The EDiTE research program Doctoral programm/„doctoral school” is not only a school but also a research community (a community of researchers). The program is to help students from different universities and research cooperation in various environments. This would enable them to acquire new knowledge and experience.
Learning environments Participating in research project students beyond realizing their own research project can take part in other research projects being implemented in the doctoral school, with the purpose of learning how to manage research projects, how to cooperate with other researchers, and how to reflect on the outcomes and processes of the project
Learning environments Designing and negotiating research projects: students beyond discussing their own proposed research design with their peers and their teachers are encouraged to take part in the design and in the negotiation of other Research Plans within the partner institutions. Work shadowing of senior researchers: students can follow the work days of senior researchers in the partner institutions and reflect on their experiences
Learning environments Literature review and meta analysis: students write a summary of the main studies and research, consider the critical points of current knowledge including substantive findings as well as theoretical and methodological contributions related to their topics. Students may prepare an overall synthesis of the relevant literature with an emphasis on analyzing and synthesizing the main outcomes and conclusions
Learning environments Journal clubs: students take part in the work of virtual communities organized around their research area to discuss and evaluate the reviews, publications and research proposals of group members. Academic debates: students take part in debates related to their research field through participating in virtual peer group discussions and various regional and national conferences.
Learning environments Problem discussion forums: current problems of teacher education may be discussed by various actors of teacher education. The forums can be organized face to face or in a virtual context. Workshops on research methodology: experts in a certain research methodology lead the workshop where students learn how to identify and evaluate the pros and cons of a research method Case study: students analyze together a case study of a developmental, innovative research project on teacher education
