The initiative for a book on Transformative Doctoral Research Practices for Professionals

The initiative for a book on Transformative Doctoral Research Practices for Professionals, encompassing a variety of different viewpoints, from students to lecturers, supervisors and course managers, arises from a need for critical insight into the doing, supporting, teaching and learning of doctoral research. The purpose of this edited volume is, primarily, to explore the distinct research practices and unique journeying of professional practitioner-researchers and their supervisors and lecturers who stand at the centre of doctoral education. While the topics feature critical issues that characterize professional doctorates, the ways in which these scholars have chosen to address their journeying illustrate the diversity of voices in practice, with project examples from within and beyond educational settings.This volume offers the first institutional-specific collection in the form of a collaboratively authored volume, with the purpose and goal of sharing the lived-through debates, deliberations, challenges and experiences of a group of professional doctoral students, their supervisors and lecturers. The book is divided into three main parts: Part 1 ‘Mapping doctoral practices’, Part 2 ‘Theorising doctoral journeying’, and Part 3 ‘Generating impact’. The flyer below provides information about where you can purchase a copy. The photos feature the co-editors, Professor Pamela Burnard, Dr. Tatjana Dragovic, Julia Flutter and Dr. Julie Alderton. Contributing authors include Riikka Hoffman, Karen Ottewell, Wai Mun Lim, Simon Dowling, Gavin Turner, James Knowles, Denise Whalley, and Rebecca Kitchen.
