OTL Conference Room (Anderson Academic Commons 345)

In this workshop, participants will have the opportunity to discuss and revise an assignment prompt they are developing or revising for a current or future course. Participants will discuss current prompt-writing and revision practices as a group and in one-on-one conversations, will learn strategies for revising prompts, and will apply these strategies to their own assignment prompts. Participants should bring a hard and/or digital copy of an assignment prompt they would like to revise.

Mountain View Room (Ruffatto Hall 401)

Mid-career faculty commonly describe a range of rank-specific challenges including:

  • Managing time in the face of increased service and administrative responsibilities
  • Working long hours but making little progress on their research agenda
  • An absence of mentoring to help navigate the post tenure landscape
  • Feeling unsupported in their desire for work family balance
  • Missing the passion, drive, and clarity they once held for their intellectual projects

In the Writing Your Next Chapter workshop, we outline the most common issues mid-career faculty face and provide participants with strategies for identifying where they are stuck and how to move forward in their intellectual projects. The facilitator for the workshop will be Dr. Erin Furtak from the University of Colorado at Boulder, through our membership with the National Center for Faculty Development and Diversity (NCFDD).

All faculty are welcome to attend.
