How to pick a project worth pursuing: 1. Interest: do you think about it in your free time and bring it up in random conversations? 2. Importance: if we understood it, would the world be a better place? 3. Contribution: do you have something novel to add?

Infographics on things to keep in mind when creating inclusive content (from homeoffice UK). I probably do most of these wrong, but I will do better moving forward These and more posters can be accessed here:

In any field, but esp. academia, it is easy to feel inadequate as others announce new books, articles, awards & speaking gigs. Always run your own race & compare yourself to no one. Stay focused on the projects that interest you & do your best work! You got this

I'm starting as an Assistant Professor tomorrow! I'm simultaneously elated and low key worried I'm going to miss a million things I should (or should not!) be doing. Any advice ?

Recording a quick litigation overview lecture for my class and this is happening in the background. Ironic? Tragic? Harbinger of the semester?

You have to take a gap year... You mustn't take a gap year... You need to finish your Master's... You shouldn't do a Master's... You should do it when you're young... No. The only thing you need to do, is to do what's right for you!🙌

I see a lot of posts about how doing a PhD inevitably results in mood disorders, depression, needing counselling, etc. Is there ANYONE out there who completed a doctorate with mental health (relatively) intact? Or is that a pipe dream?

- "PhD student" can have a negative association, and not accurate across PhD programs - "PhD candidate" is confusing since programs use it differently - "PhD researcher" could include PhD holders 👉Suggested new terminology: doctor + mentee = doctee

This hybrid where 1/2 of class comes one day, 1/2 another, & then works online for the 2nd day is the worst of in-person & online teaching. What creative ways are you handling it? Alternatives to discussion boards? This is for lit, writing, & Eng Ed courses

Those of you who are not penalizing absences this fall, how did you include "attendance and participation" in your grade breakdown? I don't want to penalize, but also want to encourage attendance and participation.
