The agenda covered five days focused on the DBA thesis, from proposal through to Viva. Interactive topics included: writing and presenting conference papers, understanding the expectations and lifecycle of the thesis process, exploring action research, the ethical approval process, research problem statements and research questions, data analysis and findings, and what to expect at the Viva Voce examination. Participants also presented various stages of thesis progress for feedback from academics and one-on-one discussions were provided with DoctorateHub Tutors throughout the week. A current UoL cohort member who undertook his Viva on the last day offered insights and learnings as a final takeaway. The residency was concluded with support available from the DoctorateHub team and follow-up actions.
The opportunity taken to forge deep network connections and discuss thesis and scholar-practitioner journeys amongst the cohort will ensure ongoing regular contact.
Residencies can be arranged to suit participant requirements and locations, including in partnership with organisations or academic providers. The DoctorateHub provide Doctoral tutors/academics and content to maximise learning and participation, with post-residency support to meet participant’s needs.
The DoctorateHub team is currently planning the 2019 residency program. This is a good opportunity for you to have input on where and when residencies will take place. Within the coming weeks we will be launching a survey and would like to learn from you! In the meantime don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any suggestion.
