There have been some discussions on structure for practice based PhD at Curtin University. Many supervisors/lecturers in Design and Art have voiced their concerns over the appropriateness of logic based structure for PhD with creative production component. I am just wondering what are the structures that other universities are having for practice/creative based PhD. Have there been such discussions/arguments at your universities and how did you solve it? What are the main differences between PhD and practice based PhD, in terms of the process and credibility?
I am asking as i am currently chairing Graduate Studies for Design and Art at Curtin. Also my own PhD was not practice based, so i am hoping to get some insight on what others are doing with this PhD stucture.
Looking forward to your comments and many thanks in advance!
