Burnout is a significant, ongoing challenge in higher education that affects the entire educational community. Faculty in particular are managing the increased demands associated with teaching in multiple formats and meeting the evolving needs of today’s learners. In a partnership between Alchemy (formerly O’Donnell Learn) and the Online Learning Consortium, this collaborative Foundry Day event will bring together institutional leaders for a series of informative sessions and constructive dialogues to consider strategies to mitigate burnout. Questions we will explore include:
- What are institutions currently doing to address burnout?
- How do we create institutional cultures that minimize burnout?
- How do we break the cycle of increased workload and expectations that lead to burnout?
This event will lay the foundation for the development of an open framework for creating a culture that minimizes burnout in higher education. Participants will leave this session with actionable strategies that can be immediately implemented on their campus and will contribute to the development of an important and actionable resource for leaders across higher education.
