Office Hours: Legitmizing Burnout in Open Education Roles

Topic: Legitimizing Burnout in Open Education Roles
When: 2022-08-25T19:00:00Z2022-08-25T20:00:00Z
Guests: Jess Mitchell (Senior Manager, Research + Design, IDRC) , Lisa Petrides (CEO and Founder, ISKME), Angelique Carson (Shared Collections Librarian, Washington Research Library Consortium), and Douglas P. Kennedy (Assistant Professor, Integrative Health & Wellbeing Research Program, Earl E. Bakken Center for Spirituality & Healing, University of Minnesota).

At this Office Hours session, we will reflect on our roles in open education and in the larger higher education structure as many of us prepare for a new academic year ahead. How do we approach the oft repeated lament that we must “do more with less”? What does that even mean, in terms of our health and the health of our systems and society? And how can we approach these questions while acknowledging the reality of burnout that has affected many in our field? Together, we’ll explore what burnout looks like in our daily lives, where it comes from, and how we can support one another, as human beings, as we build better systems. Our guest speakers will discuss humanizing education, meaningful systemic change, and strategies for being a supportive and ethical colleague and manager.

Thank you to our guests for your vulnerability and for sharing your stories and sharing your perspectives on this topic with us!

I’m super interested in this, but will have doctoral residency meetings during this time - will it be recorded? Thanks!

Hi there! Not to worry - sessions are recorded and this post will be updated with both the video and transcript not long after the session. Take care! :slightly_smiling_face:
