The International Doctoral Education Research Network (IDERN) provides an avenue for researchers on doctoral education from around the globe to generate dialogue on knowledge creation and doctoral pedagogy.
If you start working as a professional in the field of doctoral studies, you soon come across the topic of “supervision” or the question: how can we as a university, but also as service providers, ensure or at least contribute to the quality of supervision by our researchers. And this of course means, on the one hand, thinking about quality in supervision at all, and on the other hand reflecting on the complexity of the topic of supervision. One way to immerse yourself in the topic is to take a closer look at the handbooks on the topic of “PhD Supervision”.
The need to promote good research conduct and research integrity, and how to achieve it has been debated by Universities, funders, and publishers alike for many years. However, in this current pandemic climate it has never been more timely to highlight the importance of good trustworthy, reliable research.
The Philosophy and Theory of Higher Education Society plays an important role in the joint international endeavour of developing and strengthening the discussions about the purpose and role of the university as an institution. The Society aims to be central to the formation of an initiative to establish a lasting joint international academic venture into the Philosophy and Theory of Higher Education. We encourage a multi-generational membership including PhD students, and newer and experienced researchers and scholars.
