Reframing the PhD
State Discussion Sessions
Reframing the PhD for Australia’s future universities is designed as a conversation starter to explore the challenges of reframing the Australian doctorate for a disrupted future of work. The purpose of the project is to promote discussion throughout the sector regarding the rationale and ‘shape’ of the Australian PhD, particularly in relation to teaching. More details about the project can be found on this website.
The project is hosting discussion sessions in each of four state capitals. The sessions will begin with an overview of the project, then stimulate discussions on ways to enrich the PhD, including how PhD milestones might be a part of that enrichment. Invitations are extended to academic staff and institutional leaders for the morning session (10am -1pm) followed by lunch, with numbers limited to 30 people, and to PhD students (up to 20) who are invited for lunch (from 1pm) and for the afternoon session (1:45-3:30pm). There is no cost for participation in the discussions.
