Online Workshop on
Turbocharge Your Writing

15 March 2023

In academia, it is often assumed that writing comes naturally. However, an overwhelming body of research shows that there are very clear and practical strategies that can greatly increase your writing productivity.

Would you like to know the secret to high-output, low-stress scholarly writing?

The Technological University of the Shannon (TUS) is organising an Online Workshop on Turbocharging Your Writing, by Dr Hugh Kearns (ThinkWell), providing the attendee with an opportunity to join a Community of Practice of Postgraduate Research Supervisors for shared learning and discovery in their supervision practice and experience.

Online Workshop
Turbocharge Your Writing

24 March 2023 • 10h00-12h00 CET

This workshop will help you understand:

  • Why it’s hard to get started
  • How we deliberately use distractions to slow down writing
  • The principles of quick starting
  • How to deal with destructive internal beliefs
  • How to set a writing plan and stick to it
  • How to set achievable goals by writing in a silo
  • How to greatly increase the number of actual words you produce
  • How to clarify your thinking, and improve the quality of your work

It is open to research higher degree students at any point in their candidature, and academic/research staff wishing to increase their writing output.

This training is conducted over one workshop. 

Each attendee will receive a pre-workshop reading. 
Participants who attend the workshop and complete a short reflective learning piece on their supervision can also be considered for a TUS Digital Badge.
