Sign up as a team captain and register at least two players on your team by this FridayMarch 31st , and get a mini wireless speaker, pedometer, and a pair of HeartChase sunglasses at the invitation-only Kick-off Luncheon on Date TBD. Plus, you’ll be entered for a chance to win a $25 Walmart Gift Card at the luncheon, too! If you are located in a branch campus we will arrange a lunch for that campus as well or provide a lunch gift card if we reach our goal of 10 teams from Mount Aloysius College!

We’d like at least 10 employees to assemble teams of 3-5 co-workers, friends, and family members of all ages!

It takes less than five minutes to sign up. What are you waiting for?

Tending the Academic Fire: Enhancing Motivation to Educate
Long hours of preparation and seemingly endless grading in isolation, dwindling enthusiasm and drive of those around you, progressively mounting demands on your already limited time, and many other realities of being an instructor may erode your energy and focus on your primary responsibility and professional passion: teaching. Come to either or both sessions to assess your current motivation level, learn ways to identify early warning signs of waning motivation, share your experiences, and develop a practical, individualized plan for improvement. (There will also be chocolate.)
Presented by Dr. Virginia Gonsman and Dr. Mary Shuttlesworth
