Doctoral Student Colloquium

Drexel University School of Education

The Doctoral Student Colloquium series offer School of Education doctoral students an opportunity to share their original research and learn from their peers, faculty, and staff. Each month, one EdD and one PhD student presents their research at the Colloquium which is offered both on campus at Drexel University and online through Zoom. These sessions help doctoral students to connect with each other and develop a peer community that is invaluable in supporting their journeys in the program. Each doctoral student presenter is also asked to write a Research Brief that relates to his or her presentation which is then included in an edited publication titled "Doctoral Student Research Briefs" published on the School of Education’s website. The Research Brief is a way to disseminate our doctoral students' research as shared in the Colloquium in a concise format with relevance to education. Examples include preliminary or pilot studies, research explorations such as literature reviews, works-in-progress, research issues related to education, or completed research studies.Doctoral Student Colloquiums are held on the first Friday of each month from noon – 1:00 pm (EST) during the academic year at 3401 Market street room 340.
