The Duke Faculty Write Program is a faculty-led initiative sponsored by the Thompson Writing Program. It aims to advance faculty writing through workshops, retreats, writing groups, and consultations. This summer, the Faculty Write Program is offering two workshops to help faculty make time for scholarship-related writing.

Want one last writing burst before Fall semester begins? Would you like to reconnect with colleagues and write alongside faculty from a range of disciplines? Each day of this writing retreat includes time to write independently in a comfortable, relaxed space and optional workshops on productive writing habits.

Balancing Teaching and Scholarship: A Fall Course Planning Workshop

August 9, 2019
9am-3:30pmKing’s Daughters Inn

For faculty teaching in Fall 2019.

At the start of every semester, do you hope that, finally, this will be the one…

…when you don’t get overwhelmed by teaching? 

…when you also make progress on your writing and research?

…when you make a realistic plan for how you will spend your time, and then actually stick to it?  

In this workshop, award-winning teacher Monique Dufour will show you how you can optimize your time and promote student learning. Learn why it’s hard to manage the time you spend on teaching, why you should, and how you can.

Registration is required
