Taking the opportunity of being in Tashkent for the 4th Consortium Meeting on 1 October, UZDOC 2.0 partners also took part in a workshop about "The role of support staff in Doctoral Education". During this session participants discussed the recent developments in administration and management at universities and were introduced to the concept of "Professionals in Doctoral Education". This term reflects the growing trend of professionalization of the administrative and technical staff working in Doctoral Education, which is being addressed as crucial for the success of doctoral programs.
The group learnt about the profiles and responsibilities of these Professionals and reflected on the university management structures and how they can be further developed to better serve the needs of the institution and its stakeholders.
