Addressing the Needs of Doctoral Students as Academic Practitioners: A Collaborative Inquiry on Teaching in Higher Education
Starr, Lisa J.; DeMartini, Ashley
Canadian Journal of Higher Education, v45 n3 p68-83 2015
This paper presents preliminary findings from a pilot study whose purpose was to explore how we, a tenure-track faculty member and a doctoral student, understood and developed our teaching practice when engaged in a formal faculty-student relationship. Using a hybrid of collaborative inquiry and collaborative self-study--which included verbal and written dialogue, interrogation, as well as observation--we sought to understand how that formal faculty-student relationship promoted the development of strong teaching pedagogy. The motivation for this study was a commitment to fostering high-quality teaching in undergraduate courses in our faculty of education. Driving this study was the research question: How are we investigating and improving upon our practices as teachers in post-secondary education?
