Taking the Temperature of Faculty and Staff: How Are You Doing?
Facilitators: Dave Parfitt (Teaching & Learning Center) and Laura Swanson (Student Health & Counseling)
Description: How are you, our faculty and staff colleagues, doing this semester? What are you seeing in and out of the classroom? While there have been efforts to help faculty and staff anticipate student needs, now that the semester is in full swing, we would like to explore how those needs are showing up in actuality, and how they are affecting you.
We invite you to participate in a TLC session designed to explore how you and your peers are doing in order to better understand your specific experiences. Please consider coming to one of these sessions to share, listen, and hopefully feel more connected to one another. We are offering two options for participation: in-person or Zoom, and we welcome you to select the option that you are most comfortable with.
Both sessions will cover the same topics, including: current faculty/staff experiences, unexpected challenges and rewards, and options for faculty/staff support. Information gathered in these sessions will guide future programming, as this is the first TLC session in a series we are calling Teaching for Wellbeing. This series will feature wellbeing-promoting practices to help faculty and staff apply techniques that support wellbeing and learning both in and out of the classroom.
