Free webinars on academic career advancement? Yes please!

The start of the academic year is when we all need to build our calendars so we can keep everything straight — when are my classes? when are my committee meetings? when are my hot yoga workouts?







OK, maybe not hot yoga. But when our calendar gets busy, it can be hard to remember to fit in some opportunities for professional development — especially in areas that don’t always hit our day-to-day schedule, like article writing and professional career management. That’s why jumping on opportunities while the academic year is young can be helpful — and that’s where Augie Prof in Progress comes in handy.

We here at APP love free. So when the fine folks at Academic Coaching and Writing offer free webinars on topics like writing articles and book proposals, managing your tenure clock and academic “brand,” even research tips for dissertators, I’ve gotta pass it on.

So register for your free webinars… and I’ll see you in Zumba class.
