Mid-career faculty commonly describe a range of rank-specific challenges: time management, slow progress toward research goals and work-life balance. The Office of Research and Economic Development is hosting an April 24 workshop aimed at helping Nebraska faculty members overcome those issues and thrive.
“Writing Your Next Career Chapter: How to Find Your Mojo at Mid-career” is 9 a.m.-4 p.m. at Kauffman Academic Residential Center’s Great Hall, 630 N. 15th St. Registration is due April 22, as space is limited.
Presented by the National Center for Faculty Development and Diversity, this seminar will outline the most common issues mid-career faculty face, and provide participants with strategies for identifying where they are stuck and how to move forward in their intellectual projects. Participants will:
- Learn about the most common challenges during the mid-career stage.
- Identify the specific technical errors, psychological obstacles and external challenges holding them back.
- Create an individualized diagnostic plan to move forward.
