Doctoral Consortium

The DESRIST Doctoral Consortium is designed for doctoral students in all stages of their dissertation projects. It provides a platform where they can present their design-oriented dissertation projects and receive feedback, guidance, and support. Students will meet peers who also conduct design-oriented doctoral studies as well as experienced scholars who will provide substantive developmental feedback.
