Learning: The Experiences of Adults Who Work Full-Time while Attending Graduate School Part-Time
O'Connor, Bridget N.; Cordova, Robert
Journal of Education for Business, v85 n6 p359-368 2010
The experiences of students who are working full-time and going to graduate school part-time were the focus of this phenomenological investigation. Data analysis showed that these individuals, who reported high job involvement and strong career planning, were often stymied when they attempted to apply new ideas to the workplace. Those with strong social and family support reported feeling less stress than did those who did not, and preferred learning experiences in which they were active learners. Results from this exploratory study show that when individual characteristics, the academic environment, and the workplace environment are in alignment, individuals are most supported in becoming all they can be.
