No Assistant Professor Should Be an Island

Inside HigherEd is beginning a series addressing the writing needs of pretenured faculty.  In the first installment, “Writing for Academe: A Series on Dialogue, Mentoring, and Motivation,” Western Washington University professors Karen Hoelscher and Carmen Werder begin dishing up advice collected from veterans of their support program.

They suggest “aligning writing projects with department expectations” so that service feeds scholarship.  SoTL, anyone?

There’s more good advice in the article–and likely more to come.
