10/26/18: Research Strategies Faculty Panel

Panel on Research Strategies for Junior Faculty Members

Friday, October 26, 2018

Panel discussion: 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.

McCormick Lounge (Coffey Hall)

Lunch and discussion to follow in the dining room of Piper Hall

The purpose of this panel is to learn from successful women faculty about what has worked—and not worked—in the research strategies they have developed on their path to becoming productive researchers across a range of disciplines and methodologies. As research is strengthened by considering work beyond both the substantive and methodological boundaries of one’s own discipline, the goal of the panel is for every participant to take away new approaches and questions to ask about which research strategies they undertake in their own work. After the panel discussion, please join us for lunch in the dining room of Piper Hall.

Topics discussed may include:

  • Planning for the future: 5 year, academic year, semester, week
  • Project management strategies
  • Writing practices (e.g., write every day or no?)
  • Whether and when to collaborate with other scholars (and in what ways)
  • Whether and when to incorporate undergraduate and graduate students as research assistants and collaborators
  • Whether and when to apply for funding
