Finding Focus: Reclaiming Your Writing in Age of Distractions
presented by James Lang

Monday, June 7, 2021
10-11:30 a.m.

Register for Finding Focus: Reclaiming Your Writing in Age of Distractions online.

In an age of infinite distractions, and in the face of endless demands on our time, how can we reclaim or discover the time and energy for our research and writing? In this interactive session, Lang will invite participants to consider three features of the writing process that can support or hinder our writing: the emotions that writing inspires in us, the habits that we build around our writing, and the social supports that we need for productive writing. For more information, visit the CTLE events page.

Topic for Tuesday, May 11 and Friday, May 14: Reflective Teaching
This week, practice a dialogue tool that you can share with your students.
Please refer to the webpage, “End-of-the-Semester Reflection from the Teachers Point of View” to inspire the discussion.
Although this is the topic for the session, Brave Space Coffee Hour discussions tend to be wide-ranging.
