Our publication Refractive Thinker:Vol II: Effective Research Method & Design for Doctoral Scholars: Ch 7 Dr. Bethany Mickahail & Dr. Kate Andrews was nominated for the E Book Award!
What they are saying ……….
“The goal of this series is not definition but application and unique application of various methods and designs. These scholars are those on the cutting edge of research, finding new ways of application in the how to conduct research,” said Jim Jim Kouzes, Leavey School of Business, Santa Clara University and co-author of The Leadership Challenge. “Each of these authors has a unique twist to their research, what they did and why they did it in a particular way. We know that academia is rather traditional and change comes slowly. These doctors took a bit of a risk to not only forge ahead with new research but new ways of conducting research that challenges the status quo.”
“One of the goals is to have the reader learn from those that have gone before them, to shorten the reader’s learning curve as contributions are made to the greater body of knowledge within research. These authors share their thoughts on what they did and why, and what they recommend doing different for the reader in following their path. These authors do not only ask why, they ask why not? Think Einstein. If thinking is inside the box, and critical thinking is outside the box, refractive thinking is asking the question of what lies beyond the box,” Barry Posner, Leavey School of Business, Santa Clara University and co-author of The Leadership Challenge.
