The Writing Portfolio

In place of the traditional dissertation, our practice-oriented doctoral program focuses on developing a portfolio of written products–anchored by and around the case study, and building towards an Engaged Scholarship Project, that we believe are more relevant and useful for working clinicians. Students will create and maintain their own professional WordPress project, to be interlinked with the DSW Website, as both a digital ‘home’ for their continued scholarship and a venue for conversation among peers, as they establish a unique web presence, and hone and refine critical digital literacy skills.
