Daily Writing for Academic Scientists and Engineers

Are you struggling with writing the products you want to write, but feel that daily writing is not for you? Do you feel like the exhortation for daily writing doesn’t fit the needs of faculty in the sciences and engineering? Join us to explore experimenting with some new tools or ways of thinking about making daily writing work for you in your science or engineering context, including thinking about grant applications and reports, and overseeing your research team’s writing on your group’s funded research. We will build on NCFDD’s core curriculum and supplement with ideas from Tara Mohr’s “Playing Big” model, and Robert Boice’s “Advice for New Faculty Members” to help you come up with a plan to try out to help advance your scientific academic writing.

Facilitator Bio: 

Alice Pawley, PhD, is Associate Professor of Engineering Education at Purdue University and affiliate faculty with Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies. She’s also partner to another academic and parent to a kindergartener and a toddler. She uses qualitative methods such as narrative analysis to study race, class, and gender in engineering education. She uses feminist and critical race theory, as well as Smith’s theory of ruling relations, to understand structural explanations for the low number of women and people of colour in engineering education. She is a CAREER and PECASE awardee, and she helped found and maintain the PEER Collaborative, a peer-mentoring community of academics primarily evaluated on doing engineering education research. She has primarily published in the Journal for Engineering Education, International Journal for Engineering Education, NWSA Journal (now Feminist Formations), and co-edited a book, Engineering and Social Justice: In the University and Beyond published with Purdue University Press. Outside of work, she loves to cook things from the garden, listen to and play music, and build houses out of blocks with her kids.
