Improve Your Path to Success by Joining a Writing Group.
Tuesday January 22, 12:00 – 1:00 p.m , SUB 233. (Light snacks provided.)
No RSVP needed
The Center for Faculty Excellence created MSU writing groups using a research-based model beginning Spring 2013 and they have been extremely successful! We will conduct an information session on Tuesday, January 22 on the model we have used and begin putting people into groups. By attending the information session, you are not committed to joining a group, but you will be considered as being seriously interested.
Participating in a writing group means committing to writing at least 15 to 30 minutes a day, keeping a log of your writing, and meeting weekly with the group to share your results. The group will be expected to provide substantive input – this is not an editing group.
Background: Research has shown that daily writing, recording keeping, and accountability increases faculty productivity by a factor of nine or ten based upon the number of pages written or revised per year!
Attendees will receive 1 credit towards membership in the Center.
Attending this workshop allows faculty to achieve this Center for Faculty Excellence faculty learning outcome: Increasing scholarly productivity
