Helping Students Transition From Coursework to Capstone
Doctoral capstone documents, such as dissertations or doctoral or project studies, present unique challenges to student writers. Although their coursework prepares them for these challenges, there are new skills and approaches students will need to complete this longer, higher-stakes writing project. In this webinar, Writing Center staff members outline skills, resources, and strategies for preparing for the writing challenges of a capstone, with advice on how committees and other faculty can support students in acquiring them.
“Standard Academic English” at Walden University: Opportunities for Our Unique Setting (Part 2 in a Series)
In this Writing Center-led session, participants will reflect on ways to question assumptions about Standard Academic English in their work with Walden students. Participants will engage in hands-on activities to develop goals that they can individually pursue and consider systemic goals they can work towards. This session builds on concepts introduced in the first part of this series.
All webinars are in Eastern Time.
All Writing Center webinars are free for Walden students to attend. Students can attend as many webinars as they are able and would like to join.
