EDAD 743 - Introduction to the Dissertation


Semester Hours: Three
This course focuses on the application of theory and organizational analysis to the strategic planning process of completing the doctoral program and for writing the dissertation. A variety of planning models and processes used by students who have successfully completed the dissertation journey will be introduced. One focus of this course will be to analyze situations using a variety of theories that focus on self-motivation and self-determination. Students will look at their abilities, choices, attitudes, character, and intentionality from Maxwell’s faith-based perspective. Through the use of technological applications, applied research, and case studies, students will learn how to narrow the focus of their study, plan strategically, including time management, make ethical and moral decisions, build a collaborative culture with their colleagues and their dissertation committee, and manage the dissertation process in their professional and personal lives. Students will write an outline of chapters one and two, understand and apply APA, review the essentials of grammar and composition, and review literature related to their study. Case study analysis and field research will serve as essential components in this course.
