Workshop | Establishing and Maintaining the "Write" Habit: Getting a Jump Start on Your Writing Productivity
Did you know that if you wrote just 30 minutes a day, every day, within one year you could have written 10 articles or a book (McIntosh, 2009)? As academics, we are expected to publish prolifically and to help our students to do the same. Yet few of us have ever been taught how to establish and maintain the “write” habit. How can we help ourselves to become less stressed, more productive, and better writers? Which instructional strategies can help us to improve our writing?
In this workshop, participants will become familiar with strategies for helping themselves establish a regular and productive writing habit. This interactive session is designed to inspire, motivate, and provide techniques that can be applied immediately to one’s academic writing life.
