Developing as a researcher


The contents page below captures the range of information I submit as evidence of my development as a researcher. Also evidenced is my critical reflection on how these activities inform my learning and developing research practice. As a practice-led researcher I have arranged the balance of theoretical and practice research to ensure both are rigorous and complement each other.  I address each heading with evidence of development and delivery drawn from my attendance and participation with the PGCERT Course and subsequent development as a doctoral research student. In addition, I provide evidence of attendance and my implementation of supervision input from my Director of Studies and Second Supervisor in academic and practice research. Through this evidence I have documented the range of research skills I have gained and will build upon as my ongoing research activities reveal new avenues to be explored. I seek to show that I understand the needs, structures and deliverables of doctoral research study. I communicate how I am engaged in the challenges of practice-led research and the journey in front of me, as I build knowledge in my selected domain of Contemporary Portraiture in digital and analogue environments.
