Spring 2019 Book Clubs

The Faculty Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning invites you to join a Faculty Book Club and Learning Community to support your success and connection to our community of teacher-scholars:

Faculty Learning Community:

FLC: Writing A Journal Article in 12 weeks

Using Wendy Laura Belcher’s Writing Your Journal Article in 12 Weeks: A Guide to Academic Publishing Success, members of a faculty learning community (FLC) will support one another in our individual quests to have an article accepted for publication in an academic journal. The FLC members will meet for one hour each week for twelve weeks to discuss progress and provide assistance to one another. Participants will receive a copy of the book, and each week we will read a chapter and complete the associated writing tasks. Chapters include advice related to topic and journal selection, strengthening the structure of the article, presenting evidence, providing feedback, editing, and responding to journal decisions.

Group 1 will meet on Wednesdays from 12:30-1:30 in FDC 114

Group 2 will meet based on interested faculty availability 

Please RSVP to facultycenter@csustan.edu  or x3216 and let us know which group you will be attending (so we can have an approximate head count) and to request a copy of the book we'll use to support our work.
