Deliberate Practice Approach

Building confidence in your ability to convey your ideas entails frequent writing, constructive feedback, and revision; understanding your strengths and limitations; developing strategies for building on your strengths; and adapting your writing style and process to meet the expectations of your readers. At its best, this is a constant learning process, applying lessons learned from the feedback you receive on the paper you just turned in to the one you will write next week, next month, next semester. You can embrace this challenge by thinking of all the writing you do as deliberate practice.

Embrace the Public Health Writing Challenge

Everyone – no matter how experienced, confident, or anxious you are about your writing – benefits from taking a deliberate practice approach. Writing is difficult. We all struggle. We all need feedback. And we all need to revise. The process has few shortcuts. But working hard at it has many rewards.
