Thesis Design & Proposal
Tools & Hacks
Averaging 130 webinars each year, PD.Education (DoctoralNet) tracked 10,872 graduate students who collectively watched 4K+ hours of webinars in the Fall, Spring, and Summer of 2020-2021. The subtleties of academic work they explored centered on the 10 categories of our library of content.
Big hitters this year were:
“Beginning and Expanding the Literature Review”, “How to make a persistent personal change”, “Skills to Ace Graduate School - Self-Regulation Skills”, “Edit Before Hiring an Editor (& APA Shortcuts)”, “Hitting the Mark: Finishing your Dissertation or Thesis on Time, on Task, and with Rigor”, and “THE MEAL PLAN : The #1 food for academic writing”.
Your students look to you for support. We provide digital solutions. One Dean called our solution a "Netflix for Graduate work". The PD.Education portals, powered by DoctoralNet, provide students with immediate access to self assessment tools as well as the range of opportunities for learning and engagement described on this page.
Short courses make use of synchronous and pre-recorded webinars and other types of content for adult learners. Arranged in modules, the content points you to the subtleties of these topics.
Whether you learn socially, through watching videos, reading text, or completing tasks, each module provides learning experiences to help navigate the intricacies of graduate research and writing.
Remote dissertation-writing Bootcamps generally take place over several weeks or months with separate working groups for students focused on their research proposal (pre-proposal group) and for those who have completed data collection (post data group). In addition to a structured curriculum, Bootcamps include live coaching sessions to address emergent problems students face in real time. Ask us about Bootcamp outcomes and how our modular program design allows you to be creative when targeting key learner issues.
Students may be curious or confused about important topics such as argumentation. Video snippets curate sections of larger webinars to provide a quick overview and tempt students to learn more.
There are multiple ways to help students find what they need including: opt-ins, box sets, and downloads. A comprehensive set of accessible online tools for your students.
Students take the webinars with them wherever they go.
