This is a Cotutelle project with the University of Copenhagen, Denmark. The candidate will be jointly supervised by researchers from Deakin University and University of Copenhagen and graduate with a joint PhD from both institutions. It is anticipated that the PhD candidate will be available to spend at least six months across the candidature at the University of Copenhagen.
Digital technology has changed the everyday practices of healthcare and created a much more data-intensive form of healthcare delivery. Data are used not only for research and clinical purposes, but also for administration, legal controls and remuneration, while patients also generate their own data, and increasingly expect medical professionals to engage with data from tracking devices of uncertain validity. Data intensification thereby poses new challenges for clinical training, while simultaneously changing the very conditions for learning.
This scholarship is to support a doctoral candidate who will explore the intersection between work-based learning and the shift to a data-intensive clinical environment. The PhD project will draw together ideas from the fields of science, technology and society (STS) studies and education to understand how healthcare practitioners learn and work in a digitally mediated healthcare environment.
To work in the clinic today, is to work with data and associated digital technologies. Clinical supervisors frame their interactions with patients through and with data: how does this data-intensification affect how they teach in clinical environments? How does this affect how students or trainees learn ‘on the job’? How does it affect how students and teachers work together?
Projects can explore the impact of data-intensity on work-based learning for any health profession or profession. Projects that consider assessment, feedback or evaluative judgement (making assessments about quality of the work of self and others) would be particularly welcome. We anticipate a qualitative or ethnographic approach.
