Annual DM Research Symposium

To welcome our students and kick off the spring semester, the annual DM Research Symposium was held on January 16, 2019. To start the day, Kalle Lyytinen greeted everyone in attendance and at the end of the day, he also provided his valuable comments in an overview of the day-long session.

Twenty-six students presented  the status of their qualitative or quantitative research at the Symposium. Please see the list of presentations here. The dissemination of research is one of the most important pieces of doctoral education.  A key benefit of this activity is that students find feedback from peers and advisors to be very valuable throughout the research journey.

First year students attended the presentations as well to learn about all the fascinating, rigorous and relevant research that is ongoing within the program. 

Each presentation included the following in a 12-minute timed presentation:
  1. Problem of practice 
  2. Research question(s) and the theoretical framework or hypothesized model
  3. Description of the sample and any other relevant methodological details
  4. Emergent results and supporting data analytics 
  5. Implications of the results 
  6. Limitations and future research
  7. 3-5 key references
