This project will investigate what might constitute good pedagogical practice in research training programmes for professional doctorate education. The project is located in the context of the recently published revised ESRC Guidelines for 1+3 postgraduate doctoral education (and their present review). These stress the importance of dedicated high quality initial research training and the transferability of skills, and include an enhanced emphasis on professional doctorates.
