Burned Out: Stories Of Compassion Fatigue
Pre-Conference Workshop Session 1
Learning designers are critical to the success of the digital transformation of higher education. This session is designed to support learning designers who have led the charge during COVID to support their campus in the transition to emergency remote teaching and so much more. How do we make use of the momentum gained during COVID times and advance the field of learning design in a thoughtful way? This workshop will allow us to ideate on what’s next for the field.
After a conversation related to the article Burned Out: Stories of Compassion Fatigue authored by the co-presenters, we will engage in an interactive workshop of reflection, problem definition, and solution design.
Participants will be able to:
- Explain the elements of compassion fatigue and burnout, and how it is experienced by those in the learning design field.
- Identify what factors support or hinder work-life balance.
- Apply findings to both compassion fatigue and burnout that is experienced by learning designers and other staff that supported the pivot to online learning.
