Abstract

This project investigates how doctoral students make ‘learning leaps’ to recognise and cross conceptual and skills thresholds in their research and ways in which they can be best supported to do so. It responds to current national and international concerns about the nature of the doctorate, its purpose and value for different stakeholders. The research takes place in a number of UK universities, representing differences in the sector. It aims to (a) explore and conceptualise the nature of doctoral students’ learning during research and skill development; (b) examine and enhance the practices of supervisors and examiners in order to support and assess students’ learning. The project will both create new conceptual and factual knowledge about doctoral student learning and supervisory practices, and produce printed and electronic materials to support students and supervisors.
