Faculty Burnout and Stress
There is the growing stack of papers to grade, the lectures to prepare for, and the endless drafts of scholarships for publication.
No wonder many faculty members at college and university campuses teaching face-to-face today struggle with burnout and excessive stress.
But help is available.
Stress can be identified, addressed and prevented.
In this Magna 20-Minute Mentor, Brian Van Brunt, Ed.D., describes valuable approaches for recognizing and addressing faculty burnout and stress.
During this 20 minute faculty development program, you will:
- Have a better understanding of the difference between normal stress and burnout.
- Learn the cost of burnout–for the individual and the academic department.
- Learn the five core concepts to create a life in balance.
- Learn how early family messages may impact attitudes later in life toward work and stress.
- You also learn ways to begin the change process:
- This will include a discussion of how to overcome “stuck” habits
- How to begin making small, measurable changes that can lead to larger improvements.
The program also includes the following supplemental materials: a description of the signs of stress, recommendations for prevention and for taking the first steps toward change, a case study, questions for reflection, and recommended resources.
At the conclusion of this program, you will:
- Overcome “stuck” habits and begin to look at ways to start small changes that lead to large improvements.
- Set better boundaries between work and home.
- Avoid isolation by selectively increasing interaction with colleagues.
- Effectively schedule “re-charge” times during your day.
