Workshops

I am available to give on-campus professional development workshops for faculty, post-docs, and graduate students on work-life balance and academic success.

Here are the workshops I am currently offering:

Work/Life Balance Workshop: Get a Life, PhD

In this workshop, I explain how it is possible to both have a life and be a productive academic. Drawing from my own experience as well as research on creativity and productivity, I discuss how to balance research, teaching, and service as well as how to balance work and family obligations. Finally, I explain several ways academics can become more creative writers.

Faculty Development Workshop: Planning for Success

This workshop is designed to help academics fulfill their long-term vision by learning ways to connect everyday activities with an overall vision. Participants will learn how to envision their long-term success as well as make a concrete plan for achieving their career goals.

Either of these workshops lasts for two hours.

Cost
$3,000 per workshop plus travel expenses from my home in Merced, California.

I have given workshops at the University of Oregon, California State University - Los Angeles, the University of Hawai'i, Gustavus Adolphus College, the University of Kansas, Xavier University, the University of Denver, Illinois Wesleyan University, and the University of California, Merced.
