Time Management for Academic Workshop October 6

We invite you to participate in a virtual workshop titled “Time Management for Academics: How to Increase Scholarly Productivity While Teaching Effectively and Efficiently” sponsored by Drexel University and the Textbook & Academic Authors Association (TAA).

  • Wednesday, October 6
  • Noon – 2:00 p.m.
  • Via Zoom

Presenter

  • Christine Tulley, PhD, professor of English and founder and director of Master of Arts in Rhetoric and Writing, The University of Findlay, is the author of How Writing Faculty Write (2018) and contributes regularly to Inside Higher Education on faculty productivity issues.

Workshop Description

In this interactive workshop, participants will be invited to identify specific teaching tasks that infringe on writing time. Next, participants will be taught to use a combination of “pattern teaching” and grading “templates” that efficiently shorten these tasks without sacrificing effectiveness in order to preserve more time for writing for publication. In addition, we will review academic writing moves that can level up scholarly writing and increase chances of publication. Using this combination of strategies, participants will create and leave with a weekly framework of a writing/teaching system that safeguards time for scholarly productivity and prioritizes scholarly writing.

This workshop includes a Drexel University Institutional Membership to the Textbook & Academic Authors Association (TAA), a non-profit, interdisciplinary organization dedicated to helping academic authors thrive. All registrants will receive membership to TAA through October 2022. If you are already a TAA member, your membership will be renewed.

REGISTER

If you have any questions about TAA please feel free to contact mailto:Kim.Pawlak@taaonline.net.
