Dr. Marianne Lloyd reflects on The Educational Vocation and Authenticity: Let Your Life Speak (Even in Meetings and Lectures) in the first of four retreats for faculty and administrators of all faiths. The Heart of the University Retreat Series gives faculty and administrators of all faiths the opportunity for input and guided reflection. The series is co-sponsored by the Office of Mission and Ministry, and the Center for Vocation and Servant Leadership.
The first retreat, given by Dr. Marianne Lloyd on the theme of The Educational Vocation and Authenticity: Let Your Life Speak (Even in Meetings and Lectures) will be held on Tuesday, October 2, 2018, from 9 to 11 a.m. in the Chancellor's Suite in the University Center.
Reading professional development advice can lead one to believe it's about landing somewhere on a series of dichotomies. Are you skill based or content driven? Are you student or material centered? What I've yet to see is a suggestion that there's also a choice between authentic and inauthentic work. Drawing primarily from spiritual sources during this retreat, we'll explore where we fall on this continuum of authenticity and consider if there is somewhere else we would like to head.
Marianne E. Lloyd, PhD has been a faculty member in the Psychology Department since 2006. She is particularly interested in using what we know about memory to improve teaching, student performance, and faith development.
