 EdD Students as Writers: Cultivating Healthy Writing Practices Across the EdD Program

Date: Friday, June 24, 2022

Time: 1:00 - 2:00 PM ET

One of the toughest transitions for students in our EdD program is making the leap from writing as something they do to being a Writer. In our experience, students who embrace the role of Writer approach the work with less fanfare, show up and do the work, and write consistently enough to complete the dissertation. Comparatively, students who see writing as a necessary evil, an obstacle standing between them and the degree, tend to drag their feet on writing projects, write inconsistently, and have a very difficult time with completing the dissertation. In this session, we will share program strategies and facilitate discussion about supporting EdD students as they develop healthy writing practices.
