A Structured Writing Programme for Staff: Facilitating Knowledge, Skills, Confidence and Publishing Outcomes
Devlin, Marcia; Radloff, Alex
Journal of Further and Higher Education, v38 n2 p230-248 2014
The growing interest in the higher education sector in publishing pedagogical research has led to a focus on professional development for staff who wish to engage in this endeavour. This paper describes and evaluates a specific programme designed to help university staff to prepare and submit a high-quality paper to a peer-reviewed journal. Features of the programme that contributed to outcomes include the systematic, structured support provided by the programme and facilitator and the opportunity to work with a peer support group, as well as the use of technology to allow participation across campuses. The positive outcomes of the programme in terms of publications and professional and personal benefits for participants are outlined. The programme resulted in peer-reviewed and other publications, as well as increasing the participants' knowledge and confidence related to academic writing and publishing.
