Academics are so busy. We’ve got meetings, class prep, grading, and teaching, not to mention the research and writing that often feels like the only stuff that counts as we build our careers. Increasing calls to take our work public add another layer of busy. And then there’s the part where we are also human and need to cook, clean, sleep, and care for ourselves and others. It can be overwhelming, especially when “busyness” itself becomes something our colleagues brag about. Is this really a contest we want to win? How can we think differently about academic busyness and get our weekends back?

In this month’s free Ideas on Fire webinar, Dr. Kate Drabinski will discuss strategies for resisting the call for academic busyness and its demand that we be constantly productive.  Join us to figure out what really needs to get done—and what doesn’t—and how to take weekends off from work for good.

This webinar is FREE and open to the public.
