Exploring practitioner wellbeing in communication: Towards an approach for suitable practice

Activity: Supervision/Examination/MentoringInternal HDR Supervision


Victoria Erskine - Doctor of Philosophy by Publication.

Supervisory Team Role: to contribute as qualitative researcher specialising in Contemporary Organisational Ethnography. Specifically, to oversee the development of a research design that will serve as a way for (a) learning more about the organisational worlds being studied and (b) a method for developing theories to understand them. By viewing the research as constructed, rather than discovered, this fosters a researchers' reflexivity about their actions and decisions.

This project favours a Constructivist Grounded Theory approach (Sharmaz,2014) to inform policy and professional practice.

Leading fortnightly zoom meetings specifically aiming at:
- Guiding, planning and implementing some well established preliminary fieldwork research activities (in progress)
