This last week of class, you may have ideas about steps in the Dissertation process that may feel challenging, and questions for the Instructor on any one of a number of topics from the course. This is your chance to ask for feedback, support, and insight in meeting challenges, and for clarification of other questions or concerns from the Instructor. Your Discussion thread post likely will benefit everyone in class.
Although you will identify challenges you anticipate, and support or ideas would be useful, it is important, as well, to understand the next steps and the entire process. In this Discussion, you will describe anticipated challenges in the Dissertation process, request support and ideas from your colleagues, and ask any questions you may have on next steps.
To prepare for this Discussion, review the Dissertation Process Worksheet, listed in your Learning Resources, together with other Dissertation resources, including the article Six Things Your Dissertation Director Wishes You Knew. This Worksheet outlines all the steps in the Dissertation process and will be your guide throughout your program.
Describe any factors you anticipate will present challenges in the next steps in the Dissertation process, in terms of time, other obligations, and so on.
Describe support and ideas that would be helpful to you.
Post your questions on any topic in the course and on next steps in the Dissertation process.
