One of the key differentiators of the Aston DBA is its ability to be undertaken on a distance learning basis. An inspirational distance learning experience is vital if we are to continue to attract and retain the very busy, senior practitioners for whom the DBA is developed.
The award of CLIPP funding for this project would allow us to undertake an investigation that would result in
- a better distance learning experience for our current DBA students
- useful knowledge on professional doctorate education that could be disseminated throughout Aston University
- pedagogical insights that could result in formal dissemination to the wider academic community through conference and journal papers
