It was such a tremendous pleasure to provide a workshop for Saginaw Valley State University faculty! To follow up on our workshop, I have some information, additional resources, and a few bonus items for you.

A FEW BONUS ITEMS!
BONUS #1: Cultivating a Network of Mentors and Sponsors
For those of you who were unable to attend, I've included an audio and slides of the core content on how to build a network of mentors. This is a short tele-workshop by the same name.

BONUS #2: Writing Accountability
Here's a lengthier description of the different types of writing accountability structures I described in the workshop
Resources & Referrals:
I mentioned a number of supportive resources and referrals that you can use to support your writing (nags, coaches, online writing groups, etc...). All of them can be found by clicking on the "Resources and Referrals" button in the left hand navigation bar.
Monthly Training Workshops:
The workshop you experienced was an example of the Tele-Workshops we offer each month to for our institutional and community members. If you want to do a monthly deep dive on the Thriving in the Academy series then feel free to join us either live on the monthly tele-workshops or by downloading the audio afterward and listening at your convenience. If you would like to participate in the workshops and forum, please consider becoming an individual NCFDD Community Member or asking your college/university to become an Institutional Member.
Faculty Success Program:
Some of you expressed interest in our 15-week Boot-Camp that runs every Fall, Spring, and Summer Semester. You can read more about the program by clicking here. It's not for everyone, but if you need to make some radical changes in your productivity and/or work-life balance AND you know that you'll be most effective working within an intense community of support and accountability, then consider enrolling in our next session. Registration for the Spring Semester boot-camp is currently open and will end on December 15, 2012.I greatly enjoyed working with you and am looking forward to hearing about all of your success.
