PODCAST: THE PHD AND THE PROCESS OF BECOMING AN EXPERT WITH STEVEN SEGAL



Steven Segal is a psychologist and academic who also practices as a philosophical counsellor. His PhD was in the philosophy of Education and his work as Associate Dean of Higher Degrees Research, as well as his own supervision of doctoral candidates, led him to develop a framework of understanding around the transition from novice to expert through the PhD.


In this episode Steven reflects on how doctoral training often focuses on the technical aspects of the PhD rather than attending to the experiential dimension to research which is a key aspect of the process.


Steven shares his own experience of feeling lost during his PhD and the wise words that his supervisor shared with him that continued to support him.
