Resumen

LANGE, Naydene de; PILLAY, Guruvasagie  y  CHIKOKO, Vitallis. Doctoral learning: a case for a cohort model of supervision and support. S. Afr. j. educ. [online]. 2011, vol.31, n.1, pp. 15-30. ISSN 2076-3433.

We document the efforts of the faculty of education of a large research-oriented university in supporting doctoral learning. The development of a space for doctoral learning is in line with the need to develop a community of researchers in South Africa. We describe the historical origins of this cohort model of doctoral supervision and support, draw on literature around doctoral learning, and analyse a cohort of doctoral students' evaluation of the seminarsoverthree years. The findings indicate that the model has great value in developing scholarship and reflective practice in candidates, in providing support and supervision, and in sustaining students towards the completion of their doctorates.

Palabras clave : cohort; community of practice; doctoral learning; scholarship; supervision.
