Dr. Amanda Rockinson-Szapkiw

Doctoral Professor at a Private University

As the developer of this course and many university-level courses and as co-editor of Navigating the Doctoral Journey, I am committed to making sure that students have the tools that they need to persist in their degree programs and reach their goals.

Over the past 6 years serving as a doctoral faculty, I have developed and implemented processes, policies, online and mobile resources, Web-based quantitative design and analysis trainings, and YouTube analysis tutorials aimed at facilitating students’ success in their research and statistics courses and completion of their dissertations. I have served on the committee of over two dozen EdD candidates who successfully defended their dissertations, and I have mentored over two hundred EdD candidates who successfully defended their dissertations.

Further, I have authored and co-authored more than three dozen peer-reviewed journal articles and presented and co-presented over 50 professional presentations nationally and internationally, focusing on doctoral persistence and effective distance education teaching strategies. My hope is that you find the courses I've developed helpful, as many other students and researchers have, in achieving your academic and research goals and to overcome the challenges faced that often lead to attrition.
