Resisting Academic Busyness and Taking Weekends Off

by | Apr 22, 2019

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.

In this webinar, Dr. Kate Drabinski discusses strategies for resisting the call for academic busyness and its demand that we be constantly productive.  Watch to figure out what really needs to get done—and what doesn’t—and how to take weekends off from work for good.
