Recognizing and Supporting Affective Labor

Tuesday, March 15 | 8:30AM–9:15AM ET | Room 551
Session Type: Breakout Session
Delivery Format: Facilitated Discussion

In my upcoming edited volume, Affective Labor and Alt-Ac Careers (University Press of Kansas, March 2022), it becomes clear that affective labor is an essential, but overlooked or ignored, aspect of our work in learning design and educational technology. The purpose of this facilitated discussion session is to collaboratively develop ways to recognize, reward, and support the affective labor we and our colleagues do every day—work that can take a heavy toll on motivation, well-being, and job satisfaction.
