YCP Summer "Get It Done" -- Collaborative Working at Home--Together
What? Set aside each Thursday to show up in a virtual space to work on unfinished projects of any kind--teaching, research, writing, service, planning. You may also choose to participate in a lunch discussion and to enjoy a happy hour to connect with colleagues and share about life.
Why? If you are missing your colleagues--saying hello at the start or end of the workday, talking over lunch discussions, and working while knowing colleagues are also working can reduce isolation feelings. If you want some focus and accountability--planning for the time can help with productivity; setting daily goals and listing tasks can help you attend to what is most important, checking in with colleagues can increase feelings of accomplishment.
How? Zoom, of course. But we also have a website where you can log your goals and daily tasks.
When? Thursdays starting at 10 a.m. (see schedule below) throughout most of the summer. The schedule is on the webpage (Links to an external site.)
Who? Faculty, staff, and administrators--anyone who wants to get things done. We will all be working on different things, at the same time. It will be like a virtual campus where we each work in a separate space on our own tasks but can check in with each other.
Commitment? Nope! The schedule is modular, so come to any or all days and/or sessions...just the morning meeting, or just the happy hour, or even just a specific date--whatever would benefit you!
