Publish and Flourish

May 19, 2016 | 8:30AM–3:30PM
Grace Hall Atrium

May’s Faculty Development Workshop will be dedicated to faculty scholarship. For a portion of the day, we will welcome Dr. Tara Gray to deliver her popular workshop, Publish and Flourish.

Increase your scholarly productivity by a factor of three. Write prose that is clearer, better organized, and more compelling. Learn to work smarter, not harder.

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. Research points to specific steps scholars can take including:

  • Write daily for 15-30 minutes.
  • Revise paragraphs around key sentences and papers around lists of key sentences.
  • Solicit the right feedback from the right colleagues and make effective use of feedback.

What previous Publish and Flourish participants have said:

  • “Your methods changed my writing life. For the four years before the workshop, I wrote or revised 44 pages a year, but in the four years after, I wrote or revised 220 pages per year—five times as much!”
  • “In all honesty, you probably have provided me with all the tools I need to get tenure and even a full professorship.”
  • As a workshop presenter, Dr. Gray is “spirited, informative and entertaining—she's anything but gray!”

Dr. 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 10,000 scholars in 120 institutions, thirty-five states, and Guatemala, Mexico, Canada, Thailand, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.

In addition to Dr. Gray’s workshop, members of Cabrini’s faculty will share with us their tips on setting a scholarly agenda, selecting the best journals, mastering the conference to publication process, and more.

This workshop is sponsored by the Textbook and Academic Authors Association (TAA) (www.taaonline.net), as well as the Faculty Development Sub-committee.

  • This workshop is open to all full-time faculty.
  • A continental breakfast and lunch will be provided!
  • RSVP by April 29, 2016, to facultysupport@cabrini.edu.
