    Abstract

    This paper offers a narrative account of the journey of one academic in the School of Computing and Engineering through the early stages of a professional doctorate in the Department of Educational Research at Lancaster University. Focusing on the first three phases of this programme, the author highlights how the experience facilitated deepening engagement in pedagogical research, leading to the adoption of practices which have generated increased rates of student retention and progression, and to the presentation of research findings in these areas to internationally recognised technology-enhanced learning conferences.
