Class Notes:
Course Topic: Understanding and Addressing Burnout: Fostering Meaningful and Sustainable Careers Class will be offered REMOTE (synchronously online during the scheduled time). We spend most of our waking hours for the majority of our adult lives at work. Not surprisingly, people are increasingly demanding work that is engaging and meaningful. Simultaneously, research demonstrates that when people find their work meaningful, they are more likely to undergo personal sacrifices and engage in practices that result in burnout. This seminar-style course will help you: *understand the phenomenon of burnout and why it is increasingly prevalent; *develop practices that facilitate your ability to thrive in a career that is personally meaningful and personally sustainable; *examine organizational and institutional strategies that address burnout, underscoring the systemic nature of the phenomenon. Deliverables include weekly analytical memos engaging with the learning materials, exercises that apply the learning materials, brief daily reflections that assist in developing burnout prevention practices, and a narrative essay at the end of the course.
