Drop in for dedicated online writing time! Join our weekly Online Writing Community to help mitigate social isolation and write alongside other members of the UBCO community.
We encourage you to have your own research and writing projects ready to work on. The Centre for Scholarly Communication will facilitate short opening and closing discussions and dedicated time for independent writing on your projects, using the Pomodoro technique.
Sessions are open to all members of the UBCO community, including undergraduate students, graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, and faculty.
What to expect from a session:
- Meet other members of the UBCO community. We will encourage you to introduce yourself on camera or in the Zoom chat. (10-15 minutes)
- Work on your research and writing projects separately. You can turn off your camera and microphone and work on your projects on your own, with short breaks in between writing times. You can always ask us questions during the writing time in the Zoom chat. (1 hour 45 minutes of writing time, in 25 minutes intervals with short breaks)
Sessions occur weekly on Tuesdays from 1-3 p.m and Fridays from 8-10 a.m.
