|With my Dissertation Committee Chairperson Dr. Uhry|
This can include mini-research projects from courses, research apprenticeship projects and portions of dissertations.
It is a poster session format with folks milling about and informally chatting with one another about their work. I love these things because it gives me an opportunity to talk with other doctoral students, get their feedback and network.
This session was particularly fruitful for me as I was able to exchange information with two women who have contacts at schools and programs I want to involve in my study.
Aside from the professional aspect, it is wonderful to chat with friends over hors d'oeuvres, take pictures, laugh and commiserate. Earning a Ph.D. is an exciting, difficult and long journey and it's nice to know I'm not alone.
