Every scholar can become more prolific. What are you waiting for?
Many scholarly writers are educated at the school of hard knocks, but it’s not the only school, or even the best. Much is known about how to become a better, more prolific scholar and anybody can. Even when you can’t work harder, there are important ways to work smarter.
Research points to specific steps scholars can take to become better, more prolific scholars, including:
- Writing daily for 15-30 minutes
- Organizing around key or topic sentences
- Soliciting the right feedback from the right colleagues
Previous participants who took these steps increased their scholarly productivity by a factor of three.
Tara Gray serves as an associate professor of criminal justice and the founding director of the Teaching Academy at New Mexico State University. She has used these steps to publish three books, including Publish & Flourish: Become a Prolific Scholar. She has presented workshops to more than 5,000 scholars in more than thirty states, and in Guatemala, Mexico, Canada, Thailand, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. As a workshop presenter, Dr. Gray is "spirited, informative and entertaining—she's anything but gray!"
This event is by invitation only.
