Increase your productivity by a factor of three. Write prose that participants report is clearer, better organized, and more compelling.

Even when you can’t work harder, there are important ways to work smarter.  Every scholar can become more prolific and these steps will show you how. Read more here.

Katie Terezakis

This event is part of the ongoing "Teachers on Teaching" series sponsored by Teaching and Learning Services

Dr. Katie Terezakis is an associate professor in the Department of Philosophy, College of Liberal Arts, and a recipient of the 2014-2015 Eisenhart Award for Outstanding Teaching.

People often describe their early teaching experience as a baptism by fire from which they still carry the marks. Recent approaches to the affective and metacognitive elements of teaching draw us back to techniques consistent with the reflective practices defined in traditional philosophies. For example, by the Socrates of Republic X, who details a procedure for regaining psychic balance when people and events disturb us, as inevitably they must, and, it turns out, as is necessary for coming to know much at all. Or by Aristotle, whose Ethics lay out the method for achieving one’s personal best in practices geared toward enunciating, for one’s intellectual community, the given action one decides to undertake. In fact, the promise of a mind coming to know itself in action is the principle that animates philosophy, so the need to communicate, verify, criticize, perform, and revise our judgments almost guarantees that philosophers will attempt to teach and will be schooled by their teaching.

In this discussion, I will highlight several initiatives in metacognitive research, foremost the link between metacognition and personal identity; the ability to manage conflicts in the learning environment; and the classroom as a microcosm for social and psychodynamic constructions. I will describe how some traditional philosophical tactics help to enrich and extend these proposals, and therefore how incorporating a philosophical angle in any discipline can help its professors to understand and help shape the ways that our teaching continually marks us.

Service work is an excellent way for faculty to familiarize yourself with the institution and allow you to become better known among your peers.  However, faculty often find it difficult to find the balance between too much service and not enough.  Often the reason new faculty take on too much service is the fear of saying no. This panel session will be facilitated by Dr. Laura Tubbs, Associate Dean in the College of Science and feature seasoned faculty who will share their tips on how and when to say no to service opportunities, being strategic about service assignments and finding that balance between teaching, scholarship and service.
