Summer Workshops on Teaching and Learning

Summer Workshops are designed to bring faculty together from across the campus to generate ideas to enhance pedagogy, focus on particular issues vital to intellectual success, and develop better ways to engage students in collaborative learning endeavors.  Providing a concentrated time in the summer during which faculty can focus on these issues and collaborate on unique ways to address them has resulted in interesting outcomes at an individual level such as making changes in course work, and campus-wide community initiatives.

Let's Get that Article Published!

Ready to turn your paper into an article? Consider signing up for the KCEL Summer Article Workshop! Facilitated by Associate Professor of Religion Sarah Ruble, this workshop will help you turn your data or an existing manuscript into a publishable piece. Over the summer you will develop a feasible work plan for your scholarship and engage in activities that address the necessary components in the academic publishing process. By participating in the workshop, you will be on track to submit an article to an editor at a journal of your choice by the end of summer.

Virtual Summer Writing Accountability Group

Looking to keep (or get) on track with your writing? Introducing the Virtual Summer Writing Accountability Group.

The Virtual Summer Writing Accountability Group, will be part of an online system that has helped thousands of academics become more prolific, successful and creative writers and researchers. We have arranged for a special group just for Gustavus faculty, so that we can experience a summer of support, accountability and especially writing productivity. Designed to help build the habits that enable writing a reasonable amount each day, so that distractions or tasks with urgent deadlines don't come before the long-term and ongoing writing associated with scholarly productivity, this group will focus on the process of writing, not the content of your writing. Members of the group will not read and comment on one another’s work. This structure helps build and maintain a daily writing habit by providing progress tracking, accountability and structure.
