Into the Labyrinth : A PhD Comprehensive Portfolio

Alternative Dissertation (Alt-Diss)

Alternative dissertation formats can provide a “more authentic experience and reflection, and more creative abilities” in research and writing, which honour the “centrality of the researcher’s voice, experience, creativity and authority” (Jacobs, D. T. intro para). The intention of an alternative dissertation format is to offer alternative ideas that emerge from differing values, views of knowledge, and perspectives of reality. Alt Diss formats require and reveal virtues of “generosity, patience, courage, respect, humility, fortitude” (Jacobs, D. T. intro para).
