Filed under: Dissertation Topic Exploration — Cyndy @ 2:07 pm

I interviewed Susan yesterday to gain insights into her dissertation journey. She noted that her dissertation topic involved a potential career purpose. Knowing that she would finish her doctoral degree in a career field that sometimes values youth, she wanted to make sure she had a specialty where she would not be considered “too old.”  She studied the older returning graduate student. 

With these two things in mind, age and long-term career opportunities, I think it might be wise to consider a dissertation topic that focuses on learning in the online environment. I have always been interested in that topic. Since it is a realatively new environment there is not likely to be a lot of research already done on the topic, and an individual teaching in an online environment can be any age.
