NCFDD Workshop: Building a Publishing Pipeline: Concrete Strategies for Increasing Your Writing Productivity
Workshop conducted by: Dr. Erin Furtak, Professor and Associate Dean of Faculty in the School of Education, University of Colorado at Boulder on behalf of NCFDD. (Recording will not be available.)
The aim of the session is to help participants identify the challenges of working on multiple works at once (e.g., book manuscript, conference paper, research article, grant proposal). Dr. Furtak argues that there are many more categories and subcategories to be added to our project pipeline and presents an alternative concrete strategy for managing multiple projects: a multi-stage visual tracking system. Workshop participants are encouraged to start their own tracking system during the workshop and use it to determine where they need to focus their efforts. By recognizing the individual steps that take an idea from draft to finished manuscript, the facilitator helps participants to map their writing projects onto a visualized timeline.
