Workshop Student Testimonials

"This course helped me better understand various facets of writing that I have not been exposed to before such as synthesis, voice, and paraphrasing.  A couple of these items were skimmed over in my earlier courses, but this course went into the depth I needed."

"I have gotten more from these past couple of weeks than from several semesters in 8090."

"This is probably one of the best assistance programs that Walden University offers to date. I have made more progress in the past 5 weeks than I did in the past two quarters. This workshop is a must for anyone struggling to stay focused or on task with dissertation writing."

"I really want this option for the rest of my program. It has made this very difficult process much much better."

"I believe that this should be a required course after the 8100 courses.  It could reduce the amount of time that students spend writing their doctoral study."

 

NEW: Preproposal Doctoral Writing Workshop and Revision Workshop on the Postproposal Sections

The Center for Student Success is excited to announce two new workshops:

The preproposal doctoral writing workshop is for doctoral students who are about to start working on their preproposal document (e.g., premise, prospectus) and find themselves needing writing guidance and support. The workshop on revising and editing the postproposal sections is for doctoral students who have a working draft of the postproposal sections (e.g., results, discussion, conclusion, recommendations) of their dissertation, project, or doctoral study but find themselves needing writing guidance and support (NOTE: Students must already have an approved proposal to be eligible for this workshop). 

Proposal Revision Workshops

The Center for Student Success offers dissertation/doctoral study/capstone workshops to help students revise and edit their overall proposal, introduction, literature review, methods section, and postproposal sections.
