IJAD Writing Retreat & Pre-conference workshop

IJAD Writing Retreat

May 27-30, 2024

Fully online

$50 US

Please register (Registration for the ICED Conference is not required)

In this four-day online writing retreat, which takes place prior to the ICED Conference, participants will work on their own writing, provide and receive feedback from a small group of peers, and collaborate with a member of the IJAD editorial team. Writing projects must be focused on academic/educational development in higher education, but the genre and audience for these projects are wide open; there is no expectation that participants are writing for IJAD. The retreat is open to both new and established scholars. Participants will meet synchronously online for about 60-120 minutes each day, and then be expected to focus a significant portion of the remainder of each day (at least 6-8 hours) to make meaningful progress on their writing during the retreat. After registration, participants will be assigned to small peer groups, which will meet fully online, based on time zones. For more information, please see this webpage. For questions, please email Henk Huijser (h.huijser@qut.edu.au).

In this three-hour interactive pre-conference workshop, the International Journal of Academic Development (IJAD) editorial team will guide you through the publication process in this journal. The programme will focus on how to frame your proposal, prepare a strong manuscript, make your reviewers’ tasks easier from the outset and respond to their feedback appropriately, and maintain good relationships with your IJAD editor. You will develop concrete plans for your own research project and end with an action plan for productive writing. Lunch is included in the cost of the programme. With the registration fee, participants can also engage in the 11:30 – 14:30 and 15:30 – 18:30 pre-conference workshops at no additional cost.
