Increasing numbers of adults are enroling in doctoral programmes, but their earlier college lives often do not prepare them for the rules of the academic game. Many have no idea what a dissertation looks like, how it gets that way, or what options are available to them. This book is a practical guide for students who need help in progressing from the decision to write a dissertation to the planning, writing and defending of it. It includes samples of proposals and dissertations that have been accepted and data drawn from a number of sources, including focus groups with doctoral students and graduates and responses to an open-ended questionnaire from doctoral students across the United States.

Drawing from their combined 50-plus years of conducting and supervising research, the authors successfully mentor graduate students by advising them, answering questions, and breaking down what may seem like an overwhelming and insurmountable task of planning the thesis and dissertation process.

The first edition of BEING BRIGHT IS NOT ENOUGH was well received, and so this new edition has not altered the ideas expressed there. What has been added are details and reactions in light of experiences of the intervening years. This particularly interesting book is written from a student advocacy perspective, intended to speak to non-traditional students as well as those typical of past generations. In making the unwritten rules of doctoral study more explicit, the author is insightful rather than scientific, personal rather than objective, and practical rather than theoretical. Hundreds of doctoral students (and many professors) provided the inspiration for a guide to pave the way for those recipients who will pursue and capture academe's highest award, the terminal degree in a particular field of study.

The public assumes the researcher spends the day dreaming up and trying out creative ideas. In reality, proposal development is an invisible but critical barrier over which even a good researcher may tumble. This book is intended to lower that barrier. It should increase first-trial recognition of good ideas and ensure that rejections do not result because a proposal poorly represented either the ideas, the investigator, or both.

Teaching, Learning and Research in Higher Education offers a combination of critical perspectives and practical advice that is ideally suited for individuals interested in enhancing their practice through analysis and critique. The aim is to promote a critical understanding of one’s own practices: to foster personal and professional formation through a reflexive engagement with one's environment and circumstances. At a practical level this means to continuously think about how to adjust practice rather than following a formulaic approach derived from any particular educational theory. Teaching, Learning and Research in Higher Education argues that academics can find space for their own agency in the midst of institutional policies and practices that serve to frame, as well as delimit and constrain, what counts as good academic work in teaching and research. This text bridges a gap between those books that provide a high-level analysis of contemporary higher education, the more practical texts on how to be a good teacher in higher education, and those texts which aim to improve teaching through better understanding of the learning process. Topical chapters include: Teacher-learner relationship, Learning groups, Practice-oriented learning, Teaching for diversity, e-learning, Assessment, Approaches to Staff Development, Quality assurance, Supervision and Research education, Doing research, and Teaching & Research. A must-have resource for higher education professions, academic developers, professionals, and anyone looking to improve their teaching and learning practices, Teaching, Learning and Research in Higher Education is also appropriate for continuing and professional development courses in the UK and teaching and learning courses in the US. Mark Tennant is Dean of the University Graduate School, University of Technology, Sydney. Cathi McMullen is Lecturer in the School of Marketing and Management at Charles Sturt University. Dan Kaczynski is Professor in the Educational Leadership department at Central Michigan University.
