  • Dr. Susan Robison Addressing Faculty at IUP, 4


    The Center for Teaching Excellence was pleased to host nationally recognized, Dr. Susan Robison on the IUP campus to conduct this workshop on Saturday, September 16, 2017.

    In addition to the Center for Teaching Excellence, this program is supported by the Office of the Provost, the College of Education and Communications, the College of Humanities and Social Sciences, the College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics, and the School of Graduate Studies and Research.

    Workshop Description:

    The transition from the end of one year to the start of another is a good time to pause to evaluate how the previous year has gone and how make the coming year even better. This time management workshop goes beyond a series of tips to give you principles and strategies for making this your best year ever.

    What you will learn how to:

    • Anchor a Best Year Theme to your overarching mission and purpose.
    • Review the successes and frustrations of the previous year and forecast the successes and frustrations of the coming year.
    • Align all of your tasks and activities with a vision about your career and your life that will give you more work-life balance and productivity.  

    As a result, you will:

    • Power your work with energy by designing Great Work, work that flows easily from a deep sense of meaning and purpose.
    • Decide more easily what tasks are worthy of your time and energy instead of wandering from task to task. 
    • Procrastinate creatively so you can prioritize time, energy, and space for professional activities including research and writing.
    • Construct to-do lists that are realistic and achievable.
    • Create accountability strategies to keep you on track in all spheres, professional and personal, all in one place.
