Weatherly, Gail; Egan, Toby
Online Submission, Paper presented at the Academy of Human Resource Development International Research Conference in The Americas (Indianapolis, IN, Feb 28-Mar 4, 2007)
The purpose of this article is to review the personal development and transformation of women earning an online degree and to what extent their goals were met through earning the degree. Eighteen adult women who earned a fully online master's degree at least one year ago from a university affiliated with the Southern Regional Education Board were interviewed. Analysis of the data indicates earning the degree resulted in greater-than-expected transformational change, personal development, and autonomy. (Contains 1 table.)
