EDEN PHD SYMPOSIUM will be held on October 14, 2021 in co-organization of University of Zagreb, Faculty of Organization and Informatics and European Distance and E-Learning Network (EDEN). The Symposium, held in previous years in Barcelona (2018), Bruges (2019), Dublin (2019) and Temisoara (2020) has been designed to foster the exchange of experiences and knowledge among doctoral students doing research in the area of technology enhanced online, digital, open and distance learning, providing a valuable forum for the advancement of doctoral research. The Symposium is led by a panel of international experts.
Current doctoral students in the field of e-learning, educational technology or information systems are encouraged to submit short abstracts to present an overview of their research at the PhD Student Symposium. Proposals related to the conference theme topics are especially welcomed. We do encourage to reflect upon how your research may contribute to one of the conference theme topics. PhD students are currently engaged in doctoral research, i.e. have had their research proposals approved but have not yet defended their thesis. Priority will be given to students who already have collected data. The abstract should be in English and contain: 1. a 300-350-word description of the state of their research (including research title, research objectives/questions and methodology) and 2. a problem they would like to address in the symposium.
PhD students are invited to submit abstracts before September 1, 2021. The panel of international experts will review the abstracts and select students to participate. Authors will need to prepare a short presentation (between 5-10 slides) for the symposium. Symposium presenters will receive a certificate. The language of the symposium is English.
There is no fee for the EDEN PhD Symposium. PhD students who additionally want to attend the CECIIS Conference will have to pay the relevant registration fees. There is a reduced rate for young scholars.
