Hi from the Austin Research Intensive!

Fielding students and alumni from around the U.S. and Canada converged in Austin, Texas, in early November for a 3-day intensive dissertation workshop. Fielding’s School of Leadership Studies held the in-person event at the Hilton Garden Inn in north Austin on November 9 – 11, 2023ե֭. The event focused on helping attendees learn how to advance their research and work on all aspects of their dissertations.

The main session also included small peer groups for those in similar stages of their dissertation process: the concept stage, proposal, and those with approved proposals currently working on collecting, analyzing, and writing up data for their dissertations.

Program Director for the EdD doctorate, Dr. Barbara Mink, Program Director for Human Development and Organizational Development, Dr. Kathy Geller, and several other School of Leadership Studies faculty Lenneal Henderson, Malcolm North, and Earl Thomas, along with SLS alumni, were in attendance and worked with attendees in individual one-to-one sessions on their dissertation methodology, literature review, data analysis, and developing Chapters 4 and 5 of the dissertations.
