    Webinar: Developing Your Academic Writing – A Dynamic System Approach

    Speaker: Dr Patricia Goodson (Texas A&M University)

    For productive and low-stress writing, academics need more than a few tips or tools. We need a system.  This webinar will challenge participants to consider their current system(s) for tackling academic writing and will offer one alternative. This alternative system combines specific strategies, tools, and support for developing a healthy and life-long, sustainable writing habit.

    Time: Thursday, March 25th at 9am (U.S. Central) / 2pm (London) / 7.30pm (New Delhi). This webinar is scheduled for 90 minutes with plenty of opportunity for Q&A.
