Martinez, George A.; Nerad, Maresi; Rudd, Elizabeth
Learning and Teaching: The International Journal of Higher Education in the Social Sciences, v3 n1 p92-103 Spr 2010
This paper presents a workshop report that summarises the potentially far-reaching deliberations and results of a conference of experts in doctoral education from around the world. The conference was organised jointly by the U.S. Center for Innovation and Research in Graduate Education (CIRGE) at the University of Washington, Seattle and the German International Centre for Higher Education Research (INCHER) at the University of Kassel. Participants discussed critical issues in the globalisation of doctoral education, including global inequalities, diversity in types of students and modes of study, and intellectual risk-taking, and they sought to develop proposals for policy. The focus of the conference was on the research doctorate. Held in Kassel, Germany, March 23-27, 2009, the workshop focused on the three broad themes of internationalisation and inequality, diversity and intellectual risk-taking. This essay reports on the activities, discussions, and conclusions of the workshop. (Contains 2 notes.)
