Faculty Development Event

Overcoming Scholarly Procrastination

Date: Friday, March 16, 2018

Time: 9:00 AM To 11:00 AM

Location: Price Center, Room 551

Event Description:
Faculty members are expected to produce scholarly work for professional growth and academic advancement. However, many medical educators have days filled with seeing patients, teaching, and administrative tasks and defer addressing their scholarly work. Dr. Marti Grayson will review the different types of procrastination when it comes to scholarly activities and develop strategies with participants to overcome the obstacles that can get in the way of starting and completing an academic project. Participants will leave with a personalized plan to move forward with their scholarly work. After taking this workshop, participants will be able to: • Explain the “cycle of procrastination” • Assess their personal strengths and weaknesses against the procrastination cycle • Explain strategies for minimizing scholarly procrastination • Develop a personal plan to reduce the procrastination of your scholarly activities

Target Audience:
Due to space constraints, participation in workshops sponsored by the Office of Faculty Development is limited to individuals with faculty appointments at the medical school. Thank you for understanding.
