Event summary
EXAMINING THE IMPACT OF STRUCTURED TRAINING PROGRAMMES 8th - 9th April 2019, The Grand Hotel, Malahide, Dublin
Event details

DOCTORAL EDUCATION'S MOST SIGNIFICANT DEVELOPMENT

The adoption of structured training programmes is the most significant change to doctoral education in recent years.

Driven by the expansion of provision, the need for better monitoring and support, growing emphasis by UK Research Councils on formal training, and the move away from the “apprentice” model.

Widely seen as the preferred model for doctoral education, structured programmes are now the norm for most doctoral candidates—both in the UK and internationally.

Emerging as a common theme of discussion at previous ICDDETs, the on-going significance of structured training programmes demand they be explored in greater depth.

UNDERSTANDING THE FULL IMPACT

Despite widespread adoption, the full impact of their introduction, the advantages and the constraints, has yet to be examined closely.

ICDDET4 will present and examine the evidence on how structured training programmes improve doctoral education, and will bring new insight on how this key development is affecting the postgraduate sector.

Has the structured model focussed resources for doctoral education on a smaller number of institutions? What impact might that have on the future of doctoral education?

To what extent do doctoral cohort programmes reduce social isolation and improve the peer support for doctoral candidates?

How have the different disciplinary groups adopted structured training models, and to what extent is interdisciplinary research enhanced by the structured approach?

 
CONFERENCE THEMES

ICDDET4 will explore the wider impact of structured doctoral training, for candidates, supervisors and universities, through the following broad conference themes:

    STUDENT EXPERIENCE
    What are the benefits and disadvantages of structured training for individual doctoral candidates?

    DIVERSITY AND WELLBEING
    What impact do structured training programmes have on inclusivity and diversity? Does a structured approach support or detract from student wellbeing?

    DISCIPLINARY APPROACHES
    What are the similarities and differences among structured training models in different disciplinary groups?

    SUPERVISORS, TRAINERS AND DEVELOPMENT
    Who are other key stakeholders in a structured approach? How can they be best supported?

    EVIDENCE AND VALUE FOR MONEY
    What data exists to support the claims that structured training is effective? Are the additional costs of structured training justified?

    NOVEL APPROACHES
    What are the most novel and/or effective approaches to structure that are currently being used or developed?
