The Center for Teaching, Research, and Learning and the
Humanities Lab are partnering to support AU faculty with their writing
projects. You might be starting a book chapter, editing a fellowship or grant
application, or drafting an op-ed. The new Partners in Writing Program offers
both an on-campus space for writing (WritingSpace) and opportunities to team up
with colleagues to bolster your individual efforts (Writing Teams).
Beginning on September 15, 2016, the Humanities Lab (Battelle Tompkins 228) will be available every Thursday morning (9:30 am – 12:00
noon) as a quiet place to do individual writing. Just bring your preferred
writing implements (laptop, tablet, or paper and pen) and settle into this
Many faculty members find it useful to partner with
colleagues when working on an individual writing project. For some, the best
form of support is having “writing buddies” who offer moral support and help
keep their colleagues on track. Others benefit from exchanging writing drafts
with one another.
CTRL and the Humanities Lab invite you to let us know if you would like help in forming a team. If you are interested- and haven't already filled out our questionnaire- please do so here. This information will help us match you with colleagues.
Don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions. Kim
Budget Coordinator in CTRL and Coordinator of Partners in Writing, is managing logistics for the program and will be
very happy to help.
