Fulfilling the Potential of your Doctoral Experience

Tuesday, 12 June 2018

Professor Pam Denicolo and Drs Dawn Duke and Julie Reeves

At the start of the centenary year for the UK research PhD we think it appropriate to celebrate the event by encouraging prospective and current doctoral researchers to make the most of the opportunities such study affords. A growing concern of the presenters had been an emphasis in books and articles about the doctorate on merely surviving this level of study as if it were like the Twelve Labours of Hercules: tasks to be endured to prove personal worth to others. While such works contain much valuable guidance, this session will take a distinctive and thoroughly positive stance, highlighting the potential inherent in a doctoral programme for enjoyment of the process as well as for personal, professional development. Throughout this day, the presenters will seek to dispel inhibiting fears of challenge and change so that doctoral researchers are empowered to take advantage of the wealth of opportunities available to them, inspiring participants to find delight in their research, and fulfillment in their own personal and professional enhancement.

This session is based on their latest book* with selected, taster activities, representing the different stages of the doctorate from making a good start to successfully moving on, devised to help researchers to take charge of their doctorate to get the full benefit of the whole experience. Thus, this workshop is open to people willing to be pro-active and take a positive approach to making progress through their doctorate and beyond. 

 

* Fulfilling the potential of your doctoral experience(SAGE 2018). ’This book is essential reading for anyone undertaking a doctorate.  It navigates through all stages of doctoral study, suggesting strategies and negotiating stances as well as emphasising personal development and future career paths.  The authors’ extensive experience of supporting doctoral students shines through every page.’ Professor Rosemary Deem, Reviewer.
