The 24/7 Professor--What to Do When Home Is Just Another Word for the Office
Fogg, Piper
Chronicle of Higher Education, v54 n21 pB12 Feb 2008
Technology has revolutionized the way professors work. With just a few keystrokes, they can gain access to vast library collections online. They can collaborate with peers halfway around the globe. They can read e-mail at home in their pajamas or at a research site thousands of miles away. The convenience of being able to work virtually anywhere and anytime, though, has a price. Students accustomed to instant messaging want immediate replies. Department heads know that faculty members can still check in online despite attending a conference three states away. So how do scholars find time to think, write, or just recharge their cluttered brains? How do they maintain a personal life when work is so consuming? What can they do to set priorities? In this article, several professors discuss their strategies for finding that balance.
