15 Time Management Strategies for the Busy Engaging Instructor


Do you find yourself challenged by the amount of time you dedicate to managing your engaging remote and mixed-mode courses? This session will explore the time management challenges that remote faculty have faced while teaching engaging courses. For each challenge there will be techniques shared for managing time more wisely, so you can minimize stress and improve the quality of your course. The session will conclude on how to tailor a time management student template that, in turn, streamlines student questions, grading, and more.
