What is the ACW Academic Coaching Program?
The ACW Academic Coaching Program is a 12-week individualized program designed to support you to grow as a scholar, take charge of your career, balance competing demands, and provide accountability to help you achieve your goals. ACW Academic Coaches provide tenure coaching, productivity coaching, academic branding, publication coaching, and career coaching.
- Tenure coaching helps you prioritize your goals, create a tenure and career plan, and identify the tools and resources you need to succeed.
- Productivity coaching encourages you to create a sacred writing practice and provides accountability to help you attain your writing goals.
- Academic branding guides you to develop a vision of your unique contribution (your “brand,”), a plan to actualize your brand, and a platform consistent with your brand.
- Academic publication coaching provides an opportunity for dialogue about your writing, helps you discover your authorial voice, and mentors you as you take steps toward publishing in scholarly journals and presses.
- Academic career coaching helps you articulate your strategy, whether you are entering academia, preparing for promotion, or exploring how to transition into a non-academic career.
How does the ACW Academic Coaching Program work?
At ACW, we believe academic success is a team effort, so we have structured the ACW Academic Coaching Program to include:
- Weekly Coaching Calls. Meet with an ACW Academic Coach each week for an hour to brainstorm how to boost your writing productivity or how to prepare for, advance, or exit a career in academia. Your ACW Academic Coach can help you create an action plan and support you as you take steps toward reaching your goals.
- Virtual Daily Writing Room. Join a structured writing community where you learn to break down your weekly tasks into small assignments, track your writing progress, and are held accountable in a supportive environment facilitated by experienced moderators.
- ACW Webinar Series. Participate in instructive webinars to learn the skills you need to become a more productive academic writer and achieve your academic career goals.
