12/10/2020

Doctoral candidate in Internation Education Lina Heaster-Ekholm and doctoral candidate in Higher Education Jeffrey Edelstein have received dissertation grants from the Graduate School. Congratulations! Read more about their research below.
-
Lina is a doctoral candidate in the International Education concentration. Her research interests lie at the intersection of culture and learning with the goal of developing effective instructional design practices to meet the needs of global online learners. Lina’s proposed dissertation research study involves a multi-round Delphi approach to engage experts in a consensus building process and identify the knowledge, attitudes, and skills instructors need in order to design culturally inclusive online courses. This Graduate School Dissertation Grant will support her research by partially funding the fee for a survey software application specifically designed for Delphi processes.
-
Jeff's work seeks to promote awareness of ableism and the development of disabled community building in college and university settings. His pre-dissertation grant will be put towards a qualitative investigation into the experiences of doctoral students with disabilities through accessible focus groups facilitated over Zoom. He hopes to use this research to set the groundwork for a dissertation focused on disabled students' roles in the development of disability communities.

In response to the enormous pressures faced by faculty and staff, a coalition of offices from around campus are working together to bring the CoJourn Program to UMass Amherst. This 12-week peer-to-peer support program is running in parallel to similar programs running for students.
The CoJourn model was developed by Molly Keehn, Social Justice Education alum, and Karl Henricksen and detailed in their book, CoJourn. People have used the program to focus on things like wellness, managing anxiety, connecting with others, or tackling procrastination. Learn more about the program here: http://ow.ly/3ksh50CqKtI
