Navigating the Dissertation: Strategies for New Doctoral Advising Faculty and Their Advisees
This book examines the intricacies of the doctoral educational process and delineates a process for continuous improvement that will shape and enhance better professional relationships between dissertation advisors and their advisees, and cultivate opportunities for increased retention and graduation. The book includes critical principles, interwoven with students' real-life experiences, which serve as illustrative vehicles. Moreover, it has an innovative approach-a book that works equally well for new advisors and their advisees or for seasoned advisors seeking new ways to communicate with their advisees-departing from the traditional one dimensional view, usually from the student's perspective. Whereas the titles of many of these other books are couched in metaphors of survival and overcoming a threat, the author centers her book on strong initiatives that will lead to timely graduation in a supportive and encouraging environment. This book offers innovative and pioneering leadership approaches to transport advisors and advisees to successful outcomes.
