Workshop Topic: Just Add Google (Scholar) – Exploiting Digital Capabilities for Fast Lit Reviews

These monthly meetings help faculty "get in the mood" and focus singularly on their writing.  They allow faculty to come together and commit to writing in a common space for a certain number of hours with no external distractions.  During these monthly meetings, the Center facilitates the formation of small writing groups of like-minded colleagues with similar projects or writing goals.

From the classroom, to committee work to research, we increasingly find ourselves in a world that values team-work and collaboration.  Dr. Jen Jones will lead us in a series of activities designed to help us build and cultivate teams and communicate effectively.   These activities may lead to self-discovery about how you work best in teams or provide source material to inform your classroom activities or improve the dynamics of your administrative and research collaborations.

Dr. Jen Jones is an assistant professor of communication at Seton Hill University.  She has designed and facilitated team-building and leadership development programs for corporate clients and in academic settings.

Refreshments will be available.  This workshop is designed for faculty, staff and administrators.  Participation is limited to 25 participants.

This month's meeting focuses on Wendy Belcher's book, Writing A Journal Article in 12 Weeks.
