Resilience in Academia

Date:  May 5, 2021  (1200 pm – 100 pm)   *All times indicated are Eastern.

This program comes at a crucial time when faculty, staff, and students have finished a difficult term, mostly delivered online.  While many have adjusted to online and distant delivery, learning, and research, challenges remain that can test us – our patience, ability to be collaborative and engaged, and of course, our ability to cope.

Join Hayley Hesseln, PhD for this one-hour webinar which examines key emotional qualities that enhance or undermine resilience and adaptability in an academic setting. We present three important aspects of hardiness including challenge, control, and commitment, and discuss their importance in promoting resiliency within an academic setting.  We also present reliable strategies to improve your resilience and to help your students.

Learning outcomes:

  • Identify factors that affect resilience
  • Develop strategies to promote hardiness
  • Implement practices that enhance personal and professional resilience

We will present the research and facts related to hardiness during the first 20 minutes, followed by 25 minutes exploring strategies and exercises, with a 15-minute Q & A at the end.  The program is interactive, and we invite participation throughout the presentation.

What you will receive:

  • Slide deck handout with references
  • Exercise booklet for each participant
