From Isolation to Reconnection... A Biopsychosocial perspective on how to revitalize our joy in the workplace.

This discussion oriented workshop will focus on the importance of understanding how to reconnect to our why and to each other in what has increasingly become a very isolating workplace for many of us and our students during this ongoing pandemic. Research will be presented with a biopsychosocial lens and participants will be encouraged to connect the research directly to their own temperaments and experiences with the goal of discovering effective strategies to help continue to nurture or reawaken their passion for teaching.
