Doctoral Conference on Leadership & Learning
DCLL is an annual conference that offers doctoral students an opportunity to present their current, innovative, and scholarly work in education and related fields.

DCLL is organized, staffed, and run by doctoral students in the Rivier University Ed.D program in Leadership and Learning. We welcome collaboration with area institutions. Please use the contact link below to learn about ways your doctoral students can participate.

DCLL has two complementary formats: The peer-reviewed conference, first held in February, 2013, and the workshop format, first held in March, 2014. Future conferences will continue to alternate these two formats, with the peer-reviewed conference occuring in odd-numbered years and the workshop format in even-numbered years.

The upcoming DCLL on Saturday, March 7, 2015, will be a peer-reviewed conference.

Conference Format 2015
Our peer-reviewed conference provides a venue for regional doctoral students to:
  • Present their work
  • Share ideas in a collegial atmosphere
  • Publish their work (Presenters are invited to submit papers based on material presented at the conference to InSight: Rivier Academic Journal.)
  • Build networking and professional opportunities
Possible topics include but are not limited to: community leadership, educational leadership, curriculum studies, educational technology, topics in special education, assessment, educational psychology, the brain and learning, diversity in education.

All members of the educational research community are encouraged and welcome to participate. Doctoral students, post-doctoral scholars, and faculty are invited to submit presentation proposals. Other individuals (e.g. undergraduate, Masters, CAGS) are welcome to participate as second author.

Presentation formats include one hour, 30 minute, and poster. Submissions will be considered using a blind peer-reviewed process.
Workshop Format 2016
Our workshop format provides a venue for regional doctoral students to:
  • Strengthen their skills in essential areas such as research, publication, ethics, and collegiality.
  • Build a network for sharing ideas, tips, and foundations for future work.
  • Foster an atmosphere of academic discourse within and between area doctoral programs.
Typical workshop topics include creating or building an academic Curriculum Vitae (CV), navigating the IRB process, authoring posters, conference presentation techniques, and student panels on program and dissertation-related topics.

This event is especially relevant to current doctoral students; however, all members of the educational research community are encouraged and welcome to participate.

Workshop presentation is by invitation of the DCLL steering committee.
