Faculty Writing: Strategies for Steady Success

02/13/2009

Contributed by Susanne Morgan

The Center for Faculty Excellence invites you to the Teaching Commons on Wednesday, February 25, from 9:00 to 10:00 a.m. in room 413 of the Center for Health Sciences (CHS).

"Pennies a Day: Building Your Writing Account"
Wednesday, February 25
9:00-10:00 a.m.

Research indicates that faculty who develop the habit of writing regularly for short periods are more productive and successful than those who "binge write." Ithaca College faculty struggle to maintain a scholarly agenda while teaching multiple courses. This session presents some strategies for building the habit of successful scholarly writing.

Online registration leads to a reminder, but dropping in is fine too. Register at the Center for Faculty Excellence (CFE):

CFE: Teaching Commons Website

The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching describes the Teaching and Learning Commons as “an intellectual community space provided to enrich and encourage exchange of knowledge about teaching and learning.” At Ithaca College the Center for Faculty Excellence will host a series of conversations to foster that exchange. Scheduled in CHS 413 at a variety of times, the Teaching Commons will support faculty members in our scholarly teaching. Resources from the sessions will be available at the CFE web page.

Additional events include:

"A Balanced Portfolio: Teaching, Scholarship, Service"
Wednesday, March 18
10:00-11:00 a.m.
This session considers the elements of a good career at Ithaca College and presents reflections by successful faculty members here and at comparable institutions.

"My Return on My Investment in Assessment"
Wednesday, April 8
9:00-10:00 a.m.
Most faculty members are engaged in the institutional efforts to define and assess student learning outcomes in our departments and our courses. This session focuses on strategies for making some of that effort work to enhance our scholarly profile.
