PHOW! Give yourself a Power Hour of Writing
Join the Power Hour of Writing (PHOW), a new monthly writing group for all UAL staff. Give yourself the space, time, encouragement and support to proactively engage with writing.
Use this time to:
- Map out your AdvanceHE Fellowship application
- Draft an article (maybe for UAL’s in-house Spark Journal?)
- Compose a report
- Get started on a funding application
- Scribble creatively
Research by Jensen (2017) shows this type of activity improves accountability, creates positive habits about academic writing, (Sword, 2017; Jensen, 2017) and feelings of isolation can be reduced (Murray, 2015).
So why not make this part of your monthly routine? Join us! All staff are welcome.
1.50 – 1.55pm
1:55 – 2:05pm
2.05 – 3.05pm
Welcome from your facilitator, Santanu Vasant
