New CHEP Teaching Enhancement Fund project on ‘Emotions in PhD Research’

Published: 27 January 2020
Rosalind Willis

Dr Rosalind Willis from the Department of Gerontology, together with Faculty PGR Senior Tutor Dr Ruben Sanchez Garcia and PhD students Heather Mulkey and Paul Lewzey, has been awarded funding to work on a project about the PhD student experience. The project is funded by the Centre for Higher Education Practice (CHEP).

This project is about the emotional impact of data collection on PhD students. Many students are expected to work with data about sensitive topics, but can find this distressing. The aim of this project is to ascertain the extent of emotional support PhD students require, and to design training materials to address this need. If anyone has any questions please email
