The mission of UCF’s Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP), What’s Next: Integrative Learning for Professional and Civic Preparation, is to prepare our graduates to successfully enter and participate in the next steps of their professional and civic lives through integrative learning. In order to achieve this mission, the QEP has funded numerous faculty and staff projects, workshops, and events focused on creating a culture of integrative learning at UCF. As we enter the next phase of the QEP, we are now looking to support faculty in publishing Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) research related to their integrative-learning projects, whether QEP-funded or not.

The purpose of this cohort is to enable faculty and staff to produce manuscripts for submission to academic journals. It is designed to foster a community of colleagues who will support each other in making time for research and writing in the midst of their other various professional and personal obligations. It is also designed to help participants make and meet weekly goals. Writers will work over 12 weeks during the spring term to draft an article-length manuscript (ideally this would entail revising an existing piece of writing (conference paper, chapter, unpublished draft, etc.), to identify publishing venues, and to submit the finished product for publication. Participants should be prepared to attend all six face-to-face meetings, to have regular online “check ins” with the workshop group, and, most importantly, to talk about their work with colleagues. Each participant will receive a copy of the Writing Your Journal Article in 12 Weeks book prior to the beginning of the workshop.

Participants will receive $500 at the end of the spring 2020 semester upon successful completion of deliverables (a completed article draft) and participation in the six face-to-face meetings and online check ins. Light refreshments will be provided at each session.

Space is limited. To apply, please send a curriculum vitae and brief statement (no more than 200 words) describing your potential article topic.
