February 19, 2021: AVOIDING TEACHING BURNOUTS
Dear CNS Instructors,
Wow, a third of the way through what I hope is the last semester teaching during a pandemic. For this week’s teaching tip, I am re-tweeting a tip from Tom Dunn, the CLA MTI Coordinator. I looked up some additional articles addressing Avoiding Teacher Burnout that I found in the Faculty Focus. This week was fairly stressful for me. I am feeling a bit behind on my grading and other non-teaching projects and my email client decided it does not like to play nice with the Exchange server. I could make my life easier by just focusing on what I must do and not take on other projects. On the flip side, these other projects and collaborations are really what keep me going. The key is to find some sort of balance, especially with non-work relationships and endeavors. I hope I get there before I die.
