DEVELOPING A PROFESSIONAL & SCHOLARLY IDENTITY 

Identifying who we are as scholars and professionals requires reflection on who we are and how we want to make a positive difference in our communities. Attend one of the following sessions to explore more deeply who you are as a scholar-practitioner.

I: ESTABLISHING A RESEARCH OR PRACTITIONER AGENDA

Learn from scholars about the importance of integrating our values, interests, passions, and experiences into an agenda for our research and practice. In this session, doctoral students will learn strategies to cultivate a research or practitioner agenda as a doctoral student, including the steppingstones to building an agenda over time.

II: ON BEING CRITICAL

Scholars will share perspectives on what it means to develop a critical approach to both practice and scholarship, starting or continuing with our dissertation research and extending beyond our doctoral programs. In this session, students will consider the importance of being critical in your roles as researchers and practitioners.

III: ARTICULATING POSITIONALITY

Scholars are increasingly asked to articulate the positionality they hold relative to their research and practice. Learn about what a positionality statement is and why one matters, reflect on finding your voice and articulating your positionality, and consider how your positionality intersects with your research and practice.

2:55–3:05pm

CREATE COMMUNITY!

Join a breakout room to connect with doctoral students who are at a similar place in their program: New Doctoral Students, Somewhere in the Middle, and Almost Done!

3:05–3:50pm

DOCTORAL STUDENT SUCCESS STRATEGIES

Learn from scholars about doctoral student success strategies for every stage of a doctoral program, including time management and tips for productivity, disseminating your dissertation research, and preparing your career materials for the role you want.

I: TIME MANAGEMENT AND PRODUCTIVITY

Managing our time and staying productive as a doctoral student can be challenging when we also must balance our work, family, and personal commitments. In this session, scholars will share what strategies they put in place to stay focused throughout their doctoral programs, including maintaining a focus on self-care.

II: SHARING YOUR RESEARCH

How will you share your research so it makes a positive difference in the community you hope to serve? In this session, doctoral students will learn about opportunities for disseminating one’s scholarship so it reaches other scholars and practitioners who can build on your study or use your findings to inform their practice.  

III: PREPARING YOUR APPLICATION MATERIALS

Faculty and practitioner roles often require a letter of interest; a resume or curriculum vitae; and statements on diversity, leadership, and more. In this session, learn from scholars about how to prepare your career materials so you stand out above other applicants and have a higher likelihood of being offered the position you want.
