2014 Ph.D. Research Retreat Held at ESU-KCApril 28, 2014
On Saturday, April 26, the School of Library and Information Management, Emporia State University, hosted its annual spring Ph.D. Research Retreat. The theme, “Contextualizing your research: Describing the big picture, providing the background, creating the space or gap for your research,” captured the attention of students and faculty. Guest presenters emphasized the concept of “contextualizing” by highlighting the dissertation research process, research agenda evolution, and use of library resources.
Guest presenters were Dr. Zeni Colorado, associate professor, Instructional Design and Technology, The Teachers College, Emporia State University, and Nikhat Ghouse, associate librarian for Anthropology, Applied English, and Center for Graduate Engagement & Initiatives, University of Kansas Libraries.
Emporia State University’s doctor of philosophy, library and information management, is an interdisciplinary degree with concentrations in instructional design and technology and information systems. A new cohort of Ph.D. students will begin classes in fall 2014.
SLIM hosts a Ph.D. research retreat each fall and spring semester. Members of the Emporia State community are welcome to attend.
