The myth persists that prolific scholars are born not made, but research suggests otherwise. New Mexico State’s Tara Gray, one of the most highly sought-after presenters in the US on professional productivity in academe, is our guest for a pair of interactive, hands-on workshops. Tara has presented workshops on academic and professional productivity in more than thirty-five of the United States, and in Thailand, Guatemala, Mexico, Canada, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.
UAlbany faculty members are invited to sign up for either of two events that are sure to have an impact on your daily work as well as on your long-term goals. Thursday’s short session will present strategies for increasing your scholarly productivity. In the longer Friday session, participants will put those strategies to use on their own writing and that of their colleagues. Please note: If you plan to attend the Friday session, please bring four copies of the first two pages from a rough draft of anything written in paragraph form that you want feedback on (dissertation, journal article, book chapter, grant proposal, tenure and promotion document, etc.).
