Free Time

Speaker: None
Host: Sam Guyer

Abstract

These days both faculty and students find themselves with much less time that they would like. The result is a stressed and overworked academic population. Our solution is to give everyone a free hour of time today at 3pm. The advantage of this approach is that is provides an hour that many people didn't think they had free. Rather than read email and do work during a talk, which is distracting to the speaker and the other attendees, people can do work in whatever setting they find most comfortable. Preliminary results from previous event cancellations indicate that most people appreciate the extra time.
