IOE Doctoral Summer Conference

Later in the academic year, we will be inviting students & staff khổng lồ attend the Centre for Doctoral Education’s Summer conference. Traditionally this has an exciting programme of presentations và panels, featuring 40-50 presentations of doctoral research from across all six departments in the IOE. The Conference will take place on Thursday the 22nd of June, 2023. Full details of the Summer Conference Programme will be given nearer the time.

The Research Student Log

A page of common questions & answers relating khổng lồ the Log is now available.

The Annual Progress review (APR)

Doctoral students (MPhil/PhD and EdD) are expected to review their progress with their supervisors on an annual basis. This exercise is undertaken during the Summer Term. The Annual Progress reviews helps students, supervisors, the Advisory Panels, và the Departmental Graduate Tutors khổng lồ monitor the work being undertaken by students. The aim is khổng lồ ensure that each student’s training, supervision and tư vấn needs are being met, và to identify difficulties the student might be experiencing, and ways to lớn address these. Students will receive notification via moodle of the guidance, forms và deadlines. The APR process involves a discussion between supervisor(s) and students, và completing a size which will be reviewed by a departmental panel. Any students who wish to lớn discuss any aspect of their study in confidence can liên hệ their Departmental Graduate Tutor, the MPhil/PhD Programme Leader, or the EdD Programme Leader.

The Research Training Programme

The IOE provides an extensive programme of courses, workshops & reading groups for all doctoral students. Full details of this can be found in Moodle. (All doctoral students should have access to this Moodle space.)

There are two compulsory courses. The first, IMPCorC, provides an introduction khổng lồ doctoral study; this runs four times each year, in a variety of formats to ensure that it is available khổng lồ all students. The second, Information & Digital Literacies, focuses on the centrality of the literature review for the doctoral thesis. This runs three times a year in both face-to-face & online formats.

Students should also discuss their training needs with their supervisors within their first few tutorials, and revisit this regularly (for example, as part of the annual đánh giá of progress). Further training can be taken from the introductory, advanced or generic courses offered as part of the IOE’s Research Training Programme, from’s skills development programme , from other members of the Bloomsbury Doctoral Training Consortium, or elsewhere, with the support of their supervisors.

Research students should make a brief lưu ý of any training that they have completed in the Research Student Log. Courses provided centrally by can be booked through the Log, & will be recorded within the system automatically.

The IOE’s Research Training Programme courses are classed as ‘departmental training’ by, and can be recorded on the Log: instructions on how to vì chưng this are here.

Note that many other activities, including attendance & research seminars và conferences, also constitute research training, & can be recorded manually on the Log. Information about how to do this is available in Section 4 of the guidance notes for students. requires all students to complete a minimum amount of training each year. Information about this is provided on the skills development website. Participation in departmental seminars, the IOE’s poster and summer conference, & participation in external conferences all count as training for the purposes of this record.

Nazlin Bhimani supports students and staff in all areas of research, including training on skills, subject guides và research project support 

First Term Form

From Autumn 2021 all new students and their supervisors should complete a first term form within a month of the start of their studies. Copies should be uploaded khổng lồ the Research Log & sent to the departmental research administrator to store. We hope this will help lớn address many of the questions that are raised each year by both supervisors và students & help to raise awareness of their mutual responsibilities.

IOE Research Culture: Getting Involved

There are many Research Centres và Special Interest Groups which Doctoral Candidates are welcome khổng lồ join & participate in. Here is the current Research Culture List which we will update regularly. If you discover any new ones which need adding please tell your supervisor!Feedback Expectations

According khổng lồ regulations for feedback (see link) the guidance states that formative feedback should be ‘received by students in good time’ (5.3). We suggest that good practice is for the supervisor and student khổng lồ negotiate a reasonable deadline together, including whether feedback is expected to be written and returned before the next supervision, & ‘within one month’ is usually a reasonable expectation. General expectations for writing and feedback should also be discussed at the outset via the ‘First Meeting Form’.

Training for doctoral students who teach or facilitate sessions runs a dedicated training programme, called Arena One, for postgraduates who teach (usually called PGTAs). The ‘Gateway’ workshop is mandatory for any doctoral students teaching on accredited programmes.

The site also contains information about the optional Teaching Associate Programme (TAP), which provides further development & a pathway lớn Associate Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy và Arena Associate Fellowship (AFHEA).

Further sessions on key issues, called Arena Essentials, are also available.

Research ethics & integrity

Ethics và integrity are important throughout the doctoral process, and all research students are advised to familiarise themselves with’s policy & practice in this area. These issues also size a vi xử lý core part of the compulsory training session provided to all doctoral students in their first year, and optional advanced sessions on ethical issues are also provided as part of the Research Training Programme.

All IOE students are required to submit a khung seeking ethical approval before undertaking any empirical work. The process that must be followed has been laid out as a flow chart. The forms, guidelines & an overview of the process that must be followed are provided on the IOE’s research ethics website. For this, it may be useful to reviews’s statement on research integrity, as well as policies on topics such as research data management. Please cảnh báo that the IOE faculty operates a slightly different process, and uses a different form, from the rest of the university.

Please chú ý also the new guidelines for Resuming face lớn face data collection

The IOE’s research ethics committee includes doctoral student representation. Currently, Emma Brooks is the student representative.
