As a faculty member, what institutional pressures are you facing?
Do you feel that academia has become too corporatized? Is this affecting your performance?
The authors of The Slow Professor: Challenging the Culture of Speed in the Academy, Maggie Berg (Queen’s University) and Barbara K. Seeber (Brock University), will be at RIT on Friday, April 14, 2017, 11am-2pm. (See a review at: http://www.npr.org/sections/13.7/2016/05/12/477687350/resisting-the-corporate-university-what-it-means-to-be-a-slow-professor). After their presentation, there will be an open discussion and an interactive session over lunch. All faculty are welcome, and the first 50 will receive a free book along with a book signing.
