For neurodiverse staff, students and colleagues from around Albertopolis.
As Professor Sara Rankin says:
As someone neurodiverse, I’m great at coming up with innovative research ideas and establishing great collaborations, but after the thrill of the journey, comes the challenge of translating the creative process, new concepts and exciting data, into linear text.
The very thought of the process leaves me bored, uninspired and deflated. As a consequence, very often, I move onto the next exciting project instead. This is not a recipe for a successful research career as an academic.
I know I am not alone, many neurodiverse people I talk to, have similar issues with ‘writing up’.
In this informal workshop, we plan to have frank and honest discussions about:
- What, specifically about the writing process we find challenging.
- Exchange strategies we have used to overcome some of these challenges.
- Consider in an ideal world what would help us to be more efficient/effective writers.
- Brainstorm how we could replace the need to ‘write up’ with other modes of communication.
Join the Neurodiversity in Albertopolis Network to vent your frustration, empathise with your neurotribe and discuss with other creative problem solvers how we can make changes that will help us find this all a bit easier!
