Rominger, Devnew, Flora, Burton, Bleil, Rack Up Accolades: You Can Too

Several Center for Leadership Studies & Educational Research (CLSER) personnel and other co-authors recently racked up several scholarly accolades. Ryan Rominger, Ph.D., associate university research chair, CLSER recently presented, Managing Your Scholarly Reputation Score at the World Conference on E-Learning in Corporate, Government, Healthcare, and Higher Education (E-Learn) on October 17th in Vancouver. With the advent of several public scholarly community Websites such as Google Scholar and now posting numerical ratings based on interactions and citation algorithms, academicians must now decide whether to participate or remain on the sidelines. Rominger shared his knowledge on how to impact these scores as well as the networking advantages these sites afford. Erik Bean, Ed.D., CLSER, and Fiona Sussan, Ph.D., Center for Global Business & Informational Technology Research (CGBITR) also contributed to the paper.

CLSER Senior Fellow and Distinguished Scholar Dr. Lynne Devnew’s article Learning from our Multi-Stage Collaborative Autoethnography was published in  The Qualitative Report 22(10) released on October 27, 2017. The piece was authored with Ann Berghout Austin, Utah State University, Marlene Janzen Le Ber, Brescia University College at Western University, Judith Babcock LaValley, Kansas State University, and Chanda D. Elbert, Texas A&M University. Devnew and her team are expected to also present the piece at the 9th Annual TQR Conference to be held at Nova Southeastern University, January 2018. Devnew is closing out a remarkable year that also included her prominent work at the International Leadership Association (ILA) 3rd Biennial Women and Leadership Conference and being appointed to the editorial board of the Journal of Leadership Studies.

CLSER Fellow Dr. Patricia Bleil, research fellow and SAS doctoral faculty, also has much to celebrate. Her co-authored manuscript with Jill Robinson, Margaret Thatcher: Gender and the Iron Lady, was published in Sage Business Cases. It is a study of gender and leadership using Margaret Thatcher as the example. Bleil also is quite active with the Women and Leadership Research Group.  

Finally, Jason Flora, Ph.D., fellow as well as Erika Burton, Ph.D, fellow, also reached key stages with their work. Flora’s piece, Scholarly Leadership as a Function of the Doctoral Mentoring Relationship: A Phenomenological study, was accepted for publication in the International Journal of Doctoral Studies. Dr. Burton completed her data collection and analysis for her study involving the professional development needs of educators with a master’s degree in education and their doctoral program needs.
