Brown Bag discussion with Dr. Rebecca Michel

Tonight, Wednesday, January 17th  the EdD Program will host a Brown Bag discussion with Dr. Rebecca Michel. The event will take place from 4:20pm – 5:20pm in the College of Education (LL 101). Although the event is hosted by the Doctoral Program, faculty agreed that the topic and discussion would be fruitful for many graduate students.

The event will also be available via live stream. You can access the live stream here: 

Dr. Michel will discuss recent qualitative research studies which investigated issues related to career & educational development, cultural immersion, and relationship satisfaction. She will highlight different qualitative traditions, including Phenomenology, Grounded Theory, Consensual Qualitative Research (CQR), and Participatory Action Research (PAR). Dr. Michel will also recommend strategies for clarifying research questions, working with research teams, conducting interviews, establishing trustworthiness, and publishing qualitative research.

Dr. Michel is an Assistant Professor within the DePaul College of Education. She earned a PhD in Counselor Education and Supervision from Old Dominion University. Her research explores how cultural, relational, educational, and career factors impact identity, well-being, and life satisfaction. She has worked as a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor within higher education, K-12 schools, and community settings. Dr. Michel recently co-edited the book Creative Career Counseling Interventions with Diverse Populations (Killam, Degges-White & Michel, 2016).

We hope to see you there!
