WRITE-ON-SITE THURSDAYS
If you are working on an article, a book chapter, a grant report, or any other writing project, please join us for Write-on-Site which meets every Thursday morning from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. in the Faculty Development Office, 1116 Booth Library (below north entrance).

What does it mean to “write-on-site”? Kerry Ann Rockquemore coined the term to describe people coming together to work on their particular projects for up to two hours at least once a week. Writing together in one place can provide the accountability of showing up, cultivate the sense that we are part of a community of writers and help create that energy buzz that comes from being around others who are doing the same thing. Please join us! Bring your laptop to the Faculty Development Office, check in, grab a cup of tea or coffee and start working. Faculty Development supports your research. For further information, contact the Faculty Development Office at 581-7051.

WORKING WITH AND DEVELOPING STUDENT WORKERS
If you have student workers in your area, this workshop is for you. Join us from 8 a.m. to noon Thursday, Sept. 10, in the Arcola/Tuscola Room, MLK Jr. Union, when experts from various university departments will discuss student employment, internships, international students and some of the special needs of our student workers. Whether they are graduate students, interns, work-study or part time, they have a lot to offer us and we have a lot to offer them. It is important that students recognize and reflect on the interconnectedness of all their learning experiences, including their on-campus employment. See how you can be a part of that process. You are also invited to bring along any tool you might use in your area to help deal with student employees to share at the end of the program. Register now here. Contact Julie Benedict, jabenedict@eiu.edu, 581-8415, for information.
