Writing Wednesdays: Virtual Faculty Writing Retreats (October 6)

photo of a laptop to represent writingDo you have a writing task that you’ve been putting off? The Office of Faculty Development offers virtual writing retreats, Writing Wednesdays, designed to support you in getting it done! The OFD team has designed synchronous 2.5-hour mini-retreats using the Pomodoro method, held on the first Wednesday of every month via Zoom. Our next session will be held on Wednesday, October 6.

During these sessions, faculty participants will:

  • Work toward a specific writing task in a structured and supportive environment;
  • Be able to access resources from campus experts such as the Libraries, and the IRB office; and
  • Discover tips for preparing for the retreat and getting your writing done.

Special bonus for Writing Wednesdays: we have pre-recorded child edutainment provided by Arts NC State for your Wolfpack pups ages 3 to 12 years.

Register today and plan to dedicate uninterrupted time to writing your article, grant proposal, book chapter, or dossier materials.

Global Engagement Institute

The annual Global Engagement Institute (GEI) provides professional development opportunities for faculty and staff interested in developing research, scholarship or academic programs that strengthen and enhance NC State’s collaboration with global partners. Each year, a GEI cohort of up to 12 faculty and/or staff members is selected to participate in a variety of activities focusing on a world region or topical orientation. For the 2021-2022 academic year, the emphasis will be on developing academic and research collaboration through the Global Learning for All initiative.
