Presented by Marisa James, MA, MLS(ASCP)CM
Bench instructors struggling with teaching fatigue. Students with multiple priorities, including a necessity for work-life balance. Overloaded curriculum. We will share how implementing a four-day work week in our hospital-based MLS program overcomes many of these challenges. Attendees will leave with several ideas they can immediately incorporate into their programs.


At the conclusion of this presentation, participants will be able to
  1. Identify strategies to reduce teaching fatigue in a Hospital-based Program
  2. Discuss different ways to help students and faculty succeed in achieving work-life balance
  3. Identify educational resources that can be used to increase student engagement
