The Emotional Labour of Teaching & Learning

Schedule: Friday, December 06, 2019, 09:30 AM – 11:00 AM
Location: McPherson Lounge
Instructors: Erica Stevens Abbitt, Christie Stewart

What are the personal costs – the emotional and physical demands –of teaching and learning? Is it possible to be an excellent educator without suffering burnout? How can we learn to thrive in a time of precarity and limited resources? Where do we find resources to nourish our own intellectual development, meet career goals, serve student needs and still have a personal life? Are there ways we can develop networks and resources within the academy to support our lives and work?

This participatory workshop will identify the often “invisible” issues which shape our lives in the professoriat – from time management, emotional resilience, stress, work-life balance, job security, to ever-changing student expectations.

It will include a brief presentation on current research on the issues, participatory exercises, break-out discussions and an exchange of information and resources. The goal is to establish an ongoing network of support and identify issues to explore more fully in future CTL workshops.

Immediately following this workshop will be a chance to have some relaxation time and gather resources that will help you through the month. Don’t forget to register for the second session in order to take part.
