Writing, Presenting, and Publishing
Faculty Learning Communities on Writing
These communities are groups of faculty from multiple disciplines who meet regularly to work on individual projects or goals related to a common theme, such as Writing an Article in 12 Weeks . These communities thrive on interactive practices and provide collegial support for structuring, writing, and/or editing papers and manuscripts. For questions about these FDC services or for individual or group consultations on your writing projects, contact FDC Faculty Coordinator for Scholarly and Creative Activity Dr. Terri Patchen at email@example.com.
The FDC offers and promotes workshops on:
- Moving revise and resubmits or rejects to publication
- Improving Your Presentations
When presenting or preparing your scholarly or creative work for publication, you can also take advantage of the FDC's graphic design services for posters and illustrations.
