Burnout is a significant, ongoing challenge in higher education that affects the entire educational community (including students, faculty, instructors, support staff, and administrators). In a partnership between Alchemy (formerly O’Donnell Learn) and the Online Learning Consortium, this collaborative, two-day Foundry Day event will bring together institutional leaders for a series of constructive dialogues to consider strategies and challenges related to burnout. Questions we hope to consider 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 that provides actionable strategies for mitigating burnout in higher education. Participants will gain a richer, more diverse perspective on burnout and will contribute to the development of a key and actionable resource in the field. Please join us!
