There are two facets to the academic world: practice and publish. All educators desire to Practice what they know, that is teach in the classroom. However, in academia emphasis seems to be placed on publishing, sometimes more than the former, especially when it comes to career advancement. Therefore, it is of utmost importance that we learn how to do research, write academically and eventually publish our research in academic journals. So, how do we do this? It seems daunting and a little off-putting at first glance, but this session will give you invaluable tips and secrets, from an insider’s perspective, which will put you more at ease with the process by giving you the knowledge and tools you need to succeed in this publish or perish world of academia (as well as prepare you for your dissertation work).
Ryan Boylan is a doctoral student in Language and Literacy at George State University and his research interest include Foreign Language Education, specifically how the teaching of language in a cultural context influences language proficiency among students.
After the presentation, Ryan’s PowerPoint presentation will be made available.
