From Isolation to Collaboration: A Positive Change for Postgraduate Women?
Conrad, Linda; Phillips, Estelle M.
Higher Education, v30 n3 p313-22 Oct 1995
The use of graduate student support groups to complement the academic advisor's role and reduce students' sense of isolation is examined, particularly for female graduate students. Intersection of research on collaborative groups for thesis-writing and on gender-related communication patterns is examined to suggest how such groups can be structured and used to enhance educational opportunities for all.
