Mastering Academic Time Management: How to Manage Your Time So You Can Publish Prolifically

New faculty members commonly describe:

  • Working long hours but making little progress on their research and writing
  • A sense of loneliness that stems from limited mentoring and community
  • Feeling unsupported in their desire for work-family balance and without the skills to achieve it
  • Wondering whether the academic path is the right career choice

This workshop is specifically designed to address these issues and provide participants with concrete skills to successfully transition from graduate student/trainee to faculty. Specifically, participants will learn:

  • The common time challenges academics face
  • How to avoid the most common mistakes that new faculty make in managing their time
  • Why and how to align work time with institutional and personal priorities
  • How to create time for academic writing and research
  • How to organize a network of support and accountability for writing productivity and balance

Facilitated by: Mindi Thompson, PhD, University of Wisconsin, Madison
