Title: Time Traveling, Cyborg Wizards: The Very Real Dangers of Academic Advising Work
Lead Presenter: Ryan Scheckel
Date: On-Demand
Room: On Demand
Abstract: Have you ever asked yourself, "What year is it?!," or exclaimed, "How can I do my job if the internet it down?!" Have you ever scoffed while being praised for the "magic" you've just worked (it was just information anyone can find online)? If you've been advising even for a little bit, we bet you've had at least one of these dissonant moments. Academic Advising work presents many challenges, not the least of which are the time, technology, and misunderstandings that inform our day-to-day. So how are time traveling cyborg wizards supposed to retain their humanity (or at least their compassion for humans) and not burn out, join us as we explore both pop culture and actual real science to find out!
