Teaching Methods

The program is delivered over intensive residential weekends, normally Saturdays & Sundays, 8 days per month (up to 96 days in total per year). The DFPM is structured into three phases, each with its own assessment regime, designed to support the learner through to final submission. Participants must satisfy the requirements of each phase before they may proceed to the next. DFPM is not a conventional classroom-taught program, but rather a guided one in which participants will be formulating and pursuing their own particular inquiry together with others during the eight-day meetings, where they will work as a whole group and also in smaller learning groups with a supervisor and through email contact in between.  Leading practitioners and researchers will share insights, frameworks and perspectives and provide details about their own developing personal inquiries, which will be used as a basis for discussion, reflection and discovery. Participants will develop into an extended community of researching practitioners engaged in parallel journeys, which are participative, mutually informing and supportive, yet insightful and questioning. This will involve participants in exploring their practice in discussion, intensive reading and reflective writing.
