In addition to examples of current research, the event explores the curriculum, methodologies and supervisory devices that might be particularly helpful for nurturing high impact research and how doctoral pathways can lead to real-world change.

Workshop Overview

With approximately 450 million people worldwide now living with a mental health issue, our collective well-being is one of the most pressing concerns of our time. Scholars and practitioners from a variety of disciplines are examining what needs to occur to enhance emotional well-being at national and global levels and there are exciting opportunities for professional doctorates to exert a significant influence in shaping the knowledge-base and practices of this challenging field.

Professional Doctorates are uniquely primed to undertake research in this area. Doctorates in clinical psychology, counselling psychology and psychotherapy are already helping create a brighter future for those who live with emotional difficulty whilst others with a broader remit, such as doctorates in education and doctorates in professional studies, are exploring areas that include the contribution of coaching to emotional well-being and interventions for young people. But can we do more? And if so what?

The workshop provides a forum for sharing good practice across the curriculum and across sectors and universities. We invite colleagues who attend to bring poster case studies of doctoral students who are undertaking work in this field for a poster session which will then be included digitally on the UKCGE website amongst a collection of impact case studies. We also invite colleagues to write academic papers and/or debate and discussion papers following the event which will appear in a special edition of the Work-Based learning e-journal international.

The meeting will focus on the different ways doctoral education and doctoral candidates relate and contribute to society. This includes topics such as the relations between doctoral education and the Sustainable Development Goals, inter-sectoral mobility and collaboration, citizen science and the link between science communication and doctoral education. The EUA-CDE Annual Meeting will also offer reflections on policies and practices that assist the contribution of doctoral candidates to society and on doctoral education structures in general. Open to everyone interested in this field, the EUA Council for Doctoral Education (EUA-CDE) invites university members and other stakeholders to take this opportunity to exchange good practices and build new relations with European policy makers, funding organisations and global partners. This event may be of particular interest for academic leaders, doctoral education professionals, doctoral candidates and other research stakeholders.
