Final call for the New Faculty Institute writing retreat

Submitted by Esther Swilley

A few spots are still available for the first K-State New Faculty Institute Writing Retreat. Get a head start on your summer writing with some assistance. The Writing Retreat will give you the opportunity to get away from interruptions and devote one day to writing and/or finalizing papers and articles.

Work on your research and jump start summer writing projects. The retreat will be from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. April 18 off campus at a faculty member's home for a comfortable, relaxing and collegial environment. There is no cost to attend.

You will be able to think, organize and write for three hours in the morning, have lunch and listen to a guest speaker, then write for another three hours in the afternoon. Everyone will engage in short-term goal setting and self-evaluation exercises in the beginning and at the end of the day. A light breakfast, lunch, snacks and lots of coffee will be provided, as well as Internet access. The retreat is restricted to no more than 20 faculty. This event is sponsored by the Teaching and Learning Center.

For more information, contact Esther Swilley, New Faculty Institute coordinator at esthers@k-state.edu, or Jana Fallin, director of the Teaching and Learning Center at 785-532-7828.
