The dissertation phase of a candidate’s journey to earning a doctorate is exhilarating, fun, and rewarding. However, the path to a successful dissertation defense can also be strewn with obstacles, especially when conflicts occur between candidates and their chairs. In part, conflicts can result from inconsistent expectations, lack of communication, or disagreements among committee members.
This webinar presents ideas to help doctoral candidates productively manage these conflicts so they can focus their attention on their goals of conducting meaningful research.
