Building a Research Pipeline in Strategic Human Capital

Saturday, September 22, 2018
09:00 - 12:00 h

Paris Marriott Rive Gauche - Studio E

sponsored by the Strategic Human Capital Interest Group 

Workshop Information

This half-day workshop is intended to help doctoral students develop a strategic human capital (SHC) related research project from raw idea to an executed study. A secondary purpose is to help doctoral students with SHC interests to connect with each other and build potential future collaborations through their associations during the session. The workshop will include two components:

a. Research Development Session

This breakout session provides opportunities for participants to discuss and receive feedback on their research project in an informal setting. As part of the application process, participants will submit a short abstract of a research project that outlines the idea and stage of the project. Participants will be teamed with a senior SHC scholar who will help them think about their projects in new ways and provide suggestions for the implementation of their research ideas.

The workshop organizers will assign participants to a senior scholar.  Prior to the workshop, participants will receive the research projects of the other group members and will be instructed to prepare comments and feedback on the other projects. They will exchange feedback during the research development portion of the workshop. The assigned senior scholar will moderate the discussion and provide expert feedback on each research project.

b. Senior Faculty Panel

Senior faculty panelists will discuss critical aspects of the research and publication process, ways to craft a successful research program, future directions in SHC research, and other questions of concern for doctoral students in this area.
