Webinars: Writing for Social Change

Introduction

These webinars discuss ways that students can use writing to explore and express their vision for social change.

Also visit the Career Services Center's social change archived webinars.

The webinars in this category are appropriate for all Walden students.

Exploring Perspectives

Join us for a discussion of perspectives: In the first half of this webinar, students will participate in developing definitions of social change, encompassing diverse perspectives of how we can envision social change. In the second half of this webinar, we will discuss how writing connects to social change and how to take a social change perspective in your writing.

Students will leave this webinar with a better sense of their own definition of social change, as well as how writing can help them achieve that social change. 

Blogging

This webinar is the second in the Writing Center's Writing for Social Change series.

We give students a brief overview of the blog medium and show how Walden students can use blogging as an opportunity for writing outside of academia. This will include tips for exploring new ideas, developing existing ideas, and extending ideas beyond course assignments. Students will learn from different kinds of blogs, leaving this webinar with an understanding of how blogging differs from academic writing, as well as how they can make the most of this medium.

Grant Proposals

This webinar is the third in the Writing Center's Writing for Social Change series.

Sometimes achieving social change requires support from others. This webinar will give you tips for communicating your goals for social change through grant proposals, introducing you to this genre of writing. While we will not provide tips for finding grants, you will be able to use this webinar to help you communicate your social change vision to others in the grant format.
