It is time to review your writing process by examining where you were when you started the course and by looking ahead to any further needs.
Your perception of your writing process needs may have changed since the beginning of the course. How have your needs have changed, and what goals will you set for yourself as you continue your scholarly career? Here, you will take these findings and use them to identify strategies and goals that are specific, measureable, attainable, realistic, andtimely (S.M.A.R.T.) to help you continue advancing your scholarly writing.
To prepare for this Discussion:
- Review your Self-Assessment from the Week 1 Discussion, and consider how your goals might be tailored to further develop your scholarly writing.
- Review the Top Achievement website in the Learning Resources. Consider what S.M.A.R.T. goals are and how you can develop your own S.M.A.R.T. goals to help you move forward in your dissertation/doctoral process.
- Develop at least three S.M.A.R.T. goals to help you advance your scholarly writing. Use the S.M.A.R.T. model to ensure your goals are realistic.
- Determine which Learning Resources might be appropriate to help you continue to improve your scholarly writing.
By Day 3
Post your three S.M.A.R.T. goals, and explain how these goals will help you move forward in your scholarly writing. Explain the barriers you might encounter that may hinder accomplishing your goals. Also, explain how you might address these barriers to completing your goals.
Note: Be sure to support your post with specific references to the resources. If you are using additional articles, be sure to provide full APA-formatted citations for your references.
