Webinars: Graduate Students

Introduction

These webinars focus on types of papers specific to graduate students, including master’s and doctoral students. Graduate students will benefit from webinars in other categories as well.

The webinars in this category are appropriate for Walden's master's and doctoral students.

If you are working on a longer research project, including a KAM, final master's essay, a master's thesis, or any writing project that spans multiple weeks and is more than 25 pages long, we recommend the webinar "Writing Process for Longer Research Projects" found in the doctoral capstone webinar series.

Writing at the Graduate Level

We are not born knowing how to write academically, and you did not enter graduate school knowing how to write like a graduate student. After all, writing is a learning process. This session will discuss the characteristics of scholarly writing, giving you strategies to elevate your writing to graduate school expectations.

Graduate Level Writing for Master's Students

Beginning a master’s degree can be a daunting task. You not aren’t just learning about a field, but are becoming a part of the field you are studying, engaging in more advanced research and writing within your field. In this webinar you’ll be introduced to the how the Writing Center can help you with your writing along the way.

Literature Review and Annotated Bibliography Basics

Wonder what constitutes a literature review in a course paper? Confused about how this review differs from an annotated bibliography? This webinar addresses the basic elements of these two assignments and what it means to synthesize and evaluate your scholarly sources.

Annotated Bibliographies

This session discusses the do's and don'ts of annotated bibliographies using examples. This session is relevant for all KAM students (the Depth section), as well as any other graduate students who will be or have completed an annotated bibliography as part of their course work. We also explain how annotated bibliographies can be used by all writers as a way to take notes and organize research. If you are currently writing or will write a large research paper, this is the webinar for you!

Writing for the MAT, MSEd, EdD, & EdS Major Assessments

Major assessments are required components of some education programs, but they require a specific writing style to complete. In this session, we will provide tips for writing successfully in your major assessments.
