Your problem has been identified, you have your proposal approved, now it is time to consider the structure of your thesis. This becomes a make or break point in your scholar-practitioner journey.
The structure of the DBA thesis requires us to ask ourselves questions such as: What is the purpose of my thesis? Who is my audience – learned scholars, work colleagues, others? How should I structure my thesis to sell my ideas and findings to my audience? What structure should I use? Is there a difference between a PhD and a DBA thesis in terms of structure? It is in answering these and other questions that guides our thesis structure.
To aid exploring these types of questions, the Doctorate Hub team will hold a live, interactive webinar on The Structure of the Thesis on Wednesday, 14th March 2018, at 7pm UK time. This is one of a series of interactive webinars run by 4 academics and thesis supervisors and will cover how to structure a DBA thesis, comparing both generic and traditional forms of thesis structures, and focusing on the suggested structure of the Laureate/UoL thesis. Drawing on past experience, the presenter will offer suggestions on structures past students have successfully used in their thesis. To register Click here. Once registered, participants will be forwarded the webinar link to dial into.
The presentation on The Structure of the Thesis will be available at the Doctorate Hub in the days following the webinar.
We are looking to provide a range of topics of use to Doctoral students and graduates in coming months. As always, we welcome your thoughts on topics of value to you or others.
Feel free to explore the Doctorate Hub and register for the Doctoral Thesis Discussion group under the Learning area, if you haven’t already, where we can exchange idea and support each other. The website is being progressively populated with valuable information to support our Doctoral journeys and beyond as many of us continue undertaking post-Doctoral research in our organisations or seek to publish in peer review journals.
We will start at 7pm UK time sharp, so please log in a few minutes before in readiness.
See/talk to you all soon.
