Faculty must juggle competing demands of scholarship, teaching, and service. Maintaining work-‐life balance requires effective use of limited time. A BGSU faculty learning community formed to identify and explore efficiency practices, while developing accountability for implementing them. During this interactive roundtable, we will share experiences and tips: batching email and removing notifications, developing hyper-‐ detailed calendars, protecting writing time, capturing “useless” downtime, assessing tasks based on importance and urgency, creating a social support system, and learning when and how to say no. An important lesson is that time management tools are not “one-‐size-‐fits-‐all,” and particular techniques resonate more with individual faculty.
