How to Develop a Faculty Writing Group at a Teaching-Intensive University

Facilitator: Christine Tulley


Faculty at liberal arts colleges and comprehensive universities often struggle with balancing heavy teaching and service loads with finding time to write. These overstretched faculty members are increasingly expected to publish, write grants, and present at conferences. Faculty at teaching-intensive institutions typically do not have the release time or large blocks of free time to write, and a faculty writing group, such as the one described in this session, can teach faculty to regularly write and publish even within these very busy environments.


In this workshop, participants will learn: 

  • How to set up a faculty writing group (as a regular faculty member looking to start a culture of scholarship on campus, as an administrator planning to host such a group, or someone in between)     
  • How to structure faculty writing group sessions so faculty across a wide range of disciplines get the skills and/or feedback they need to pursue, manage, and complete writing projects 
  • How to promote the faculty writing group on campus and forge connections with other useful areas such as a grants office and the library
  • How to work with various types of faculty writers ranging from faculty who have never/seldom published, professional faculty in programs such as occupational therapy, faculty who have not published in a long time, senior faculty, etc.
  • How to encourage faculty writing group members to stay with the group even during notoriously busy times at teaching-intensive institutions (advising, midterms, etc.)


Christine Tulley, PhD is the co-director of The University of Findlay Center for Teaching Excellence (CTE) and Director of Writing at The University of Findlay. She founded the first formal faculty writing group at UF and continues to lead writing groups each semester. She is the author of several articles in journals such as the Journal of Faculty Development, Pedagogy, Computers and Composition, and the Journal of Writing Teacher Education.
