2022 CDS Alumni Collaborative Projects - Call for Participation - Deadline January 23, 2022

The purpose of CDS Alumni Collaborative Projects is to:

  • Develop collaboration among the alumni with various research skills.
  • Investigate CDS alumni and student issues and challenges; and
  • Publish and present project results in a peer-reviewed venue.

CDS Alumni SIG established CDS Alumni Collaborative Projects in 2018. All research members are CDS doctoral alumni. 

CDS Alumni Collaborative Projects are established and supported by Dr. Mansureh Kebritchi, Chair of the Center for Educational and Instructional Technology (CEITR) and leader of CDS Alumni SIG. Additionally, Dr. Louise Underdahl, co-leader of CDS Alumni SIG, supports the projects.       

Traditionally, CDS Alumni Collaborative Fellowship Projects have been offered in the following four research topics.  For 2022, these topics are optional - suggestions are welcome!

  • CDS alumni professional/career development needs/issues/challenges (mixed methods or quantitative)
  • CDS alumni scholarly development needs/issues/challenges (mixed methods or quantitative)
  • CDS doctoral student needs, experiences, and issues (mixed methods or quantitative study)
  • Open topic aligned with the applicant’s research interest (quantitative, qualitative, or mixed methods)

Each CDS Alumni Collaborative Fellowship Project team comprises a team leader/fellow and 2 other team members. Fellows will be alumni researchers with a track record of at least 2 peer reviewed publications within the last 5 years who would be willing to mentor and work with other 2 alumni researchers to develop and complete the projects. The team members will enhance their research skills by working closely with a more experienced researcher while the team leaders/fellows will gain mentoring experience.  For the next step, teams may seek funding opportunities for their topic and consider proposal submission.

Fellowship requirements:

  • Research teams must attend the monthly meetings. 
  • Each research team must complete the study, present, and publish.
  • Data collected belong to all members of the team.
  • No individual member or members of the team may use team data to publish or present independently.

The major project stages include:

  • IRB approval.
  • Presentation at a peer-reviewed conference. 
  • Manuscript submission to a peer-reviewed journal.
  • Manuscript acceptance for publication in a peer-reviewed journal.
