The 24 chapters contained in this volume provide diverse but also congruent perspectives on future foci for research into postgraduate education and supervision in the knowledge society. The chapters move from deliberations on challenges for postgraduate supervision at macro level (such as the pressure to increase postgraduate output and the implications of increasingly managerialist institutions) to meso level matters (the form and function of postgraduate education in specific countries) to the micro (rich case studies of individual institutions, programmes and supervisors).

This is a practical guide aimed at supervisors of research students. It is written in a lively case study style and is designed to appeal to supervisors who need a quick fix, and who have neither the time nor the inclination to read a more detailed, in depth book on the subject such as Supervising the Doctorate. There is a growing need for such a volume as the QAA postgraduate code of practice in the UK indicates that all new doctoral supervisors must be trained appropriately. This book will be very suitable for such training courses. The authors both come from a medical background so the book is likely to be particularly well recieved within scientfic and medical departments.

Across the globe, doctoral education is in the throes of change. Diversification, regulation and proliferation are just a few of the developments that pose major challenges for those supervising doctoral candidates. The second edition of A Handbook for Doctoral Supervisors has been fully updated to assist doctoral supervisors in understanding and meeting these challenges. The book is split into six key parts: the changing contexts of doctoral supervision recruiting, selecting and working with doctoral candidates supporting the research project supporting non-traditional candidates in terms of academic and social backgrounds and modes of study supporting completion, submission and examination the evaluation and dissemination of practice. The book builds on the success and practical knowledge of the first edition and has been re-written and extended to take into account the latest scholarship in doctoral supervision, address new contemporary themes and present updated examples and case studies. With a self-interrogatory style which enables supervisors to reflect upon and, where appropriate, consider how to enhance their practice, this book is an essential read for anyone involved in doctoral supervision.

Rather, the focus is on presenting explanations and possible strategies designed to make your teaching and supervision work less burdensome, more rewarding (for you and your students) and manageable.

"It is both uplifting and challenging. It offers tales of great persistence, self-belief and belief in the community of learners these pioneers were seeking to engage with and influence. It is a wonderful narrative which should be compulsory reading for all those aspiring to influence the shape and content of post-secondary education in their own nations." Widening Participation and Lifelong Learning "Quite simply, this is essential and inspiring reading to prepare the next generation to lead distance education." American Journal of Distance Education What did forty-four leading-edge distance education pioneers in higher education experience and learn over their careers? What concerns and research ideas could they pass on to younger colleagues to consider? What do seven expert commentators find in those lessons and experience that might promote theory-building and practice enhancement for post-secondary education? This unique book analyzes the work of over forty pioneers who helped drive key late twentieth century changes in access to, and learning in, higher education, via distance education. It examines how they defined their challenges, made decisions, coped with traditionalist resistance, developed new teaching and learning models, used various technologies, felt the excitement of innovation, and, above all, respected adult learners' goals and contexts. The book also assesses the relevance of that experience and skill to today's contexts. Seven international leaders in adult, distance and higher education assess the pioneers' reflections to glean the ideas of most relevance for contemporary teachers and administrators. Flexible Higher Education provides key reading for post-secondary educators who are interested in learning and teaching design, technology use, quality assurance, learner access and inclusion, innovation in higher education and respect for reflective wisdom. Commentators: Michael Collins, Sir John Daniel, Yvonne Hillier, Michael Grahame Moore, David Murphy, Diana G. Oblinger and Barbara Spronk.

This book is a very important contribution to the growing body of work on postgraduate, and specifically doctoral, education ... I find the metaphor of pushing boundaries to be very appropriate, as it suggests a field of study and a range of behaviours and institutional organisational approaches to postgraduate education that are dynamic and characterised by fluidity, creativity and challenge ... Readers will gain new theoretical perspectives, ideas for improved practice, and fresh perspectives on boundaries and pressing issues that deserve to be pushed and conceptualised in new ways. - Professor Ann Austin (Higher, Adult and Lifelong Education Michigan State University)

Worldwide, in Africa and in South Africa, the importance of the doctorate has increased disproportionately in relation to its share of the overall graduate output over the past decade. This heightened attention has not only been concerned with the traditional role of the PhD, namely the provision of future academics; rather, it has focused on the increasingly important role that higher education - and, particularly, high-level skills - is perceived to play in national development and the knowledge economy. This book is unique in the area of research into doctoral studies because it draws on a large number of studies conducted by the Centre of Higher Education Trust (CHET) and the Centre for Research on Evaluation, Science and Technology (CREST), as well as on studies from the rest of Africa and the world. In addition to the historical studies, new quantitative and qualitative research was undertaken to produce the evidence base for the analyses presented in the book. The findings presented in Doctoral Education in South Africa pose anew at least six tough policy questions that the country has struggled with since 1994, and continues to struggle with, if it wishes to gear up the system to meet the target of 5 000 new doctorates a year by 2030. Discourses framed around the single imperatives of growth, efficiency, transformation or quality will not, however, generate the kind of policy discourses required to resolve these tough policy questions effectively. What is needed is a change in approach that accommodates multiple imperatives and allows for these to be addressed simultaneously.
