Description:

Written for doctoral students in education, The Education Dissertation provides a step-by-step process for developing and completing an academically rigorous dissertation in a time-efficient manner.Grounded in adult learning theory about adult students as engaged learners who bring a wealth of experience and knowledge to their studies, this resource provides both the “big picture” framework and the nitty-gritty details-everything from the dissertation timeline and the use of technology to articulating a research topic, doing a literature review, choosing a research method, conducting the research, writing the dissertation, and defending and publishing the dissertation.
