It can be easy to fall into the trap of focusing on the negatives in teaching—the day the room projector wouldn’t work, the student who complained about a grade, the class activity that didn’t go as planned. In this virtual conversation for faculty, we will discuss easy-to-use strategies to help you shift your focus to the more positive aspects of your teaching experience. For example, we will consider ways to encourage feelings of gratitude and awe, practice self-compassion, and reflect on your sense of purpose. These strategies can help prevent burnout and re-invigorate your excitement for teaching.
This event will take place via Zoom. A link to the Zoom session will be sent out with the reminder email the day before. If you have any questions, please contact Dr. Shaina Rowell, Assistant Director, The Center for Teaching and Learning.
