A workshop on resilient writing was delivered as a part of this year’s CLE writing retreat. The session focussed on maintaining motivation and perseverance during the writing process, and strategies around dealing with rejection.
The workshop was well received by the participants: “it allowed me to delve into a very personal view of my own resilience. In particular how I am dealing with my current PhD progress and my ‘resilience’” (Cheryl Barford, Senior Lecturer in Sports Therapy).
Current issues around resilience in Higher Education (of both academic staff and students) will be explored in a range of development opportunities to be offered in the new Professional Teaching Scheme CPD programme 2016-17.
