Finding and Protecting Your Time: Intellectual Self-Care for Faculty

In this session, Allison Adams, Associate Director for Programs in Scholarly Writing and Research at the Center for Faculty Development and Excellence, Emory University, will lead faculty through strategies for carving out and making the most of time for thinking and writing. Even small shifts in habits and mindset can be transformative—for the individual faculty member as well as the larger intellectual community.

Showcase Session (open to all faculty and staff)

No time to innovate?  Choose four pedagogical techniques to “speed date” and consider for your classroom. 

In this round-robin style session, participants will choose four tables to visit to learn about an innovative tool or technique to try in their own classrooms and online course environments.  Learn about things like the ILC Template for USAonline courses, creating transparent assignments, interleaving of course content to increase student learning, making content accessible, designing clicker questions and others. Participants will leave with ideas and content handouts from each of the tables they visit.
