The place where advanced learners meet!

The professional doctoral practitioner Hub (the Hub) is explicitly intended as a forum for professional doctoral practitioners to connect with others dedicated to progressing knowledge in the virtual and physical domains. As such, this forum intends to overcome one of the main challenges of the doctoral journey - being isolated from others in a similar position. It will be populated by experts with tremendous experience in all aspects of doctoral education and unrivalled success in achieving the eventual award through effective writing and submission for viva voce examination.

What students say about us

Advanced Course: Tackling Wicked Problems – or how to nail jelly to the wall

It was a good 8 weeks, though I would have loved to have had this module during my DBA programs theoretical stage ...or even during one of the DBA DDP’s (Doctoral Development Plan).

A key learnings for me was to keep the focus on the problem, and not get diverted towards a solution based approach. 

The mirroring technique and the table shared in the module will be an useful tool for candidates to compare and ensure that relevant points have been reflected on and addressed in the respective sections of the thesis.

I see myself using the table for communicating how triangulation has been supportive both at the data collection and analysis stage of the thesis. 

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and the team at the DoctorateHub for your time and patience and appreciate your feedback and comments that have ensured further clarity in my thesis. Wishing everyone the best in their future endeavours.

Advanced Course: Tackling Wicked Problems – or how to nail jelly to the wall

The course has been invaluable in:

  1. Understanding problems as "wicked",
  2. Assisting with my Thesis and,
  3. For practice.

Despite the difficulty in balancing work, completing the Thesis and the course, at first the 8 weeks could appear to others as taking time away from Thesis development, but actually, it enhanced mine.

I would highly recommend it. Thank you. I do wish you the best with taking the course forward.
