Abstract:
This submission is offered to meet the requirements of the PhD in alternative format. The alternative format involves the submission of scholarly materials which make an original contribution to knowledge that is equal to but different from both a traditional PhD and a PhD by publication. The materials submitted are not required to have been published in peer refereed or other kinds of journal, nor to have necessarily included original empirical research. They must however demonstrate rigorous intellectual capacity of at least PhD level and must make an original contribution to knowledge. This contribution to knowledge may be performative (action-oriented) knowledge rather than propositional knowledge. Together the materials must comprise a coherent area of scholarly and -research work. They may be supplemented by an appendix which is not required to be part of that coherent area of work but may be used to demonstrate the capacity to undertake in future original research publishable in academic journals. 6 The guidelines produced by the Department of Educational Research under which this submission is offered have four main requirements: Show convincing evidence that the candidate has pursued research and scholarship in education to a depth comparable to that of a traditional PhD Demonstrate that the work makes an original contribution to theory and knowledge or scholarship to an extent comparable to that of a traditional PhD Contain material that has been published in professional, research or scholarly outlets, or is of an appropriate standard for publication in such outlets Demonstrate that the candidate has the capacity to pursue research in the future which could contribute to the development of theory and knowledge in educational research 1.1.2 How the requirements of the alternative format are met in this submission These requirements are met in this submission in the following ways: Show convincing evidence that the candidate has pursued research and scholarship in education to a depth comparable to that of a traditional PhD By the presentation of a considerable body of work in the form of eleven research reports which make up the main part of this submission and are to be found in Section 2 (Section 2: Research Reports). These deal with a particular area of educational research, that of management development and education. These reports, while not in the format of a traditional PhD, do form a coherent academic whole. Their content is critical and analytic rather than simply factual, and offers in-depth discussion of a variety of intellectual issues connected ,with the data researched. Demonstrate that the work makes an original contribution to theory and knowledge or scholarship to an extent comparable to that of a traditional PhD By the presentation of a concluding chapter (Section 3: Conclusions) which draws together the main strands of the original contribution to knowledge contained in the Research Reports. Contain material that has been published in professional, research or scholarly outlets, or is of an appropriate standard for publication in such outlets By the presentation of a number of pieces of work in the Research Reports section which have been published in scholarly and professional contexts. These are 2.1, 2.2 and 2.3 published by the Council for Excellence in Management and Leadership, 2.9 published by the DfES, and 2.7, 2.10 and 2.11 (in press) to be published by the NHS Leadership Centre. • Demonstrate that the candidate has the capacity to pursue research in the future which could contribute to the development of theory and knowledge in educational research.
