Royal Roads at University of Oxford


Dr. Bernard Schissel and I channeled our passion for Royal Roads’ Doctor of Social Sciences program into a paper I presented at the UK Council for Graduate Education's 2nd International Conference on Doctoral Education and Training at the University of Oxford.

The paper explores the implications for faculty who transition from discipline-based scholarship to interdisciplinarity in doctoral studies, and is based on our own reflections and teaching in the Office of Interdisciplinary Studies. Our paper was the only Canadian content presented at the conference attended by approximately 200 delegates from Europe, New Zealand, Australia, Singapore and the United States. The paper will be published as a chapter in an upcoming edited volume exploring International Perspectives on Professional Practice Doctorates.
