Last week the 2020 CPED Virtual Convening took place. The theme this year was REIMAGINING & RECONSTRUCTING THE DISSERTATION IN PRACTICE: Dismantling the hegemonic practices of establishing knowledge in the education profession. I was on the program committee and over the past several months have been working with a great team from ASU and CPED to move the convening to its first ever virtual format. In addition to the work with the committee, I spearheaded the first ever Student Research Forum. The student forum was fantastic and I hope something that will become a regular feature of CPED Convenings. in the future.
During the conference I presented a Learning Exchange session with the amazing friend and colleague Danah Henriksen. Our session was centered around how advisors can foster creative mindsets for mentoring innovative dissertations. Our slides are below, along with the reference list. Over the next few weeks, recordings of the sessions will be released by CPED – so stay tuned to their Vimeo page for additional resources coming out from the convening. The conference theme (and resulting discussions) have certainly sparked even more ideas on my end and I’m very excited to work with students (and faculty) interested in pushing the boundaries of the shape and form of dissertations by and for scholarly practitioners.
