Trans-disciplinary PhD Workshop
MInD Lab has hosted a half day workshop to explore and develop a new model of “collaborative/trans-disciplinary” PhD model for Deakin, which would act as a pilot for the University. The difference of this model, from the existing “interdisciplinary” PhDs, would not only be the development/formulation of the research problems (trans-disciplinary and impact driven), but also embedding design/creativity as a strong element of the “research” methodology to create cross-sector impact.
Participants include academics from the School of Architecture and Built Environment, the School of Arts and Communication and the School of IT. The model has been looked at from three different perspectives: the students, the university and the industries.
