Professional Doctorate in Doctor of Education Creative and Media

    About This Professional Doctorate

    Course Description

    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, 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, 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.
