"Building your prolific academic writing practice" is a course designed to help you build a successful and sustainable writing practice—and thereby support the foundation of any academic career. We all know that academics are, first of all, writers. And yet, if we take an honest look at our schedules, evidence for this is hard to find. This is problematic, as academic careers are hugely dependent on our publication output and, therefore, our writing process.
This course has been made "by academic, for academics" and the teachings are equally applicable to students, academics, and technical writers across the domains. We know the struggles of academics, because we are in the same situation. And we also know what helps, as we have implemented these practices ourselves and successfully coached numerous others to up their writing game.
The course combines time-tested input with reflective exercises to contextualize the strategies to your very individual life. Through engaging with the course instructors, you also have the chance to get personalized advice on how to adapt the teachings of the course to fit your personal circumstances.
Join now to receive valuable tips of how to build that writing habit that will make a key difference in your career, whether within academia or outside; start reflecting on this input in a guided fashion to adapt these tips and make them your own.
Who this course is for:
- Students of all disciplines

Hi there, my name is Dominik E. Froehlich, PhD and I am an award winning researcher and Higher Ed teacher. My work focuses on research methodology; especially social network analysis and mixed methods research.
Concerning social network analysis: I am an active researcher of social networks for quite a few years now. I mostly study networks in the domain of learning and instruction, but occasionally I ventured to other fields, such as organization and management. I'm well published in this field in terms of academic articles, I'm editing a book about social network analysis with a well-known publisher, and my work on social networks has won international academic awards.
