Why policy matters particularly in professional doctorates

Pamela Burnard, Tatjana Dragovic, Rebecca Heaton, Barry Rogers

    Research output: Contribution to Book/ReportChapter


    Policy is translated through institutional and workplace forces that lead us to think and act in certain ways. Policy involves the ongoing production of reports, texts, mission statements and curriculum and practice requirements. The underlying principles of policy are played out in the politics of institutions and the learning cultures in which, for researching professionals, the doctoral supervisor is a key player.
