Burnout, a mental health syndrome caused by chronic workplace stress, is endemic to higher education in a patriarchal, productivity-obsessed culture. In this unique book for women in higher education, Rebecca Pope-Ruark, PhD, draws from her own burnout experience, as well as collected stories of faculty in various roles and career stages, interviews with coaches and educational developers, and extensive secondary research to address and mitigate burnout.
The Center for Faculty Excellence is hosting the Fall 2023 Resource Fair.

Please join us for a Grab 'N Go breakfast and learn what your colleagues are doing as we start another exciting academic year.
Join this workshop, idea exchange, and Q&A on creative ways to use the One Book, One University book as both a learning and listening tool.
PNW faculty, we are hosting two more technical workshops to help you implement the Instructional Materials Access program for your courses.
This workshop discusses and demonstrates teaching techniques that can be used in the first week of the semester to create a more inclusive and effective learning environment that fosters the creation of co-constructed learning norms and rules for course engagement.
In a book written by and for college teachers, Kelly Hogan and Viji Sathy provide tips and advice on how to make all students feel welcome and included. They begin with a framework describing why explicit attention to structure enhances inclusiveness in both course design and interactions with and between students. Inclusive Teaching then provides practical ways to include more voices in a series of contexts: when giving instructions for group work and class activities, holding office hours, communicating with students, and more. The authors finish with an opportunity for the reader to reflect on what evidence to include in a teaching dossier that demonstrates inclusive practices.
A Writing Retreat provides a focused block of time and supportive environment for you to commit to and have some level of accountability for accomplishing a research goal. There will be no planned programming, instead it will be a time for you to focus on your research/writing goals and hopefully be very productive! There will be three offerings this semester with all being offered virtually. A link to the event will be sent after registration.
The purpose of the Purdue System-Wide Forum 2023 is to debate the opportunities and challenges and think of strategic ways to lead the conversation on AI and its current as well as future trajectories.

Do you need to set aside time to work on your research? Or do you have other work you need to complete? Perhaps completing a task for a research project, grading, recording/creating course content, reading? Would having some focused time to work on it help?
If so, sign-up to participate in the Work Sprint! A Work Sprint provides a focused block of time and supportive environment for you to commit to and have some level of accountability for accomplishing a task-specific goal.
