Writing, even for research and scholarship, is a creative form of expression that involves a cognitive and emotional mindset. It also involves developing effective behavioral habits. Finding harmony between one’s mindset and behavior habits is the key to experiencing the joy of being a life-long productive writer. This workshop invites educators to begin reflecting upon the mindset and practices attuned to experiencing the joy of productive research and scholarship.

Participants will:

  1. Learn to connect internal cognitive messages and emotions to productive writing;
  2. Identify specific strengths-based strategies for shaping the cognitive messages and emotions needed for productive writing; and
  3. Identify a few concrete behavioral strategies akin to productive and joyful scholarship.
