In a disconcerting trend, a recent report reveals that faculty members have seen a staggering 15% increase in their duties between the spring and fall of 2023. This surge in responsibilities poses a significant threat to faculty wellbeing, paving the way for more burnout, disengagement, and a rise in turnover in the coming years. Faculty members aren’t the only ones affected either, as this has serious implications for student success as well.

Compounding the issue is the reality that faculty members often lack the additional resources necessary to cope with this escalating workload, a challenge heightened by the current climate of declining funding. Fortunately, there’s an emerging practical solution – Artificial Intelligence (AI) offers a cost-effective way to ease the workload burden on faculty and increases productivity.

  • A self-assessment tool to identify specific AI needs tailored to individual situations
  • Insights and recommendations on a mix of free and paid AI tools that can enhance efficiency and effectiveness in teaching, research, and service.

This is a valuable opportunity for faculty members to regain control over their time and workload. Gain access to a treasure trove of cost-effective resources, enabling them to navigate the challenges of modern academia while ensuring an unwavering commitment to delivering the best possible education to their students.
