WAND Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Workshop: Writing for Publication

The focus of this workshop will be SoTL writing with the aim of completing an abstract.

Intended audience: those who participated in the first workshop and anyone who intends to complete an abstract in an identified SoTL topic.

The focus of workshop two will be SoTL writing with the aim of completing an abstract.  In recognition that people are at different stages of a SoTL project, the abstract may be for an initial research proposal or a journal article. Those planning to attend will be asked to complete a survey late-June to identify their SoTL topic (hopefully shaped through workshop one) and highlight key issues relating to SoTL writing. For example, the workshop can explore the kinds of voices SoTL authors use, identifying an audience, getting started, translating initial thoughts into finished writing and overcoming internal resistance to writing and revising.
