FALL 2022 RIHETC WORKSHOPS

Following are scheduled Workshops hosted by
Rhode Island Higher Education Training Consortium.

Wednesday, October 26th . . . 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Location:  Rhode Island College, 600 Mount Pleasant Avenue, Providence - Gaige Hall, Room 200

We cannot deny that the world has changed during the past 2-3 years. Isolation has taken over the daily connections at work and schools for almost everyone.  Now that we are returning to the world of daily interactions, what are we supposed to do with our experiences of the past few years? Do we try to carry on as if nothing has happened? As if nothing has changed? This is probably not the most psychologically healthy way to recover from our collective experiences.

This workshop is a chance to share our individual experiences and perhaps learn from our collective wisdom on how we cannot get stuck or lost in these experiences and move forward in a positive manner. Attendees should be willing to share without judgments.

Proposed Session Objectives:

* Attendees will learn to explore their feelings of isolation over the past few years in a supportive group and understand that they are not alone with them.

* Attendees may find it easier to be back in the workplace learning they can share their experiences with co-workers without any judgment.

* Attendees will understand that it is okay to share concerns and feelings with others about the isolation and world experiences of the past two years.

Managing calendars has become a challenge for everyone. Regardless of what techniques we implement, there never seems to be enough hours in a day. The result is a feeling of stress, frustration and loss of control. As a professional, effective time management can lead to burn-out, loss of productivity and engagement challenges.

This workshop is designed to provide you with specific suggestions that will allow you to:

* Have a better understanding of where you spend your time.

* Understand the tie between daily and weekly planning.

* Enhance your ability to apply critical thinking concepts to managing tasks.

* Help you manage multiple priorities effectively.

This workshop will provide you with techniques to stay focused on what’s important day-to-day and week-to-week. We will also discuss specific tactics to managing high priority tasks, while also taking a longer term view of managing your goals and staying balanced.
