The number of doctorates being awarded around the world has almost doubled over the last ten years, propelling it from a small elite enterprise into a large and ever growing international market. Within the context of increasing numbers of doctoral students this book examines the new doctorate environment and the challenges it is starting to face. Drawing on research from around the world the individual authors contribute to a previously under-represented focus of theorising the emerging practices of doctoral education and the shape of change in this arena.

Key aspects, expertly discussed by contributors from the UK, USA, Australia, New Zealand, China, South Africa, Sweden and Denmark include:

  • the changing nature of doctoral education
  • the need for systematic and principled accounts of doctoral pedagogies
  • the importance of disciplinary specificity
  • the relationship between pedagogy and knowledge generation
  • issues of transdisciplinarity.

Reshaping Doctoral Educationprovides rich accounts of traditional and more innovative pedagogical practices within a range of doctoral systems in different disciplines, professional fields and geographical locations, providing the reader with a trustworthy and scholarly platform from which to design the doctioral experience. It will prove an essential resource for anyone involved in doctorate studies, whether as students, supervisors, researchers, administrators, teachers or mentors.

Editorial Reviews

'There is a very good chapter on 'learning from the literature' by David Boote. It critiques different approaches to the literature review and could give both supervisors and students a sound basis for forming their own assessment rubric.' - Anne Lee, Educational Developments 2012
