"Planning for Success: A Workshop for Faculty on How to be Productive & Have a Life Too"

Thu., Feb. 10, 2011, 12:00pm - 1:30pm
RSVP required by February 7
Location: Hall Center Seminar Room

This event is rescheduled from February 1. Space is still available; all those interested RSVP to hallcenter@ku.edu or 785-864-4798.

In this workshop, faculty will learn long and short term planning strategies that facilitate scholarly productivity and help relieve some of the stress associated with balancing work and life. Specifically, we will discuss how to 1) create a five-year plan based on your goals and institutional priorities; 2) design a feasible semester plan; 3) plan out each workweek; and 4) implement these plans on a daily basis through daily writing. The philosophy behind this workshop is that working smarter, not harder, is the key to balancing productivity and personal life.
