Exploring the Impact of the Dissertation in Practice significantly contributes to our understanding of the design and impact of the Dissertation in Practice, the capstone of professional practice doctoral programs. Chapter authors are to be commended for sharing with the reader a broad and reflective view of their dissertation journey, and as a consequence give the reader insight into the nature of professional practice doctorate education in the early 21st century. Readers have the opportunity to hear firsthand how the dissertation is changing not only in format but also in the impact it makes in the field. Faculty and program graduates share accounts of their scholarly practice; the problems of practice that they have encountered and addressed in their professional practice; and their evolving role as change agents in their field of practice. In the process, they assist all faculty involved in designing and evaluating professional practice programs by identifying challenges and opportunities for construction of powerful end?of?program doctoral work. Individually and collectively chapter authors reflect on their experiences in creating practice?anchored and intellectually rigorous Dissertation in Practice. The editor, Dr. Valerie A. Storey, has divided the book into two sections. The first focused on reflections of faculty and the second on reflections of program graduates as they describe how the Dissertation in Practice process develops scholarly practitioner graduates capacity to lead systemic reform.

Research shows that five strategies correlate with the successful completion of a dissertation: establishing a consistent writing routine; working with a support group; consulting your advisor; understanding your committee's expectations; and setting a realistic and timely schedule Building on these insights, this book is for anyone who needs help in preparing for, organizing, planning, scheduling, and writing the longest sustained writing project they have encountered, particularly if he or she is not receiving sufficient guidance about the process, but also for anyone looking to boost his or her writing productivity. The author uncovers much tacit knowledge, provides advice on working with dissertation advisors and committee members, presents proven techniques for the prewriting and writing stages of the dissertation, sets out a system for keeping on schedule, and advocates enlisting peer support. This book presents a system of straightforward and proven techniques that are used by productive writers, and applies them to the dissertation process. In particular, it promotes the concept of writing networks - whether writing partners or groups - to ensure that writing does not become an isolated and tortured process, while not hiding the need for persistence and sustained effort. This book is intended for graduate students and their advisers in the social sciences, the humanities, and professional fields. It can further serve as a textbook for either informal writing groups led by students or for formal writing seminars offered by departments or graduate colleges. The techniques described will help new faculty advice their students more effectively and even achieve greater fluency in their own writing.

A Step by Step Guide on Writing the Dissertation

This book is a significant step towards helping doctoral learners write better proposals and the final dissertation. The book walks the learner through all the sections of my dissertation and describes, paragraph-by-paragraph, how each section may be written succinctly and correctly. Although my original dissertation was a qualitative single case study, students can relate the step-by-step directions in the book to their own qualitative studies regardless of their specific research design. Although all learners pursuing qualitative studies would benefit from the book, those pursuing a case study design, or a descriptive design would benefit the most. If you are planning to use the thematic data analysis in your qualitative doctoral research, you will find this book most helpful. I also recommend that you get the 4-Step Thematic Data Analysis with MAXQDA textbook for the complete, step-by-step walk-through of how to analyze your qualitative data. In this book, Chapters 1 through 3 are aimed at those working on the Prospectus and on the Proposal whereas Chapters 4 and 5 are aimed at those working on the final Dissertation.
