Below is just a list of Crown Faculty Center sponsored events including dates, times and places. I've described some of the topics we might cover for various kinds of sessions. We will send out reminders before each event with more specific information about topics, etc. At that point we need RSVPS!
I have NOT planned and programmed everything because I really would like to "crowd source" this a bit. What else should Crown offer as lunch time topics on teaching or for afternoon workshops for scholarship? Who do you think should present material or lead discussions about various topics? Please send me your thoughts, firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks for your ideas.

Events for All Faculty
SCHOLARSHIP WRITING AND RESEARCH MORNINGS (yes, SWARMS)
At the suggestion of a faculty working group, the Crown Center will staff and provide coffee, light breakfast, and quiet in the Cossitt Commons or Learning Commons Living Room for the first two mornings or each block. Breakfast, coffee, chatting, goal setting from 8:30 to 9, then heads down and quiet work on scholarly projects in our own café-like setting from 9-11:30. Bring whatever you need to get some work done in that setting: a laptop, a book, articles you’re reading, a pile of data to crunch.

Publish & Flourish: Become a Prolific Scholar
Half block workshop presented by Tara Gray
When it comes to publishing - work harder, not smarter. Research points to specific steps to help scholars become better, more prolific including:
- Write daily for 15-30 minutes
- Organize around key or topic sentences
- Solicit the right feedback from the right colleagues
Learn about these steps and much more in a one day workshop during halfblock. Tara Gray has used these steps to publish three books and has presented workshops across the U.S. and the world.
Every scholar can become more prolific. What are you waiting for?
