Institutional Pedagogical Waypoints: Reflections on Doctoral Journeys between Taiwan and Australia
Evans, Terry; Liou, Iris Yi-shin
Innovations in Education and Teaching International, v48 n4 p401-411 2011
Spatial, social and academic journeys undertaken between Taiwan and Australia for doctoral education are the focus of reflection here. The discussion centres on the authors' experiences of, on the one hand, the development of a Faculty of Education's doctoral pedagogies in the early 2000s to reflect its international PhD candidature profile--especially from Taiwan--and, on the other, of Taiwanese doctoral candidates' journeys through their PhDs in the Faculty. The authors write from their particular perspectives: Evans as an Australian academic and a manager of doctoral studies, and Liou as a Taiwanese academic pursuing her doctorate in an Australian university. The article considers the Australian and Taiwanese doctoral contexts between which the students transited. The institutional pedagogical strategies, from pre-enrolment to completion, are examined as waypoints on the doctoral journey for both staff and candidates. (Contains 4 notes and 3 tables.)
