Discussion 1: Hopes, Challenges, and Strategies
As you begin your studies at Walden, you have probably thought about what you hope to gain from the program of study you will complete. What are your hopes and aspirations as an emerging professional beginning graduate-level study? Apart from a degree in psychology, also think about what you will gain from engaging with the scholarly community at Walden University. Your Program of Study (POS) document can help you anticipate the topics you will learn about and perhaps the kinds of skills you will master as you complete your graduate degree.
This week, you will discuss potential challenges you and your classmates foresee in the coming weeks. Together, you can share strategies that could help you overcome these challenges, as a group and individually.
This dialogue through the Discussion Board is designed to connect you with your new colleagues so that you can develop community and engage with each other in a supportive manner as you begin the educational journey together.
To prepare for this Discussion:
Locate and download your Program of Study (POS) from your Field of Study tab, found in the left navigation menu.
Review Waldens mission and vision statements and Waldens goals and values in this weeks Learning Resources.
Explore the web page Social Change, located in this weeks Learning Resources.
Reflect on what you hope to achieve as a graduate student personally, professionally, and within the larger community.
Consider factors that could pose a challenge to the successful completion of your chosen degree.
Reflect on your values, ideals, and goals in relation to what you have learned about Walden.
Think about how you will incorporate a commitment to social change, particularly as it relates to the area(s) of interest represented by your program/specialization, into your professional, personal, and academic goals.
With these thoughts in mind:
Post : a description of at least two expectations that you have about your program (e.g., something you hope to get out of the graduate program, for yourself, your family, or your community). Apply those expectations and hopes to Waldens mission, vision, and values. Then, describe at least two challenges or barriers you foresee in completing your degree. Share and explain at least one strategy you will use to help you overcome those challenges that might also be useful to your colleagues. Then explain why you chose this particular field of study at Walden and how you intend to use your degree.
