Welcome to the Center for Leadership Studies and Educational Research (CLSER). My name is Erik Bean, Ed.D. senior fellow and I am available to assist you in pursuing your research, building camaraderie, and in helping you through the IRB/ARB process or just to critically think about matching up your interests with presentation and publication opportunities. We are here to help empower you to start a research agenda based on your discipline and practitioner goals.
First things first, if you have not yet requested to join our center, please do so. Once your request is received and approved, be sure to update your profile so that it reflects your publication and presentation record over the last five years. Be aware that if you enter acceptance of future publications and presentations, they will not publically appear until the date has past. Once you update your profile, be sure to visit our Present or Publish page for current conferences, associations, and publications that might be amenable to your research focus. It currently features popular leadership based conferences and throughout the year will typically feature popular education and technology conferences that span many CLSER disciplines.
Are you interested in women and leadership issues? Then check out Lynne Devnew’s blog. Perhaps you are interested in qualitative research involving the potentiating theory of leadership or action research. If so, I encourage you to reach out to Center Research Dean Mark McCaslin, Ph.D. Earlier this year he posted a very useful blog on time management, a subject near and dear to many scholars’ hearts. And if you are interested in research in general or in areas such immediacy/engagement, using technology in the classroom, or the student/faculty customer, then I can be of assistance.
Becoming an affiliate, networking, and staying visible at our webinars and workshops, for example, are the ingredients that can lead to that first idea and understanding the correct submission processes and avoid those that can ordinarily lead to roadblocks.
Do you need an immediate incentive to get started? We thought so. Remember, when you do finally get your work accepted, you can earn a University of Phoenix honorarium. Please navigate to the Research Funding Overview section. Start learning about funding opportunities today so as your work progresses you will stand poised to take advantage of the right type of funding and its eligibility requirements.
Some say, "So you want to start a research agenda?" as if you must be part of an elite academic club. But you are already part of the School of Advanced Studies and we are open to assisting all who desire to grow and contribute meaningful knowledge. Once again Welcome to CLSER! If I can be of any further assistance, please reply here or contact me via email at email@example.com.
Erik Bean, Ed.D.,
CLSER senior fellow
Much success to you!
