Beyond Time Management: 7 Productivity Skills Every Academic Writer Should Cultivate

Presenter: Katie Linder, Director of Ecampus Research Unit, Oregon State University

Although good time management is often seen as the panacea of successful academic writing, there are many other skills involved. In this interactive workshop, Dr. Katie Linder shares seven productivity skills that academic writers can cultivate to improve their prioritization, goal-setting, focus, organization, efficiency, consistency, and follow-through. Specific examples and practical strategies are emphasized to help participants identify and self-assess each skill in their own writing lives. Participants will walk away with a new awareness of their strengths and potential areas of future professional development.

She currently directs the Ecampus Research Unit at Oregon State University and hosts the You've Got This podcast, The Anatomy of a Book podcast, and the Research in Action podcast.
