Doctoral Students in a Distance Program: Advising and Degree Completion Strategies
Grady, Marilyn L.
Journal of Academic Administration in Higher Education, v12 n2 p49-52 Fall 2016
The purpose of this manuscript is to suggest strategies for advising doctoral students in an online doctoral program in educational leadership and higher education. The strategies are based on experiences with 33 doctoral students who completed their doctoral degrees 1992-2016. The strategies for doctoral advising offered in this manuscript are based on a long term commitment to helping students complete their doctoral programs. To advance this commitment, a doctoral advising approach was developed (Grady & Hoffman, 2007). This approach was designed to address the issue of attrition among doctoral students.
