The dissertation stage is a critical time in the development of a scholar’s research capabilities and her or his scholarly identity. Receiving sage advice, personalized guidance, and the opportunity to network with more senior scholars during this time provides a vital entry point into a community devoted to the advancement of high- quality research. Given that there is no “boilerplate” (Pratt, 2009) for qualitative research, doctoral students who have chosen to use qualitative methods for their research especially require tailored attention. In this PDW, students at all phases of the dissertation process— proposal, data collection, analysis, and defense—will be invited to receive personalized feedback from faculty facilitators on their study as well as career advice. Facilitators will include established scholars who have published qualitative research in top- tier journals and who have experience managing careers as qualitative researchers. Students will be matched with facilitators based on qualitative method, research interest, and/or level of analysis. In addition to practical guidance on methods, students will also have the opportunity to network with qualitative scholars.
