Welcome & Introduction Video: Dr. Tara Madden-Dent
It feels AMAZING to have walked across the stage at the University of Nevada’s graduation commencement to officially recognize my Ph.D. in Educational Leadership specializing in international education. To top things off, I’ve received second place for a fun university competition called the “3 Minute Dissertation Presentation”. My short (< 3 minute) video summarizes my dissertation. My full +200 page paper is published through the ProQuest Dissertation Database. To learn more about my research without reading the entire document, you can always post a comment on this blog and we’ll discuss it.
I look forward to applying my research as I teach international people pursuing life, work, and studies in the United States. If you are interested in learning more about how I applying my findings into practice, visit HLSL Institute. Not only am I working in the United States, but I am available for international speaking, teaching, and training assignments. Contact me and we’ll schedule your next cross-cultural preparation workshop or seminar to prepare students, employees, or family members for successful transition and adjustment into the U.S.
Welcome to my blog.
I prepare international students, faculty, expatriates, and their families to successfully transition and adjust in the United States. My Ph.D. specializes in international education and this blog exists to help others relocating to the United States of America.
