Summary of Findings

Campbell et al., 2021 Professional conferences, campus-based learning, graduate students experiences, conference-based learning, transformative learning theory, qualitative study RQ1: What do master’s students in a professional graduate school learn at professional and academic conferences? How and in what ways do they learn? RQ2: How does this learning complement their previous knowledge on the subject? Constructivist theory of learning and transformative learning Master’s level students from Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey (MIIS) (N=10 interviewees) Qualitative methodology, thematic analysis of semi-structured interviews RQ1: Graduate students benefit from one-on-one interactions and conversations at conferences, which provide essential information about their chosen field and interesting subjects. RQ2: Master’s students can enhance their knowledge by integrating professional and academic topics, enhancing their understanding through prior coursework and job experience.
Lund & Hanebutt, 2022 Psychology graduate students, disability, graduate student teachers, psychologists with disabilities, qualitative research RQ1: What are the lived experiences reported by graduate psychology students with disabilities in relation to teaching? RQ2: In what ways can psychology programs support graduate students in psychology in their teaching? No theoretical framework mentioned; constructivist theory could be applied 12 participants from various psychology graduate programs (N=12) Qualitative method, phenomenological interview-based approach RQ1: Range of experiences reported, including effects of disability on teaching experiences, anxiety, disclosure, etc. RQ2: Collaboration with university centers for teaching and disability support services is recommended to better support graduate student instructors.
Tu et al., 2021 Dimensions of social entrepreneurial orientation, social vision, social proactiveness, innovativeness, risk-taking motive, graduate students, PLS-based SEM Hypotheses related to the influence of various factors on graduate students’ social entrepreneurial attitude and intention Theory of planned behavior (TPB) Graduate students from various disciplines (N=465) Online survey method, structured questionnaire Various hypotheses were supported, indicating significant positive influences of social vision, innovativeness, social proactiveness, and risk-taking motive on students’ social entrepreneurial attitude and intention.
Yoo & Marshall, 2022 Graduate student parents, barriers, quantitative study, parental status, major, gender on motivation, stress, satisfaction RQ1: How do parental status and student major affect graduate students’ motivation, stress, and satisfaction? RQ2: How do gender and student major affect graduate student parents’ motivation, stress, and satisfaction? Self-Determination Theory 545 graduate students (N=545), including parents and non-parents Quantitative study with factorial ANOVAs RQ1: Significant differences found between parent and non-parent students in stress and satisfaction, but not major-related effects. RQ2: Major and gender did not significantly impact the dependent variables.
