Program Description
Thinking about furthering your education?  Then this webinar is for you.  There are as many paths to education as there are students, and every path has particular considerations, expectations and results. The path to scholar-practitioner is interesting because it prepares the professional to work in their discipline of choice and enables them to approach their profession as a scholar as well, bringing to their work different views that can be enriching for the scholar-practitioner and those they lead. A brief review of the process for identifying, applying and completing a doctoral degree will be presented with time to discuss the degree journey.

Participants will learn:

  • Recommendations for investigating academic programs
  • Methods for aligning current work with future academic pursuits
  • Tips to align expectations with reality
  • What to expect on an academic journey
