FACULTY SUMMER WRITING GROUPS: RE(LOCATING) YOUR WRITING ‘MOJO’ 

Academic writing can be a very lonely endeavor squeezed in between teaching and a growing load of administrative tasks. Dr. John Ziker argues in the first stage of a study of faculty time allocation at Boise State in which he found that homo academicans spent 57% of their time working alone; only 17% reported doing activities with colleagues (2014). Yet research indicates that faculty who had good research networks were generally more productive across teaching, research and service.  So how do we connect people across programs and disciplines, yet also address writing and research production?

Join us May 2, 2014 from 12-1 pm in the Library's 6th floor for a discussion on summer writing groups.
