How to be a hackademic pictureHybrid Pedagogy’s Jesse Stommel and our very own Charlotte Frost rethink academic life and writing productivity in this on-going series of hints, tips and hacks.

If you can’t go cold turkey, then try logging off for half an hour at a time or if you need a bit of bullying, try loading an application that blocks the internet during working hours. Have you got those square eyes your mother always warned you about? Maybe you need some of what this tip has to offer?
