Doctoral Colloquia--The Student Experience
Stegemann, Nicole; Glaser, Stan
Journal of College Teaching & Learning, v6 n8 p59-64 Dec 2009
Doctoral Colloquia are organised regularly by academic associations to provide doctoral students with feedback on their research. This paper discusses one such colloquium held recently in Sydney under the auspices of the Australia New Zealand Marketing Academy (ANZMAC). It provides the results of a survey held after the colloquium which highlights the effective use of various techniques to engage students and ensure they had positive outcomes from the experience. The colloquium used a variety of techniques which lead to the positive outcomes; these included a form of speed-dating to discuss research ideas and one-on-one sessions with faculty from an expert panel. This paper will discuss these techniques. It also provides the results of the survey and concludes with recommendations for other academics involved in organising doctoral colloquia.
