Short one this week as our kiddo oh-so-lovingly passed along some common daycare crud to me... just one week before I have to travel for a conference.
Between sniffles, here's what I'm working on.
Faculty Promotion Portfolio - This is over (for now) but I spent 20 solid hours writing and gathering evidence for my faculty promotion portfolio. As I mentioned on Friday, it was a HUGE frustration but rewarding in the end.
Slide Decks - Never again will I host two webinar series in a semester. One series is about navigating the information landscape directed towards students. The other is our teaching research series for faculty. This is one of the outcomes of our research assignment design project. Faculty are already teaching research and we want to help them do it effectively while relieving some of their teaching burden. Between those sessions and my four conference presentations, I'm living in PowerPoint. I am getting really sick of stock photos.
Financial Advisor Prep - We're going to meet with a financial advisor this week. It's our first time so we're doing a lot of prep work. That includes gathering documents and statements, filling out some questionnaires, and trying to figure out what, exactly, we want our money to do.
