the Lecture - 1 views

  •  
    A provocative essay with interesting ideas about the way we organize our time. Do current students have the active listening skills which the author seems to assume, and if not, are we doing enough to help them build those skills?

Academic Resolutions for 2017? - 0 views

  •  
    Like Anastasia Salter, I love making resolutions, and am resolutely bad at keeping them. I think her focus here makes a lot of sense, choosing habits which will be sustainable and support a sense of balance.

Teachers resilience: A necessary condition for effectiveness - 1 views

  •  
    The idea that resilience is a socially situated behavior, not a just personal quality, seems important, as does turning this lens (which we so often use on our students) on our own lives and work as educators.

Helping Professors Find Time to Think - 0 views

  •  
    How can the CIP help protect time for "quiet conversation and stillness of mind" without adding yet another darn thing to the calendar of events? (The success of this year's writing groups suggests one way...)

Summertime and the Learning is Easy - 0 views

  •  
    Might be some interesting questions for advisees or majors (or colleagues or yourself) in this podcast. What did you reflect on this summer? In between courses, can you see how they relate?

Do You Assign Enough Reading? Or Too Much? - 0 views

  •  
    "Faced with the question - How much reading should we assign? - I think most instructors would agree that the best answer is: "It depends."" One way to break the tyranny of "coverage" is to deeply consider your goals for how students will make meaning with the reading you assign.

Essay on how faculty members can keep focused amid so much disturbing news - 0 views

  •  
    "What if you decided that difficult times call for radical self-care? In other words, start with a basic assumption that your health is your top priority. Without it, nothing else is possible." Kerry Ann Rockquemore offers suggestions for maintaining your health in times of crisis.

The Sad, Beautiful Fact That We're All Going To Miss Almost Everything - 0 views

  •  
    It seems like everyone I talk to has well more than 3 months' worth of "summer projects." We talk about our overstuffed schedules. We even complain about depth vs. breadth and "coverage" in our courses and majors. Maybe the summer's not a bad time to consider a little productive surrender.

College libraries install desks on which students can study and cycle - 1 views

  •  
    The next step after the standing desk, perhaps? (Certainly I'd have a better chance keeping a desk that small clean...)

Less sleep makes you more likely to get a cold - 0 views

  •  
    Could more sleep stave off the Kenyon Krud?

Finding meaning in our work - 0 views

  •  
    Good discussion on this podcast of the issues of passion, meaning, and work-life balance for faculty. Also, I think, an interesting model for talking to students about our work, and our work histories.
