Huber is the author of a three-article dissertation about servant leadership, self-efficacy, and student satisfaction in higher education online learning. In this project, the problem statement was properly developed and explained using statistical data. A brief description of academic management innovations and the evaluation of the results that led to certain problems were developed. Further, the purpose of the paper identified the intentions of the author and an understanding of the chosen topic. Finally, the theoretical framework proved the connection between the problem and the purpose, as well as the appropriateness of the study.
The review of the dissertation written by Huber (2014) contributes to my personal understanding of the research process that has to be developed in terms of my future TAD project in several ways. First, I read several sections of the dissertation project and realized that this type of writing was a complex process. It is not enough to identify a topic and a research problem in order to prove the significance of the project. A dissertation writer has to evaluate all aspects of a future research process and connect all parts so that research has a meaning. Second, this dissertation can be used as an appropriate example for other writers who have to deal with their three-article dissertation projects soon. Finally, Huber (2014) shows how to discuss one certain topic that is leadership and self-efficacy in higher education online learning from three different perspectives and unit them as one significant contribution. In general, the review of prior dissertation studies, and Huber’s project, in particular, helps to clarify the steps that have to be used for writing an independent project, choosing a subject, and discussing its theoretical framework.
