Prospectus & Proposal Workshop

Course level: Graduate

This course continues the formal development of the student’s dissertation. This development will be ongoing throughout the curriculum and result in the dissertation’s submission at the end of the program. Topics in the course include problem statements, research questions, hypotheses and testing, populations and samples, and the intended contribution of the study to the profession and society. The outcome of this course is Chapter 1 of the dissertation that articulates a specific goal and plan that will evolve into the learner’s dissertation. Competencies: Demonstrate an understanding of institutional processes and expectations for completing a doctoral dissertation. Examine ethical considerations (protection of participants, risks to participants, threats of researcher bias, threats of participant bias, etc.) for a research study. Use CITI Training to support the development of ethical considerations. Refine Chapter 1 (The Introduction) to clarify the background/statement of the problem, purpose/significance of the study, hypotheses, research design, theoretical framework, assumptions, limitations, scope, and definition of terms. Continue to develop Chapter 2 (Review of the Literature) by articulating knowledge gaps in a selected field through a synthesis of relevant literature. Refine Chapter 3 (Methodology) by clarifying research design, participants, methodology, data analysis, assumptions, and limitations.
