Recommendations for Thematic Issue on Kinesiology Doctoral Students' Perspectives
Lund, Jackie L.; Napper-Owen, Gloria; Boyce, B. Ann
Quest, v71 n3 p342-346 2019
In this thematic issue, we examined Doctoral Students' (DS) perspectives on six topics: (a) dissertation, (b) teacher training, (c) research training, (d) advisors, (e) doctoral program and department, and (f) career perspectives (past DS). Each topic was viewed through three lenses: (a) status (past and current DS), (b) gender, and (c) sub-disciplines (SBS and HS). We offer the following recommendations: (a) align program requirements with skills and knowledge needed for success after graduation; (b) develop mentoring programs that address research, teaching, and service to prepare DS for life after the degree; (c) intentionally add DS voices to the conversation about doctoral studies and other professional debates; and (d) develop questions and select criteria for potential DS, so they have the necessary information to make an informed decision about a program that fits their career goals.
