Doctoral research is the source of innovative and impactful research that transforms society and challenges dominant theories and practices. While recognizing the changing landscape of doctoral education, the higher education community continues to emphasize the need to maintain the quality and rigour in doctoral scholarship. Central to this topic is maintaining the rigour of doctoral research design while supporting and encouraging multiple forms of research and research methodologies.
The Faculty of Management (FoM) and Faculty of Applied and Social Sciences’ College of Interdisciplinary Studies (FSAS) at Royal Roads University is pleased to host a three-day online conference that focuses on socially engaged applied doctoral research in Canada. The first day of the conference will be reserved for supervisors and faculty members to discuss applied research at the doctoral level.
