Preview of an untethered doctorate of the 21st Century

Delivering a credible doctorate via the web is not only plausible but perhaps preferable if the full potential of next generation web technologies is deployed. However, it calls for a recasting of the roles of students and faculty and a reassessment of their maturity. Informed by theory and practice, this presentation cuts across multiple disciplines to preview an untethered doctorate of the 21st Century. How can doctoral directive faculty become more facilitative and how can doctoral students become more collaborative while still producing authentic scholarship?
