ITK Doctoral Consortium provides an opportunity for current doctoral candidates to present their project in a safe, friendly and stimulating environment. The candidates will receive formative feedback from their peers and senior researchers in the field.

The ITK Doctoral Consortium has the following four objectives:

  • Provide time and space where doctoral candidates can present their research and meet other candidates;

  • Provide feedback on candidates research from other candidates and senior researchers outside their home institution;

  • Promote a network of supportive scholars and collaboration over institutional borders;

  • Provide a platform for future postdocs to meet with their potential future colleagues.

We invite doctoral candidates whose research is in the fields of learning environments, technology-enhanced teaching and learning, educational technology, and art & media education to apply for this opportunity. We aim to have candidates that are in different stages in their research to build zones of proximal development for all. The participating candidates, however, are expected to have a clear topic and research approach. For instance, the Doctoral Consortium is a good forum to present research on which the candidate is at present writing an article.

A selected number of participating doctoral candidates will be invited to submit a full paper to an academic publication forum (JuFo 1). Your submission and presentation can be in English, Finnish or Swedish.
