From Burning Out to Burning Brightly

Event Date & Time

Event Description

Faculty burnout is not a novel symptom of the pandemic, but has certainly intensified because of it. This session will back you up. Drawing inspiration from a video that uses the metaphor of a burning candle, participants will engage in a belonging conversation about faculty’s lived experience, and work together to develop innovative ideas that move your candle from burning out to burning brightly. Easy-to-practice strategies and navigation of relevant resources are integrated into the session.
