The Faculty Writing Circle is back this Friday, online!

Posted on: Aug 23, 2021

We are resuming the Faculty Writing Circle (FWC) online, led by the AVP, Research & Faculty Development, Ramses Ilarraza.
This group has been meeting for the past years under the leadership of the Vice-President Academic & Provost Valerie Henitiuk.

When will the Faculty Writing Circle meet?

As before, the FWC will meet every Friday 9:00 -10:00 a.m. restarting on Friday, August 27th, 2021. For now, the meetings will now be held online, via Google Meet. Once we are fully back on campus, we will have a room booked for it.




Who can join?

Everyone at CUE are welcome to join this informal support group, which is intended to provide that much needed space in our calendars to focus on academic writing. We welcome CUE members from all backgrounds and stages in their academic careers.
To join the list of participants, email us at research@concordia.ab.ca. In case you have not yet been included in the list, you may still request to join  a session using the following link.

What are the benefits of participating?

Few things are as rewarding as being able to share our thoughts, or our research findings. The Faculty Writing Circle provides an opportunity to further our impact through structured time for thinking and writing, outside from our regular activities. As an added benefit, you will become part of a group of colleagues with whom to discuss and collaborate, helping everyone further their writing goals.

How does the Faculty Writing Circle work?

As participants in the Faculty Writing Circle, we can use the time to write silently, focusing on our own projects. Or we can engage in discussions, bouncing ideas and drafts off one another. We can even talk about academic writing in general–process and product. The Faculty Writing Circle is what we decide to make of it.
