This week, I found another blog on survival tips for doctoral students. Dr. Patti Mason and I understand the need to find new ways to learn and let go of old habits. We struggled with managing time while juggling work and family obligations. Here’s another look at other ideas to help you survive your doctoral journey. I like some of these suggestions – they dovetail nicely with our tips for a successful academic journey.
Editor’s Note: Dr. Patti Mason wrote this week’s blog to remind us to celebrate your milestones throughout your dissertation journey. We can forget to celebrate the small things we do. When we neglect to acknowledge our milestones and achievements, however small they may seem, we miss a great opportunity to be encouraged to take another step towards a new milestone.
Welcome! Doctor Tales is a new blog to help doctoral students succeed during and beyond their academic journeys.
Welcome! Doctor Tales is a new blog to help doctoral students succeed during and beyond their academic journeys. We are Dr. Bessie DiDomenica (PhD) and Dr. Patricia Mason (DBA), two doctors who took the journey. We recently earned our doctoral degrees and offer our strategies for other doctoral candidates to succeed.
We also embrace our new roles as scholar-practitioners, and encourage others to take their education beyond the classroom.
