Session Organizer/Presenters Event Type
Birds of a Feather
TimeWednesday, September 162:45pm - 3:30pm
LocationCarlos Castillo Chavez Room
DescriptionThere are plenty of workshops that discuss how to get into graduate school and about writing dissertations. Getting into a Ph.D. program is the easy part. The question now becomes, how do you develop ideas for your dissertation? Many students drop out before the dissertation phase because they are not able to confidently turn an idea into a dissertation problem. This proposal seeks to create and foster a conversation between innovative thinkers and students for generating ideas about the phase “in-between”: Dissertation Ideas. For this panel, we are bringing subject matter experts from all phases of academia to share how they created ideas for their dissertation as well as how they help others develop ideas. This panel will include individuals ranging from Ph.D. Candidates to Full Professors.
