We are pulled in multiple directions with increasing demands for our time and attention. Without a game plan, confusion, procrastination and “busy work” dominate over moving toward higher goals. Research from psychology can provide effective strategies to choose priorities that separate signal from noise, focus attention to engage in deep work, and develop habits that invest limited resources on what really matters. In this workshop we will (1) explore how understanding the cognitive architecture of the mind leads to developing a working plan to handle daily challenges with optimized solutions; (2) develop a culture for productivity that promotes deep work; and (3) learn about tools to integrate into workflows to shift our resources to important tasks that include strategic planning.

Part of Teaching and Learning Month:

Join us as our 2024 Teaching and Learning Month with several sessions facilitated by Dr. Joe Kim.  This  series will offer an opportunity to focus on your teaching as well as your personal well-being.  Lunch will be provided to allow participants time to connect with colleagues from across the university.
