Pre-Tenure Strategies Success and Productivity
This workshop is tailored for pre-tenure faculty audience. It will focus on the themes of mentoring, writing productivity, and work/life balance. These draw from her previous seminar topics, “Mentoring 101: How to Get What You Need to Thrive in the Academy” and “Tenure & Time Management: How to Manage Your Time so You Can Publish Prolifically AND Have a Life Beyond the Ivory Tower.”
Charting a Meaningful Post-Tenure Career
The afternoon workshop is for those faculty who are post-tenure and address topics such as “Writing Your Next Chapter: How to Find Your Mojo and Move Forward at Mid-Career.” Dr. Rockquemore’s Inside Higher Ed articles in 2012 have focused on post-tenure faculty. Recent articles discuss motivation for staying in academe (July 30, 2012), handling post-tenure service requests (July 23, 2012), “mid-career productivity issues” (July 9, 2012), “how mid-career academics can find their place on emotional spectrum” (July 2, 2012), “chart[ing] a meaningful post-tenure career” (June 25, 2012), and the “need for tenured faculty members to have mentoring” (November 28, 2011).
Both workshops have now filled. We encourage you to WAITLIST by responding to the questions on the online registration form. We are exploring the possibility of increasing participation and will contact waitlisted individuals as soon as possible.
