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.
