Approaches to acquiring ‘doctorateness’ in the creative industries : an Australian perspective
Stock, Cheryl F. (2011) Approaches to acquiring ‘doctorateness’ in the creative industries : an Australian perspective. In Justice, Lorraine & Friedman, Ken (Eds.) Pre-Conference Proceedings, Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Hong Kong .
Over the last two decades, particularly in Australia and the UK, the doctoral landscape has changed considerably with increasingly hybridised approaches to methodologies and research strategies as well as greater choice of examinable outputs. This paper provides an overview of doctoral practices that are emerging in the context of the creative industries, with a focus on practice-led approaches within the Doctor of Philosophy and recent developments in professional doctorates, from a predominantly Australian perspective. In interrogating what constitutes ‘doctorateness’ in this context, the paper examines some of the diverse theoretical principles which foreground the practitioner/researcher, methodological approaches that incorporate tacit knowledge and reflective practice together with qualitative strategies, blended learning delivery modes, and flexible doctoral outputs; and how these are shaping this shifting environment. The paper concludes with a study of the Doctor of Creative Industries at Queensland University of Technology as one model of an interdisciplinary professional research doctorate.
