In your initial post, due on Day 1 of Week 1, introduce yourself to your classmates and tell your peers about your proposed research study. In your response, address the following: Provide a short synopsis of your research topic. Indicate if you are taking DP II without a break and greeting (most of) the same classmates from DP I. If not, tell us when you first took DP I. Based on the work that you completed on your LOI in DP I, what areas of your LOI do you believe are on track, and what areas require more work? What are your plans to strengthen those areas of the LOI that you believe need more work? In response to the posts of two or more peers, due by Day 7, compare your own starting point for DP II to your peers’ starting points. How are your own successes and challenges different, and what do you think contributed to those differences?
