Jefferson Research Collaborative Writing Retreat

Jefferson Research Collaborative Writing Retreat

As a significant pillar of the faculty role, writing for publication can be a very challenging task for faculty in higher education. To help increase scholarly activity in faculty, Jefferson College is hosting a Writing Retreat on May 5th, 2016 from 8:30a-5p in the college boardroom. This retreat is structured to help foster periods of writing progress with intervals for peer feedback. The Writing Retreat is also designed to foster the formation of a community of scholarly writers, which will provide support to faculty through peer-to-peer and mentorship relationships. The design is such to motivate in a structured environment for faculty to learn about the scholarly process. During the retreat, faculty are expected to produce a significant amount of writing towards a publication.
