December 7, 2017
RESEARCHING SUPERVISION IN PRACTICE BASED DOCTORATES – INSIGHTS FROM PRACTICE
UK Council for Graduate Education
Hallam Conference Centre, London
December 7th 2017
Professor Vida Midgelow, Middlesex University has be invited to present her finding on the supervision of Artistic Doctorates emerging from the ADiE project. Her presentation is entitled:
“Artistic doctorates in dance and performance: experiences from the supervisory field”
During the workshop, presenters will discuss the results of a current and a recently completed project and why funding has been made available in this particular part of the doctoral landscape. A debate will be facilitated on how these resonate with the experience of the audience in their institutional context.
The conversation will bring together academic practitioners and researchers, taking the cue from two projects on doctoral supervision led by Middlesex University and funded by Erasmus+. This research in professional and art-practice doctorates has identified a supervisory relationship in some respects distinct from the one in other forms of doctorate as well as a diverse landscape of ‘modern’ doctorates that invite a reflection on the current meaning and practice of doctoral-level education.
