Preparing Emerging Doctoral Scholars for Transdisciplinary Research: A Developmental Approach
Kemp, Susan Patricia; Nurius, Paula S.
Journal of Teaching in Social Work, v35 n1-2 p131-150 2015
Research models that bridge disciplinary, theoretical, and methodological boundaries are increasingly common as funders and the public push for effective responses to pressing social problems. Although social work is inherently an integrative discipline, there is growing recognition of the need to better prepare emerging scholars for sophisticated transdisciplinary and translational research environments. This article outlines a developmental, competency-oriented approach to enhancing the readiness of doctoral students and emerging scholars in social work and allied disciplines for transdisciplinary research, describes an array of pedagogical tools applicable in doctoral course work, and urges coordinated attention to enhancing the field's transdisciplinary training capacity.
