Today I attended a faculty conference. I learned for this first time about this video about today's students:
This shows the challenge we are facing in higher education.
I presented a workshop on the research associated with students' attendance in college classes. I'm glad to have it done. Now all I have to do is revise two courses before fall semester and invent a totally new course. This is on top of all the regular work associated with teaching 3 courses and serving on 3 university committees which actually require a lot of work, way beyond just showing up once a month and talking, serving a department chair, and serving as chair of the admissions committee. And people think faculty don't work.
