ICDE Global Doctoral Consortium Track at the World Conference in Toronto

During the ICDE World Conference in Toronto, a Doctoral Students’ Track took place with the participation of 11 Ph.D students from various parts of the world, all of them doing research related to online, open and flexible learning.

Their research covers a range of highly relevant topics such as virtual internationalization, multiple devices for seamless learning, e-learning interactivity, design principles for game elements and integration and e- leadership development for universities, to mention a few.

The Doctoral Students’ Track allowed the Ph.D students to present their work regardless of how far they have currently come with their thesis, and get feedback on the spot from faculty and fellow doctoral students in a safe environment. The program also included topics of joint interest for Ph.D students, such as scholarly publishing and open research, the latter developed through a joint work shop with the Global OER Graduate Network – GO-GN.

The ICDE Global Doctoral Consortium is open for all Ph.D students doing research related to online, open, flexible and technology enhanced learning and enables a free ICDE membership along with the doctoral studies. As of today, Consortium consists of more than 170 Ph.D students from 45 different countries, all connected virtually through ICDE.
