Course summary

We have designed this part-time course to support teachers, lecturers, media professionals, trainers and other educational professionals working in creative/ media/ technology related areas, to conduct doctoral research into their own professional practice in education.

The course is split into two phases. In the taught phase, you’ll be trained in a cohort on the conceptual frameworks for educational research, methodology, ethics, and literature reviewing and data collection. In the supervised, stage, you'll be supported in conducting your project to completion and publication. This course will help you become a doctoral researcher and improve your professional practice to impact on teaching and learning. You will be supported by the course team, fellow students, and members of the Centre for Education, Media and Practice and our active group of Visiting Fellows and Professors, a rich and dynamic community of practice.

In addition to the entry requirements, you will need to be an educational professional with an appetite for enquiry, a passion for reflective thinking about your practice and a desire to take on the challenge of doctoral level study in your discipline context. At the application stage, you will need a viable proposal in the form of a short expression of interest, explaining your role and your prospective research project. You will also need the time to focus on this research, on average one day a week, or equivalent hours spread over the week for four to six years.

Academic support

During your course you’ll attend two 2 day conferences at Bournemouth University's Lansdowne Campus, giving you the opportunity to interact with other students in your cohort and participate in workshops.

Throughout the conferences, you'll explore methodological issues, philosophical underpinnings of research, and will have the chance to enhance your skills in areas that are not necessarily discipline specific. You’ll also be able to interact with researchers from our other faculties, and listen to invited speakers from other institutions, all of which will enhance your own knowledge, skills and perspectives.
