Tenure & Time Management:
 
How to Manage Your Time So You Can Publish Prolifically AND Have A Life Beyond The Academy

Tenure and Time Management is a workshop for faculty, post-docs, and graduate students who:

  • Feel like you are working long hours but making little progress towards the things that matter to your long-term success
  • Feel like you are not currently working at your highest intellectual potential because your time is taken up by a constant stream of mundane activities
  • Are fearful that your 3rd year or tenure review is right around the corner, but you are not publishing at a rate that is consistent with your institution's expectations
  • Have recently had a critical 3rd year review that indicates your time is being spent on the wrong activities and there are questions about your ability to win tenure at your current institution
  • Feel tired from working many hours per week but dissatisfied with the outcome at the end of each week
  • Feel unable or unclear about how to align your time with your institution's priorities
  • Are trying to finish a dissertation, or maximize a post-doc position while developing strategies for success as you move towards the job market
  • Just can't figure out how your semesters fly by without progress on your research, writing, and publication
 
What Will You Learn?
  • Understand the common challenges people face when making the transition from graduate student to professor
  • Avoid the common mistakes new faculty, post-docs, and doctoral students make in managing their time
  • Learn why and how to align your work time with institutional and personal priorities
  • Create time for academic writing and your personal goals
  • Develop a network of support and accountability for your writing
